Being part of the world’s largest buyer of nuts we have a great opportunity to lead the way in sustainable nut sourcing. We connect directly with the people who grow the nuts right through to the people who enjoy them.
At home we work with retailers to deliver the quality products people demand – at good value and with great values.
We want to be sure that we source from suppliers who support communities and the environment too. We apply the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX) risk assessment tool and the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) code of conduct to audit our suppliers.
Furthermore, we recognise that international trade can have both positive and negative effects upon the communities involved, taking place “outside the factory gate” of our suppliers. As a result we seek to ensure that we understand and minimise the potentially negative impacts of international trade and equally positively strengthen the implications of trade for the companies we deal with and the communities they operate in.
