Food for the future
Food has a significant impact on economic, social and ecological sustainability. It's not an add-on service. It's a primary human need.
Food is energy rich and the production of food is naturally energy intensive. Because food matters, value-driven organizations making responsible choices in producing, sourcing and preparing food can make significant and positive social, economic and ecological impacts.
Food matters, which means even small steps towards better food deliver wins in terms of sustainability.
So what are we doing to make a difference?
Focus on people
Our constant goal is zero accidents. Our long-term target is to improve safety culture and attitudes towards safety. We follow the KPIs of preventive work and accidents to make development plans based on them. We emphasize safety and communicate it constantly throughout the organization and to our stakeholders.
Activities to boost occupational safety
Our goal is zero accidents in the workplace through:
- Safety guidelines outlined in booklets and other material
- We conduct self-assessment on regulations
- Safety risk assessments with all employees
- All accidents are reported immediately
- Accidents are investigated according to set procedure
- Lessons learned are communicated through monthly reports.
Corporate responsibility for starters
A few thoughts from Andreas Berggren, Managing Director of Fazer Food Services:
"People care about what they eat more than ever before. They are aware of how food influences their health and well-being, including both body and mind.
It has become clear that food is so much more than fuel and that the choice of food has a significant impact on economic, social and ecological sustainability.
For us this means taking responsibility for our actions. Economic, social and environmental impact is not just a corporate box to tick. It's something that helps us make a real difference in what we do and how we do it."
