At FrieslandCampina Kievit we set ourselves challenging goals w.r.t. sustainability and social responsibility in line with FrieslandCampina’s purpose 'Nourishing by Nature'.

Providing responsible and sustainable solutions
At FrieslandCampina Kievit we create moments of indulgence. We realise that a true moment of indulgence requires peace of mind regarding the origin and manufacturing of our ingredients. So we drive doing business in a responsible and sustainable way. We partner with our customers in achieving their defined CSR ambitions. We foster dialogue and collaborate with customers and other partners in the value chain with the view to building a sustainable future in a responsible way.
We know consumers love moments of indulgence and they’re also making more conscientious choices. They rely on us to provide ingredients with a transparent origin. Products that contribute to the preservation of our planet and its people. For years, FrieslandCampina Kievit link its ingredients’ names to their sustainable palm status, RSPO SG or MB. In all standard commercial documentation customers can immediately see to what extent the palm oil used in our ingredients is sustainable.
Key objectives for our supply chain include the purchase of raw materials from sustainable cultivation. Key for FrieslandCampina Kievit is the sourcing of sustainable palm oil. We strongly believe that this is of added value for now and generations to come. FrieslandCampina is an early member of the RSPO and FrieslandCampina Kievit positions in the market as frontrunner by sourcing Palm Oil SG for its Food Ingredients portfolio for the pastry & decoration, desserts and savoury markets.
In production key objectives include energy and waste water reduction by working smarter and more efficiently. We have implemented an energy Efficiency and water-reduction plans in our plants. The aim is to achieve climate-neutral growth and reduce the use of scarce natural resources, this in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. That’s how we focus on future generations.
We offer both palm free and palm sustain solutions
Globally, consumers look for products addressing social and environmental issues related to food production. The worldwide demand is moving towards products with a sustainable palm source and/or a palm-free source. At FrieslandCampina Kievit, we offer both solutions: palm free and palm sustain.
FrieslandCampina Kievit moving towards RPSO SG

In 2017/8 we proudly state that our Vana-Grasa, -Crema and -Monte portfolios for the pastry & decoration, desserts and savoury market move to RSPO SG.
