Sustainably sourced food tastes better and is better for the world we share.
We at Knorr Professional know that supporting and creating sustainable farming practices will not only produce delicious dishes, but will also ensure that foods can be grown for many years to come.
That’s why we only choose suppliers who follow the guidelines in the Unilever Sustainable Agriculture Code, which are based on sustainable agriculture, including water usage, biodiversity and soil quality.
Here’s why sustainability matters:
- It’s better for the soil. In conventional farming practices, farmers use synthetic fertilisers and pesticides to grow crops and maximise yield. Over time, the soil becomes infertile, causing farmers to purchase even more synthetic fertilisers. Sustainable farming means balancing yields with soil health, keeping it naturally nutrient-dense.
- It’s better for our forests. Our tropical rainforests are under threat. It’s not good for the animal and plant species in these forests and it has a major impact on pollution (trees absorb C02). Sustainable farming practices ensures our current land is always kept usable, negating the needs to destroy more forests.
- It’s better for our rivers. The use of pesticides and fertilisers means that many of our rivers have become polluted, which has a major environmental impact and a huge impact on human health.
- It’s better for biodiversity. Relying on only a handful of crops is a dangerous position to be in. As soon as disease affects these crops, our food source is under huge pressure. Growing different types of crop species is better for diversity, which is better for us and the world we share.
It’s for these reasons and many more that Knorr Professional is committed to sustainable farming practices. Better for your dishes, and the world we share!
Knorr Professional will leave a good taste in your mouth – for more reasons than one!
