Partnering with Our Suppliers
As both a retailer and manufactuer of products, we stay close to the roots of where our food comes from. We focus on purchasing quality goods from over 500 great food producers, a number of whom we have been working with for decades. We pride ourselves on paying promptly and rewarding suppliers of quality products with long-term relationships.
We are embarking on a journey with our producers to ensure that our relationships include engagement on sustainability. A key part of this is the development of a balanced scorecard for suppliers that will enable us to collaborate on improving performance on social and environmental factors.
We are members of the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX), an organisation dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains. We are encouraging our supply base to join the platform to help us ensure that labour standards in our supply base are observed.
