Here at Alpro we pride ourselves on treating the earth’s resources with respect – after all, we’ve got a lot to thank the planet for. We’re always looking for ways to tread lightly and more sustainably; follow our plant-based ingredients on their journey from earth to spoon.
First off, we always start by carefully selecting the highest quality nuts, oats, rice, coconuts and soya beans.
We never have and never will use genetically modified soya beans. We ask all our suppliers to sign up to our ethical charter and we can trace the source of all our beans.
Knowing where every bean comes from and keeping track of our suppliers means that we guarantee that our ingredients never come from deforested areas.
We source our grains, beans and nuts as locally as possible. All our almonds come from the Mediterranean. More than half of our soya beans come from European countries, such as France, Italy, and Austria.
Eco-friendly ideas run through every bit of our cycle. We harvest all our crops and check and clean all our ingredients using as little water as possible, and recycle wherever we can.
We go to great lengths to keep our transport footprint as light as possible. Sometimes, that means floating our goods to the factory down a river or a canal. After all, fewer miles mean less fuel and cleaner air.
Our plants are transformed into tasty foods, drinks, alternatives to yogurt, and delicious desserts, to be enjoyed by you.
We’re fanatical about monitoring our energy efficiency, reducing carbon emissions and limiting water usage everywhere we can. And we’ve started putting waste heat and renewable energy sources to good use too.
Alpro works with WWF (The World Wide Fund for Nature) on numerous sustainability projects around the globe. Close to our hearts is the Climate Savers programme – a global initiative bringing businesses and industries together to heighten awareness of climate change and reduce energy emissions.
Our Tetra Paks are fully recyclable and designed to impose minimum impact on the environment.
