Key Sustainability Commitments

Spotlight Target Area: Raw Materials and Suppliers

Dairygold's sustainability strategy is built across the supply chain from farm to customer and is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the Dairy Sustainability Framework, and Origin Green. The company is committed to operating transparently and responsibly throughout its supply chain to ensure continuity for future generations. The company's Origin green plan works to reduce its environmental impact and enhance its societal contribution by focusing on four pillars of sustainability, which are the environment, the supply chain, people, and the community. Dairygold proudly maintains 100% SDAS certification for all of its milk suppliers and has the ambitious target to source 100% of its key ingredients by 2025 sustainably. Throughout 2021, significant progress was made by the company under this target, and 85% of the company's key ingredient suppliers had sustainability certifications exceeding their 75% milestone by 10%.
