Taking care of our world
Sustainability has always been important to the business and it is reflected in the clear, measurable commitments outlined in our Taking Care of our World strategy. This strategy has become embedded in the business, and in 2018 we added further commitments to tackle plastic packaging right across our supply chain.
- Inspiring healthier lives. We will improve the health of 2 million consumers across the island of Ireland.
- Building sustainable communities. We will make a positive impact on the planet by enabling our partners to make every local community in Ireland a sustainable community.
- Sourcing responsibly. We will be the most trusted food operator across the island of Ireland, known for the integrity of our supply chain from farm to fork.
- Caring for our world. We will minimise the impact of our operations on the world around us and use our network to inﬂuence others to do likewise.
