We are committed to responsible sourcing and look to use supply chain systems which minimise the environmental impact associated with the production of key commodities.
We are members of the Roundtable on Responsible Soy (RTRS), which is a certification scheme to help prevent the environmental impact of unsustainable soy production. We are also exploring alternatives to soy, for use in animal feed, as part of our farming programme.
Certified sustainable soy is not currently available in sufficient volumes to be competitive. However, we are tracking the levels of own brand products which contain soy and aim to increase our use of certified sustainable soy as it becomes more commercially viable.
This approach is designed to show suppliers that we are concerned about where soy used in our products is sourced from, supporting the protection of some of the world’s most important habitats, whilst holding down costs for the benefit of customers.
