13 August 2013 - Sonneveld and Socially Responsible Enterprising (Corporate News)

Since 2009, Sonneveld has been actively involved with Socially Responsible Enterprising (SRE) in many different areas. This subject is a ‘hot item' for companies which, in addition to realising profit, want to take responsibility for people, society and the environment. For example, we separate our waste, we carefully manage our energy consumption, we focus on the use of sustainable ingredients and we support Bake for Life.



Trends & Developments

Sonneveld is constantly looking for areas of improvement in its SRE policy and therefore the company is always searching for new developments. New developments are based on changes in the law or initiated by consumer trends. Since January 2013, Dutch legislation regarding the use of salt in bread has changed. Ahead of these changes, Sonneveld reduced the level of salt in all Dutch products and developed more than 20 kinds of Clean Label products over the past seven years, as this is a huge trend in many countries. Sonneveld is constantly developing unique bread improvers and bread mixes based on health trends.


Socially Responsible Enterprising

People have been thinking and working in line with the SRE principles within some parts of the Sonneveld organisation for many years now. People, planet and profit are the main pillars where the SRE activities are focussed on. Sonneveld is committed to actively using natural ingredients in its production processes and therewith preserving the environment for future generations. Customers are also supported by Sonneveld by offering products which contain Green Palm.

Sonneveld is committed to actively using natural ingredients in its production processes and therewith preserving the environment for future generations. Customers are supported by Sonneveld by offering products which contain Green Palm. Sonneveld, as a member of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) since 2010 together with other Dutch companies, made sure regulations were created concerning the production of sustainable palm oil.

As of October 2010, Sonneveld has been compensating for its annual palm oil usage by GreenPalm certificates via the ‘Book and Claim’ principle. Sustainable palm oil comes from various certified sources and is kept separate from ordinary palm oil throughout the whole chain. Sonneveld is audited periodical to insure the use of certificates. Read more about Sonneveld and sustainable palm oil.
