We care about the future of our planet and our people. We are aware that by 2050, the world needs to feed 2 billion people more than now, an enourmous challenge. At FrieslandCampina Kievit we set ourselves challenging sustainability goals in line with FrieslandCampina’s purpose 'Nourishing by Nature'. We passionately work on better nutrition for the world, a good living for our farmers, now and for generations to come.
Providing sustainable solutions
FrieslandCampina Kievit aims to provide the highest levels of sustainable ingredients to our customers, with a unique portfolio of premium products. We partner with our customers in achieving their defined sustainability ambitions and we're more than interested in collaborating with customers and other partners in the value chain with the view to building a more sustainable future.
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 board 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 Plan in our plants. The aim is to achieve climate-neutral growth and reduce the use of scarce natural resources 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 feel personal accountability to address 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
For sustainable palm we use RSPO certificated palm oil, palm kernel and palm based emulsifiers, moving from RSPO MB more and more towards RSPO SG certification. In 2017 we can proudly state that our Vana-Grasa,-Crema and -Monte portfolios for the pastry & decoration, desserts and savoury market are RSPO SG.
