Develop a sustainable development journey inspired by our customers’ expectations
Strengthen sustainability in our innovation processes
With its responsibility and proximity to its customers and partners, Roquette is committed with its stakeholders to further strengthen its Sustainable Development strategy.
This year, in India, we decided to increase the number of direct contracts with local farmers. To do this, we organized various dedicated events in which about thirty local farmers were able to visit our factories, particularly in Viramgam, in the state of Gujarat (India).
It was an opportunity for us to present our requirements in terms of quality standards and to exchange with them for a better direct collaboration in corn supply for the site. The Group has thus demonstrated its willingness to interact more and more with its suppliers in order to create a genuine working dynamic committed to ensuring quality and excellence for each of our raw materials.
In addition, we have also signed an agreement with the FPO (Farmer Producer Organization), which brings together small producers and farmers associations to give them a better understanding of the market, of their business and possible investments, thus helping them to develop their activity. In the same way, at La Harpe (United States) we have strengthened our cooperation with local farmers by guaranteeing optimized storage of our raw materials through using quality equipment.
Finally, we are committed to offering training to our suppliers to further develop their know-how and thus enable them to better collaborate with our sustainable and responsible sourcing.
