CSR and sustainability – digital magazine

CSR and sustainability – digital magazine

More than ever, the way food companies source ingredients, and manufacture and distribute their products can significantly impact social and environmental performance, as well as how consumers view those brands.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a broad concept addressing topics such as human rights, corporate governance, health and safety, environmental effects, working conditions and economic development. Sustainability is another key component of CSR that continues to gain currency in the food and beverage industry. Market data suggests products and companies that keep sustainability as a focus are viewed in a more positive light by consumers, increasing trial, quality perceptions and willingness to pay a premium.
