We have looked at our business and researched how we can further improve our sustainability. From this research we have created a sustainable living plan that aims to improve the health and well-being of more than 1 billion people, reducing our impact on the environment by half, and enhancing the livelihoods of millions. To do this we are focusing on pillars that will have the most significant impact on our business’s sustainability and in turn, our environment. The areas of focus are Health and Nutrition (Food Safety), Sustainable Sourcing and Packaging Waste.
Health And Nutrition: Greater Taste For Better Health
Between 2016 and 2020, Unilever Food Solutions have removed almost 3 000 tons of salt, with an average of 50% salt reduction across our savoury ranges. Salt has always been used to boost flavour however too much is not healthy. We’ve increased our herbs, spices, and other ingredients to give you that same great taste.
Informed Choices: Know What You’re Eating
We are on a journey to ensure all our oils, vegetables, herbs and spices are sustainably sourced. We do this to ensure your food tastes good while reducing the impact we have on the environment. We take care to include accurate ingredients, nutrition statements and allergen information on our labelling. Our team of Chefs have put together recipes designed to meet the highest nutrition standards.
Sustainable Packaging: Reducing Resources And Waste
We are continually evolving our packaging solutions to reduce waste and make all packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable. We make use of recycled materials and refill packs to reduce our plastic footprint. To further aid our efforts, we also encourage reusing our containers and recycling them. We mark our containers with relevant recycling symbols and their appropriate recycling method.
We are always striving to reduce our environmental footprint. We will continue to expand our goals for a more sustainable planet through sustainable sourcing, improving health and nutrition and developing recyclable packaging.
