We are proud of the progress we have made and remain dedicated to making food matter for people and the planet together with our customers, suppliers and all our partners. In a sustainability journey, every step counts. And we are eager to take countless big and small leaps in the coming years.

Ellen Madsen, Group Sustainability Director

A milestone year

In his opening letter, our CEO Anthony Francheterre states: “We’ve been helping our customers for years on sustainability topics. Reducing sodium levels, combatting food waste, offering more plant-based options, sourcing sustainable ingredients, … were already very much a part of our core capabilities. What’s new is that we’ll accelerate these efforts in creating better for you and better for the planet food solutions.”

The acceleration clearly started in 2023. Among the many highlights are our commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative, dozens of successful audits for GFSI certification, and an increase in sales coming from healthier and more sustainable alternatives. To top it off, we received a bronze medal from EcoVadis for our sustained efforts. We look forward to further stepping things up in 2024.

For and with our partners

We don’t operate alone. Quite the contrary, we do everything in close collaboration with our customers, suppliers and other partners. To realize our sustainability ambitions, we are intensifying and rejuvenating our collaborations. Whether it is about meeting new consumer demands, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, embracing ethical business practices, enhancing the lives of people, or a different sustainability topic, we often see eye to eye with our partners and can achieve so much more together.
