Agricultural raw materials

Responsible use of raw materials and fair relationships with suppliers.

Sustainable sourcing of agricultural raw materials

Growing agricultural raw materials requires a lot of land and has a big impact on people, animals and nature. Therefore, we select our suppliers along the value chain with care, make sparing use of natural resources and forge respectful relationships with farmers, workers and producers.

Depending on the type of production, agricultural raw materials such as palm oil, soya, coffee and also peat and food staples such as rice, fruit and vegetables can have a negative impact on the environment. To minimize that impact, we work with partners to establish and implement solid standards and industry solutions.

Close partnerships and open dialogue

As well as sustainable manufacture, long-term resource security is of paramount concern to us. Because of this, we establish relationships of trust with local producers and suppliers. As well as providing financial support, we are also committed to reducing CO2, the provision of training, the availability of medical supplies and infrastructure renewal.
