Our approach to responsibility reflects the Raisio Group’s purpose – Food for Health, Heart and Earth. In our responsibility programme, the Good Food Plan, the health of the planet and people is taken into account. What is more, the responsibility of our products is assessed all along the way, from primary food production to production plant and to dinner table.
We have put responsibility at the core of our purpose, and also our strategy. Our strategy responds to the food transition, where different operators in the food chain are working to build a more sustainable food system in terms of the environment and climate.
Consumer behaviour is also undergoing a change, with food choices increasingly influenced, not only by taste and health aspects, but also by sustainability topics.
The five areas of our Good Food Plan 2022–2025 are:
The objectives of our responsibility programme are clearly linked to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. To this end, we have paired each responsibility programme project with a UN Sustainable Development Goal that we believe we can best contribute to through our activities.
The following goals were identified as the most relevant for our business: goal 3 – good health
and well-being; goal 9 – industry, innovation and infrastructure; goal 10 – reduced inequalities; goal 12 – responsible consumption and production; goal 13 – climate action.
We are passionate about the taste and healthiness of our products. Our plant-based products fit well with consumers’ efforts to add plant-based products to their diets.
We pay close attention to sustainable raw material choices and require that operators in our supply chain commit to Raisio’s ethical principles.
Our packaging choices are guided by the quality and shelf life of the product, the recyclability of the packaging and the minimisation of the amount of plastic.
We aim at excellent employee experience. During the recent years strengthening of the common corporate culture, development of common practices and working on values has been our priority.
We particularly focus on carbon neutrality of production and on material and energy efficiency. Our key environmental goal is carbon-neutral production by the end of 2023.
It has always been important for us to take care of the planet and makers of good food. Responsible food, made of sustainably produced raw materials, is healthy and environmentally friendly.
Raisio is committed to taking responsibility for its operating environment, environmental matters and personnel. We comply with all laws and regulations in the countries in which we operate.
