Speaking for suppliers

Creating an exceptional end-to-end supply chain with raw material sourcing risk management

Enhancing our traceability capability

To bring consumers quality sensory experiences we provide products that require specific ingredients from all around the world. The journey of these ingredients is important to us, and with programmes and initiatives in place, we create traceability.

It’s a matter of fluidity

We all take water for granted: from our morning shower to the refreshing litres we drink every day. Water goes well beyond meeting our personal needs though: it is essential to the smooth running of cities, towns and businesses.
