Supplier Code of Conduct

We have issued a general policy, which sets minimum criteria that suppliers have to meet. We will only source from companies who conform to these criteria or who can demonstrate they are working towards them.

The code of conduct contains a general policy for all suppliers and two supplementary policies: one for agricultural products such as soy, palm oil and other row-crops as well as a section on dairy, and one for marine products such as fish meal and fish oil.

We have thousands of suppliers but the 300 biggest suppliers represent 76% of our spend. We asked those 300 to sign our policy in 2013.
