Promoting Good Health through Food

As food specialists, we endeavour to contribute to healthier societies every day by offering quality, safe and nutritionally balanced products and by promoting healthy eating habits.

Our priorities

Our strategic priorities in the development of this pillar in all countries and sectors where we operate are:

  • To invest in the quality and innovativeness of our Private Brands;
  • To ensure food safety;
  • To offer a trustworthy service;
  • To provide full nutritional information on the products we sell.

Our Priorities

Reformulations

We reduce the level of ingredients such as salt, sugar and fat in our products, making them healthier.

Differentiated Solutions

We create food solutions for people with special dietary requirements.

Communication

We offer nutritional information on our products to help consumers make the right choice.

Food Safety

We invest in the certification and monitoring of our products, facilities and processes.

Policies

To successfully implement our strategy, we design policies that guide the operations of our banners.

NUTRITIONAL POLICY

Our commitment to Promoting Good Health through Food comes from our recognition of the role that food can play in preventing diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases and, consequently, in promoting quality of life.

The Jerónimo Martins Nutritional Policy, based on the Guidelines for Europe published by the World Health Organization, is in line with the priorities defined in the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals and includes principles and priorities for the development of our Private Brands.

PRODUCT QUALITY AND SAFETY POLICY

Our priority is to offer our consumers safe and quality products, while striving to minimise the impact they have on the ecosystems.

The Quality and Product Safety Policy aims at the continuous and sustained improvement of stakeholder engagement when building our brands. Our quality and product safety standards have a strong scientific basis and we undertake specific commitments to develop more responsible products when it comes to animal testing, genetically modified organisms and microplastics, among others.
