At Vandemoortele we are committed to ensure responsible conduct on ethical, social and environmental issues.
Together with the Earthworm Foundation and our suppliers, we continue to look for ways to make a real difference on the ground. That change is made by setting clear goals and taking concrete actions.
"By working together with farmers, suppliers and local communities, Vandemoortele aims to tackle environmental and social problems that exist in the upstream supply chain."
Since 2018, we have been contributing to Earthworm Foundation’s initiative in the Aceh Landscape in Sumatra, Indonesia.
"Landscapes are places where we collaborate to regenerate nature and improve people’s lives."
The Aceh area is one of the largest unbroken tracts of rainforest in Southeast Asia and a very biologically abundant place. The landscape project aims to reduce deforestation and shows a balance in between production, conservation and good social and labour practices.
By supporting this locally embedded programme, we want to make a positive contribution that goes beyond our own supply chain.
