Respecting the Environment

Companies within the food sector face environmental challenges that may influence their business strategies and operational processes with the increasing scarcity of raw materials.

With our scale comes the responsibility of effectively linking supply and demand and creating supply chains that promote more sustainable production and consumption practices.

Environmental priorities are the conservation of biodiversity, fighting climate change, responsible waste management, and carefully choosing materials for packaging production.
