Sustainable Agriculture

The quality and integrity of our products depends on a sustainable supply chain with successful and thriving farming communities and ecosystems.

We believe sustainable agriculture offers solutions to interrelated issues such as human rights, water security, climate resilience, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction and women’s empowerment.

We are working with our suppliers and a range of partners to create systemic change in our agricultural supply chain.

Cultivating ingredients better

Evaluated more than 500 suppliers across 115+ countries and territories against the Principles for Sustainable Agriculture framework

Our priority ingredients represent about 80% of our total annual agricultural ingredient purchases, including our main natural sweeteners, fruit juices, coffee, tea, soy and timber products.

Our goal is to more sustainably source 100% of our priority agricultural ingredients.

Sustainable ingredients

We source a wide range of ingredients from agricultural raw materials such as sugarcane, sugar beet, corn, fruits, coffee, tea and soybeans from complex global supply chains and an expanding range of new ingredients like nuts, herbs and dairy.

Ensuring these ingredients are produced in a way that respects farmworkers and their communities while also protecting ecosystems is important to us.

Principles for Sustainable Agriculture (PSA)

We are committed to working with our suppliers to promote sustainable agricultural practices and build supplier capabilities to meet the standards for human and workplace rights, environmental protection and responsible farm management.

Our Principles for Sustainable Agriculture (PSA) describe The Company’s first principles for sustainable agriculture based on environmental, social and economic criteria.

Our Supplier Guiding Principles are aligned with our Human Rights Policy that set out our expectations for responsible workplace policies and practices for our Tier 1 suppliers.

Engaging our suppliers

We do not buy agricultural raw materials directly from farms, but mostly processed and refined ingredients from suppliers. Therefore, it is very important to us to work with our suppliers to achieve our vision of sustainable agriculture and to work with them to engage their farm base, with an emphasis on collaboration and continuous improvement.  

We are exploring ways to integrate sustainable agriculture issues in our supplier audit procedures, for example when we audit our Supplier Guiding Principles and food quality requirements at the processing facilities.

We are also committed to collaboration across the wider industry and support credible third-party standards to simplify assurance and certifications for the farmers in our supply chain. For example, the Farm Sustainability Assessment of the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform, the Bonsucro sustainable cane standard and Rainforest Alliance certifications are three of the leading standards we support.  

In addition, we engage directly with farmers in key sourcing regions to help address material issues in our agricultural supply chain.
