Our foundation on sustainability
Sustainability is firmly embedded in our corporate DNA. It shows in the careful use of natural resources, long-term partnerships with equitable partners, and our responsibility for people along our value chains.
We follow 3 principles to promote sustainability along our supply chains:
Reliable: We are a reliable, close partner for our customers and suppliers
Diverse: Our broad product range offers diverse added value in terms of sustainability
Responsible: With us, sustainable corporate governance is tangible
Products with added value
Our community-based product line features long-standing products from our range that have added value in terms of sustainability: they are traditionally used or produced and provide a fair income and a better standard of living for people in the countries of origin of the raw materials.
Upcycling and our product range
Many of our products support the idea of upcycling – including nut oils, fruit kernel oils and protein flours. Every component of the raw materials is used in the production process and the surplus is used to create something new.
"Since 1925, quality has been our responsibility to people and the environment. Ensuring this quality is one of our core competencies and a great motivation for us to make our supply chains more and more sustainable."
Promoting sustainable standards in our supply chains
We take our responsibilities seriously and are already working to meet the requirements of the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act. We identify social risks to eliminate human rights abuses, child labour and forced labour as a supplier and information provider to our customers.
