Curious about our progress on sustainability?
Our third sustainability report is online.

Vandemoortele has released its third sustainability report, regarding the topics of 2019 and ambitions for 2020. The report provides in-depth information on the four pillars of our sustainability approach: responsible sourcing, eco-efficient production, commitment to people and products you can trust.

Different milestones were achieved.  According to the 2019 WWF Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard, Vandemoortele is moving in the right direction regarding sustainable palm oil. We have improved significantly on safety and carbon emissions during transport and logistics. Many actions were taken on our commitment to people and different position papers were developed on key nutritional topics guiding our efforts towards tasty and reliable food.

You can find more information in this sustainability report about how Vandemoortele is building a tasty future, responsibly.
