Sourcing sustainably | Commitment #2

Improve continuously our raw materials’ quality by clearly specifying our needs, strictly selecting our suppliers and reinforcing quality control chain from fields to biorefineries.
Operations Awards at Roquette

At the end of 2018, we recognized our best projects at the 2018 Operations Awards contest. More than 150 projects (versus 98 in 2017) were submitted and presented by our teams from all over  the world, and were reviewed by a Roquette jury of experts. 

Among the selected categories, several projects were linked to  the Supply Chain, demonstrating our commitment to continuously optimizing the quality and sustainability of our raw materials supply. 
Other teams introduced the creation of an online supplier evaluation system now used by the Group in China. This qualification tool allows us, through performance analysis and audits, to optimize our supplies, while promoting the continuous improvement of suppliers by demanding excellence of their products and services. 

Finally, various projects involving a new polypropylene packaging also demonstrated the cost optimization obtained from the implementation of a solution that offers the advantage of  water-resistant materials while being lighter and more flexible  and therefore more sustainable and responsible. 

This Awards event illustrates the dynamic engagement of our employees, who are ambassadors, contributors and pioneers of performance and sustainable development within our Group.
