Purpose, vision & values

Everything we do as a company is driven by our purpose, vision and values. At Nutreco, we give our all, each day, to help our industry produce enough nutritious and high-quality food for the growing world population in a sustainable way. 

Our purpose

For us, Feeding the Future goes beyond a purpose – it’s our passion, and we are dedicated to working across the value chain to make it happen. To feed the global population in 2050, we will need to produce 70% more food than we do today – a momentous challenge for our industry and our world.  

Achieving our purpose of Feeding the Future in a sustainable way will require us to produce protein from more, and more varied sources – animals as well as alternative sources of protein, such as plant-based protein, meat or seafood developed from animal cells and protein produced through fermentation. And we will need a fundamental shift in how we think about the consumption, production and waste of food, at an individual, community, national and global level. With our expertise, passion and innovative products, we believe we can help our industry make a revolutionary change for the better and solve the challenge of Feeding the Future.

Our vision

Our vision for 2030 is to go beyond nutrition and into sustainable protein production: both in feed and food, both of animal and non-animal origin. We will evolve our business beyond providing products towards integrated solutions that are closer to the consumer.

 

Our values 

Our values reflect the culture of our company, promise to our customers and our purpose of "Feeding the Future". Innovative, capable, caring and collaborative underpin our fundamental beliefs and guiding principles of how we do business. The Nutreco values are supported by SHV's values of Integrity and Loyalty.
