Working with our suppliers

Our Expectations

Supplier partnerships are key to our reputation, so we work hard to establish clear and consistent expectations around how we work based on our Code of Ethics.

Our Values

It’s important that we share the same values. Our Core Values of Safety, Integrity, Respect have formed the backbone of our business for over 100 years.

Responsibility

We take our responsibility to the communities and environments around us, and the safety and wellbeing of each other very seriously. We ask our suppliers to reflect this approach across their businesses.
Enriching people’s lives around the world by making food extraordinary is our passion. We choose to partner with suppliers that share this passion and are driven by safety, innovation and continuous improvement in all aspects of their business.
