At Knorr®, we’ve always prided ourselves on the quality of what we produce, from sourcing the best quality ingredients, to putting passionate and talented chefs in our kitchens.
We have a big ambition of getting ALL of our vegetables, meat, herbs and spices from sustainable sources by 2020. We are well on the way to reach our goal of sustainably sourcing our top 13 global vegetables and herbs by 2015. To make our ambition a reality, working with our suppliers, we have created the Knorr® Landmark Farms program.
Growing and nurturing our produce in healthy, good quality soil, with just the right amount of water is, in our experience, the best way to grow fine, tasty vegetables. It’s a quality we demand in all our ingredients.
Those among our supplier farms that are most advanced in sustainable farming practices have been made Knorr® Landmark Farms. This select group lead by example, demonstrating to our other farmers the positive impact that sustainable agriculture can have on the quality of raw materials – helping us to make great tasting products, while helping to protect the environment. A great example of one of our landmark farms is OLAM, located in California, who grows our sweet, fragrant onions. You can get a glimpse of OLAM’s farm in the video below.
Food is our passion, and nutrition lies at the core of Knorr®. Globally, by 2020 we will double the proportion of Knorr® products that meet the highest nutritional standards based on globally recognized dietary guidelines.
By 2020 we aim to reduce the waste material that goes to landfill by 50%, by investigating opportunities at every part of our supply chain.
We know halving our environmental footprint is ambitious but we are determined to make it happen by taking a multi-faceted approach, including reducing, reusing, recycling and minimizing packaging materials from our products.
We’re also working on contributing to the Unilever goal of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2020. We will achieve this by introducing improvements in our manufacturing process and by using raw and packaging materials that require less energy input in their manufacturing processes.
We’re certainly taking on a challenge, but we think it’s the right thing to do. At the heart of all this is our love for food and flavor, because we believe that looking after the environment where our food comes from can only make our ingredients great.
And we’ll go to any length, if it means delicious food on your plate.
