There is increasing interest in topics as improving livelihoods, working conditions and preventing deforestation. As a bridge between suppliers and customers, we have it within our sphere of influence to provide information and advice our partners about sustainable products. This enables our customers to choose more sustainable alternatives.
In several of our segments we work with certification programs such as Rainforest Alliance, UTZ, and Fairtrade. We recognize that certification is only a tool and not a goal in itself. We will continue to look beyond certification to see how the products we source benefit the wellbeing of all involved.
