Sustainable raw materials

There are social and environmental challenges associated with certain raw material supply chains. To ensure that raw materials are produced with respect for people and the environment, several Orkla companies have become actively involved in efforts to improve conditions in the production of raw materials such as cocoa, palm oil, fish and shellfish.

Orkla contributes to ensuring responsible production of raw materials by adopting certification schemes, participating in industry initiatives and collaborating on projects with authorities and advocacy organisations. The Group’s aim is for agricultural products and marine raw materials that are part of complex global value chains to be sustainably produced by 2020.
