Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

NORDEX FOOD prioritises CSR because consideration, common sense and care have always formed the basis for the decisions made in the company. Management attaches importance to the work NORDEX FOOD does to create positive value for people, the environment and the economy.

Our work with CSR is based on the UN Global Compact and focuses on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Specifically, this translates into:

Recycling water in our dairies

Investments in installations that run on renewable energy sources

Using sustainable palm oil in our production

Optimal and sustainable packaging solutions.

Working with our milk suppliers on animal welfare.

Clear statement to our partners and employees that we do not tolerate corruption and bribery.
