SUSTAINABLE IS MULTIPLE
Acting sustainably is vital nowadays, and for us it means: taking account of future generations when consuming raw materials and other treasures of the earth. Not consuming more than can grow back. And taking social and economic responsibility in addition to ecological responsibility. At Freeze-Dry Foods, we have therefore based our sustainability policy for our freeze dried and air dried ingredients on three pillars:
Using skills, living fairness, sharing knowledge.
We see it as our job to provide the food industry with the perfect ingredients from all over the world. To do this, we bring together the best. Farmers around the globe contribute their resources for cultivation. We at Freeze-Dry Foods contribute product and quality know-how. And the food industry focuses on production. If everyone can contribute their skills in this way, it is a sustainable process that benefits everyone.
When food producers receive a fair wage, this not only prevents exploitation. It also creates sustainability. Social cohesion, organic farming across the board and international justice in economic activity are all part of this for us. This is one reason why we are, among others, a member of SEDEX and SMETA certified, which stands for responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.
When you share your knowledge with others, you behave in a sustainable way. Because in this way, production and cultivation can be improved. This saves not only raw materials and other resources, but also climate-damaging CO². We pursue this approach consistently and stand firmly by our suppliers' side with decades of expertise in product cultivation and processing. The goal is ingredients that are in harmony with people and nature.
WE ARE ON THE WAY.
For us at Freeze-Dry Foods at the head office in Greven, one thing is clear: We want to become more and more sustainable, in the company, in the processes and with our products.
That's why we have set goals in terms of climate and the environment. Some we achieve in the short term, others step by step with long-term commitment. One of the major goals is to achieve climate neutrality, i.e. 0% CO² emissions by 2025.
At the same time, we know that as a food-producing company we will always leave a footprint - our path is to steadily reduce this footprint with many individual measures. Read some examples here.
To be continued.
EVERY IDEA COUNTS.
