Sustainability framework

Developing a sustainable foundation for the next generation

As a fourth-generation family business, we strive to uphold our responsibility, both collectively and individually, to enhance our local communities by making them a better place to live and work now and in the future. We recognise that this responsibility extends to the environments, landscapes, individuals and communities in our value chains as we learn more about the impacts of our global business models.

To guide our sustainability actions and ensure focus and consistency across all our businesses, we have created a framework of four pillars: Our Sourcing, Our Planet, Our Family, Our Communities.

We stand by the products we source

Delivering products sourced to high standards from transparent supply chains requires us to work in partnership with our suppliers to assess, understand, reduce and mitigate human, animal and landscape impacts.

A shared responsibility for a shared planet

Reducing the environmental impact of our end-to-end business operations means quantifying our carbon emissions, waste streams including food waste and packaging and putting in reduction plans place that are aligned to near term science-based targets and ultimately Net Zero 2050 ambitions.

Creating the conditions for our people to thrive

We empower our people to reach their full potential in a safe, diverse and inclusive workplace where all our colleagues can bring their best selves to work.  We want to create a sense of belonging for everyone.

We benefit greatly from our teams’ talent, skills and commitment, so we are dedicated to investing in their development and wellbeing.

We take pride in building relationships based on our core values of honesty, integrity and unity.

Our success is better when we share it

Creating meaningful partnerships to share our success means becoming part of the communities in which we operate, making them better places to live and work now and in the future.
