Learn about the life cycle of our products
Our efforts related to sustainability cover the entire life cycle of our products. This means that we carry out all our activities in a responsible manner, from the supply of ingredients for the use of energy, water and raw materials, until the use of increasingly recyclable protective packaging, the optimization of the amount of materials used, and product transportation that uses highly efficient methods.
Our sustainability approach includes:
Responsible stocking of ingredients
Growing or raising grain and meat used in our products requires significant amounts of energy, water and nutrients and, in general, represents a big part of the environmental impact of these products.
With the goal of diminishing the impact these ingredients deal to the environment, we're working closely with our providers and others to better understand our supply chain, identifying the most important problems and opportunities and improve our future performance.
The packaging of our products is important to prevent any food waste, that is why we work to optimize the weight and volume of our packages, ensuring to our customers our high quality standards.
We are also leaders in the development and use of renewable materials, procured in a sustainable fashion, and also in providing support for initiatives that intend to recycle or produce energy from used packages.
Finally, we also use recycled materials where an environmental benefit exists and its use is appropriate.
