We identified three material areas of concern to deliver on our corporate responsibility of running a successful business:
- We want to be a Good Employer
We want our employees to stay with us, to be satisfied with their employment and to reflect this onto our customers. To achieve this sentiment, we want them to understand what they are doing and why they are doing it, while feeling the stability and security of a family company. We also want them to have direct access to the person responsible for their area of involvement. Whenever possible, we favor promotion from within. Finally, although we face all the challenges of a fast-moving economy and must challenge our employees as well, we respect their need for a healthy work-life balance and abstain from too much pressure.
- Health, Safety and the Environment have become key priorities for us
We have evolved from a trading company into a production and supply chain management company. We have therefore made it our top priority to reach benchmark standards within the shortest possible time-frame. We remain committed to further improving the health and safety culture with our people as well as reducing the environmental footprint of our assets beyond pure compliance to be among the best in class.
- We want to move towards more Sustainable Food Systems
Modern agriculture and its supply chains, of which we are a part, face three challenges: we have to make available a growing food supply; we have to do so at affordable prices; and we have to reduce our environmental footprint. Where ever we can contribute towards these goals, we must promote using modern know-how, modern practices and modern assets among our employees and our customers.
