Sustainable food

Raisio's vision is to be a forerunner in healthy, ecological snacks with leading brands and an active developer of the sustainable food chain.

Ecological pioneering 

Responsibility is an integral part of Raisio's operations and strategy, combining innovations, healthiness, ecology and snacks. For ten years already, we have actively contributed to the responsibility of our own operations and of the whole food chain through our environmental innovations, among other things. 

Raisio's key responsibility themes are sustainable food chain, healthier food, and safety and wellbeing at work. We have set measurable targets for these themes in our Responsibility Programme for 2016-2018. As a forerunner in plant-based nutrition and an expert in animal feeding, Raisio has the ability to develop the sustainable food chain and to increase wellbeing of consumers and animals with its high-quality products. 

Raisio is a participant in the UN Global Compact sustainability initiative.
