Our Supplier Ethos
No business is built in isolation. Our relationships with our suppliers are as important as those with our customers. The value systems of our suppliers is an integral part of our business and the basis on which we choose our sources of supply.
FOOD SAFETY AND LEGAL COMPLIANCE
Our suppliers must comply with all food safety requirements, labeling regulation, and health certifications relevant to the product they supply. We look to raise the bar on food safety compliance within the food industry and expect our suppliers to do the same.
RESPONSIBLE, ETHICAL AND TRANSPARENT SUPPLY
We believe in full transparency of 100% of ingredients, production processes and product origins. All our suppliers are required to comply with our responsible and ethical sourcing policy to ensure their business practices reflect a level of integrity we are proud to support.
CREATING SUSTAINABLE LOCAL ECONOMIES
We believe in creating circular economies and the power of hand-ups not hand-outs. We look to source our products as local and direct as possible and incorporate local small businesses, for the maximum benefit of our communities.
