Our commitments to you and to future generations

Sustainable entrepreneurship is high on Puratos’ agenda. We aim to embed our social responsibilities into our entire value chain, going from the sourcing of raw materials up to the usage of our products by customers and consumers. We have committed to be a company that not only continues to deliver strong financial results, but also continues to have a positive impact on society. We feel that as a responsible food company it is important to deliver a life changing social contribution in all locations in which we operate.

Our commitments to you and to future generations are set out in six sustainable pillars: Health & Well-Being, Responsible sourcing, Planet, Heritage, People and Community. Next to our six pillars, our Project Mars reflects our vision towards the future and our dedication to long term research to improve the quality of life on Earth.
