With seven billion people on our planet, all natural resources are under enormous pressure. We live in a world of rising temperatures, water shortages, high energy costs, insecure food supplies and a growing gap between rich and poor.
Continental Bakeries does not close its eyes to these global problems. Our business model combines profitable growth with sustainability.
- We improve nutrient profiles,
- minimize the impact on the environment,
- strengthen our positive social influence and
- offer inexpensive moments of pleasure
In order to realize our vision, we have made sustainability an integral part of our strategies, product developments and innovation processes. It is our goal as a company to make an active contribution to a world in which people, animals and the environment are treated responsibly.
- Products for daily, inexpensive moments of enjoyment
- Products that are produced and used in a responsible manner and where all raw materials come from sustainable sources.
- Respect for human rights and the common good
Our sustainability programme is based on 4 different pillars:
Working with customers
We support our customers in the implementation of their sustainability goals by taking sustainability as a starting point in product development.
Sustainable raw materials and packaging
Continental Bakeries is particularly focused on working closely with its key suppliers and packaging technologists to ensure sustainability.
We attach great importance to reducing our operating footprint: electricity, gas and water. We also focus on reducing waste. With regard to logistics, we are striving for greater efficiency in freight transport and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
Our fellow human beings are important to us
Sustainable growth can only be achieved with the right employees working in the right places. You need a culture where performance is consistent with core values. We are proud of our company, our people and our products! And last but not least, we want to play an active role in the local aid organizations where Continental Bakeries offices are located.
