The Origin Green Charter lists raw material sourcing as a mandatory area as it is a key business area of food and drink companies. Sustainability really begins with responsible sourcing, but the navigation and management of sourcing can be a difficult task as supply chains become more and more complex.
Sedex, a not for profit membership organisation, has recently released a two of a series of six short films called Responsible Sourcing Insights which provide excellent information. The videos with the titles: Getting to grips with Responsible Sourcing and Tackling complexity, feature interviews with leading multinationals, suppliers, trade bodies, NGOs and other experts.
Take a look and see what you could take out of these examples to make further improvements to your company’s raw material sourcing policies.
