PROTECTING HUMAN RIGHTS ACROSS OUR SUPPLY CHAIN
We’re committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our business or our supply chains. We’re members of Sedex, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve ethical and responsible business practices in global supply chains. We also work collaboratively with our partners to manage all kinds of risks – including human rights issues – through EcoVadis, an online platform that helps companies assess the sustainability credentials of their suppliers.
HOW WE SOURCE OUR INGREDIENTS
We use a wide variety of ingredients in our portfolio of products, and we’re committed to ensuring our supply chain remains sustainable, and respects human rights and the environment.
DEFORESTATION -FREE SOY
Demand for soy is the leading cause of deforestation and the displacement of farmers and indigenous people around the world. As 77% of all soy grown is used for animal feed, we must take action in this area. We have made a commitment to the UK Soy Manifesto, which is an industry-wide pledge to ensure that all the soy used in the UK is deforestation-free by 2025. To fulfil this promise we are moving to sustainably-sourced soy. We’re also working closely with our farmers to better understand and therefore reduce their soy usage.
We’ve aligned our commitment to protecting human rights with Stronger Together, a multi-stakeholder initiative aimed at tackling modern slavery in supply chains
We are signatories of the UK Soy Manifesto, which aims to minimise the environmental impacts of soy production and improve the livelihoods of soy farmers and their communities
We are members of the Food Network for Ethical Trade (FNET), an initiative made up of primarily UK-based suppliers and retailers whose mission is to improve human rights in global food supply chains
We support our suppliers in prioritising human rights throughout their operations through information sharing platform EcoVadis
