Embark on a journey of sustainability with SVZ! We are thrilled to present our latest Sustainability Passport showcasing our commitment to sustainable agriculture, efficient operations and valuing people.

Our three pillars

SVZ’s commitment to achieve 100% sustainable sourcing by 2030 underpins the entire business, and our focus is primarily on three core areas: agriculture, operations and people. By ensuring that ethical, environmentally responsible processes are introduced into each of these pillars, we can make a real difference as a sustainable fruit and vegetable ingredients supplier.

Sustainable Agriculture

We pride ourselves on a strong supply chain network that encourages collaboration and communication at every level of the business. Through initiatives like farmer training, ecosystem monitoring and constant auditing, we ensure the very highest quality and sustainability standards are implemented – from fields to factories.

Efficient Operations

All our factories and processing plants are located close to our sourcing areas, ensuring that our sustainable fruit and vegetable ingredients have optimal taste, colour and nutrient retention. It also means we reduce our dependency on transport, as well as our water and energy usage.

Valuing People

We care deeply about people. We believe that everyone should be treated equally and with respect. By building strong relationships with our partner farmers, we help improve their farms’ productivity and profitability – to support thriving and resilient communities.

Sustainable Initiatives

As we witness the impact of climate change, embracing environmentally responsible practices is no longer a choice but a necessity. We are always eager to work together with our partners and customers to share ideas and create new opportunities for real change.

Welcome to c2030

For us, sustainability is more than a buzzword. It’s an essential responsibility we take seriously as sustainable fruit and vegetable ingredients supplier. So seriously, in fact, that we’re committed to empowering the food and beverage industry as a whole to build a healthier, more sustainable future for all.

This is the goal at the heart of the c2030 initiative. A call to action for the whole food and beverage industry to improve its sustainability with tangible actions, c2030 aims to encourage real positive change across the sector – for the benefit of all.

With this programme, we aim to elevate the conversation beyond sustainable fruit and vegetable ingredients. We are committed to driving the industry forward – steering the sector towards a healthier future through a flexible, transparent infrastructure, an ethical approach to production, and a focus on nutritious diets.

It’s only by shifting our own mindset – and the mindsets of our stakeholders – that we can transform our business and implement real positive change across our supply chain. So, we can all grow better together.

Let's make the supply chain more sustainable, together.
