Building an end-to-end sustainable supply chain demands a full understanding of all our activities and those of our farmers, communities and suppliers from seed to shelf. Across our 16 product platforms in 65 countries we have broken down our value chain into component parts for evaluation against sustainability criteria, with the end goal of developing the Olam Sustainability Standard which can be applied throughout our entire operation.
The Olam Sustainability Standard rests upon our three pillars of sustainability – economic prosperity, social welfare and environmental stewardship. In our supply chain we have segmented this into six distinctive areas.
Across all areas we believe we should raise the bar of expectations. Not only do our customers demand products that meet increasingly high standards, but we expect it of ourselves and have a duty to do so for all our partners and our planet.
