Responsible purchasing

Suppliers are important business partners for Orkla companies, and the Group makes active efforts to promote improvements in its supply chains through its companies. Orkla therefore emphasises the importance of setting clear requirements for its suppliers with regard to human rights, working conditions, environmental management and anti-corruption efforts.

In accordance with Orkla’s decentralised organisational structure, purchases are made by the individual Group companies, although purchasing is coordinated within business areas wherever appropriate. The companies make a significant proportion of their purchases from suppliers in the country or region in which they are located.
