'The global population could rise to 10 billion by 2050. This demands a great deal of ingenuity from food manufacturers and distributors. Without focusing on sustainability, we will all be asking too much of our planet. Aviko wants to make its contribution by achieving sustainable cultivation and processing of potatoes.'
Aviko Group Executive Board
In recent years, awareness of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has further increased. Energy shortages, obesity and rising landfills increasingly lead us to wonder: how can Aviko help reduce global environmental and health problems?
Creating value from potatoes has been Aviko's aim for over 50 years. As a potato-processing organisation, we use almost everything in our business operations that nature offers us. This efficient approach creates benefits for people, the planet and Aviko.
In order to properly promote its CSR policy, Aviko has defined four objectives:
- Maximum value of the potato.
- Treating the natural resources and the environment with respect.
- Manufacturing tasty and nourishing potato products at a constant quality.
- Life cycle-based personnel policy.
