SUSTAINABILITY

Our responsibility

Sustainable company

We take responsibility for the effects of our business activities on people, the environment and business operations. We make conscious choices to achieve a balance between these three important elements. For example, our waste stream is processed into animal feed by a GMP+-certified company and we use FSC-certified cardboard as much as possible to minimise the impact on deforestation.

Energy consumption is reduced as much as possible and raw materials are of sustainable origin as much as possible. Employee welfare is important for us and social organisations are selectively supported.

Sustainable cultivation

Rainforest Alliance Certified

At the customer’s request, we use Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa and hazelnuts. For this, we are audited annually by SGS. The Rainforest Alliance Certified label has set up a sustainability programme for farmers growing coffee beans, cocoa beans and tea. Rainforest Alliance Certified focuses on professionalising farmers’ farming practices, improving workers’ social services, farmers’ economic progress and environmental management. Rainforest Alliance Certified traceability system ensures that raw materials have actually been grown responsibly. Their mission is to create a world where sustainable cultivation is the norm.

Organic

Skal

Skal is an independent administrative body (zbo) and ensures that the organic production, processing and trading of products complies with the organic EU regulation, the Dutch Agricultural Quality Law and the regulations and principles of Skal organic monitoring.
