Puratos has become one of the first companies that signed the EU Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Business and Marketing Practices. We took the decision to sign the EU Code of Conduct as it is our intention to contribute to a common aspirational path towards sustainable food systems. It is the reflection of Our Commitments to You and to Future Generations.
The EU Code of Conduct is one of the first deliverables of the Farm to Fork Strategy and an integral part of its action plan. The Code includes tangible and measurable actions, which actually contribute to a food environment that makes healthy and sustainable food choices easier. It contains voluntary commitments for action together with a monitoring and evaluation framework to measure progress. The progress will be therefore measured by the EU Commission.
At Puratos, we are very pleased to actively contribute to the overall objectives of the Farm to Fork Strategy and the European Green Deal.
The commitments we submit under this Code are part of our existing sustainability strategy and reflected in Our Commitments to You and to Future Generations.
Those commitments cover environmental, social and health sustainability dimensions and reflect our six sustainable pillars: Health & Well-Being, Responsible sourcing, Planet, Heritage, People and Community. Next to our six pillars, our Mission to Mars Programme reflects our vision towards the future and our dedication to long term research to improve the quality of life on Earth.
