November 2017, Oudenhoorn, the Netherlands
Last year Farm Frites has updated its strategy on sustainability to become an accelerator of sustainability in the potato chain. From farm to fork, and to feed the world by working together with farmers, customers and other stakeholders. In the sustainability report of 2016 we reflected on the progress made. The report has been assessed by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy of the Government of the Netherlands. It was rewarded with 112 points in the Transparency Benchmark. The benchmark is an annual assessment of the sustainability reports of the 500 largest Dutch companies on:
· Communication on sustainability
· Transparency of reporting
We have shown a great improvement over the years. In fact, Farm Frites is now preforming better than the average Dutch large company. Within the potato fries sector we are one of the leaders.
The 2017 report will have a broader scope and include our production locations in Poland and Egypt, besides the Dutch and Belgian sites.
