We take time to build and sustain long-term supplier relationships to ensure that we understand the full end-to-end journey of our ingredients from growing to processing, and that outputs are maximised, reducing waste. We work with suppliers to ensure that they implement and maintain environmental management systems to manage areas including pollution, water, emissions, energy and sourcing.
We pride ourselves on our Social, Ethical and Environmental Business Policy, which is embedded in our management system and sets out the standards of employment that we require of our product and other major suppliers to conduct their business in line with. These standards are set in accordance with the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code and International Labour Organisation fundamental conventions. In addition to standards of employment, our policy covers avoiding bribery and corruption, adherence to the Modern Slavery Act, health and safety management systems and environmental management systems.
