Being a responsible business
For us, being a responsible business is about recognising the impact a company has on its stakeholders, whether that’s employees, shareholders, customers, consumers or the local communities in which it operates. In short, it's about wanting to use the position you have to do good.
When it comes to making choices about where they work and what they buy, people today care more and more about a business’ approach to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). They want to deal with companies that act in a responsible way, giving them brands they can really trust.
At Allied Bakeries, we strive to act responsibly in everything we do. There are several strands to our responsible business agenda:
Ethical trading: behaving in an ethical way, using properly sourced sustainable resources wherever practicable and working with customers and suppliers to comply with good, fair trading practices.
Environment: recognising and reducing the impact our business has on the environment, from emissions and energy, to our use of plastics and minimising waste.
Health and Wellbeing: baking wholesome, tasty bread and labelling our products with clear nutrition information to allow consumers to make informed choices.
As a business within the Associated British Foods group of companies, we feature in the Associated British Foods plc ABF CR report.
