Acting sustainably is vital in today's world, and for us it means showing consideration for future generations when consuming raw materials and other treasures of the earth. Not consuming more than can grow back. And taking social and economic responsibility in addition to ecological responsibility. At Freeze-Dry Ingredients, we have therefore based our sustainability policy on three pillars:
Using skills, living fairness, sharing expertise.
We see it as our mission to provide the food industry with the perfect ingredients from around the world. To do this, we bring together the best. Farmers around the globe contribute their resources for cultivation. At Freeze-Dry Ingredients, we contribute product and quality expertise. And the food industry focuses on production. When everyone can contribute their skills in this way, it's a sustainable process that benefits everyone.
When food producers receive a fair wage, this not only prevents exploitation. It also creates sustainability. Social cohesion, organic farming across the board and international justice in economic activity are all part of this for us. This is one reason why we are, among others, a member of SEDEX and SMETA-certified, which stands for responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.
Those who share their knowledge with others behave sustainably. Because in this way, production and cultivation can be improved. In addition to raw materials and other resources, this also saves CO² that is harmful to the climate. We pursue this approach consistently and stand firmly by our suppliers' side with decades of expertise in product cultivation and processing. The goal is ingredients that are in harmony with people and nature.
WE ARE ON THE WAY.
For our Freeze-Dry Foods headquarters in Germany, one thing is clear:
We want to become more and more sustainable, in our companies, in our processes and with our products. That's why we have set goals in terms of climate and the environment. Some we achieve in the short term, others step by step with long-term commitment. One of the major goals is to achieve climate neutrality at our German headquarters, i.e. 0% CO² emissions by 2025.
At the same time, we know that as a food-producing company, we will always leave a footprint - steadily reducing this further, with many individual measures, is our path.
