Savencia brings in the #PositiveFood spirit
Savencia believes that commitment should be collective and undertaken in collaboration with its partners, clients, suppliers, and consumers. Partnership operations have thus been jointly developed with key players in the food chain, media, and social networks, with the objective of making a lasting positive impact on food transition. In Serbia, Mlekoprodukt launched the Biser Nutri Akademia, supported by the Institute of Public Health and the Ministry of Education. It is an educational program aimed at parents and children to promote delicious and healthy eating.
Nutritional quality: consistently higher!
In line with its mission “Leading the Way to Better Food“, Savencia is committed to contributing to public health objectives by offering minimally processed and as natural as possible products. The implementation of a Charter developed in 2019 continues, focusing on three main areas, and has led to even greater naturalness with a shorter list of ingredients. This is the case with Elle & Vire Light Cream, which is additive-free.
St-Môret, an anti-waste champion
The average French person throws away about 155kg of food each year, for a total of 10 million tons of waste per year in France. St-Morêt has chosen to involve itself lastingly in combating food waste: the brand collects unsold fruit and vegetables from the markets it visits and donates them to local charities alongside an equivalent weight of St-Môret packs. The brand’s teams are also present in marketplaces to meet consumers and raise their awareness of best anti-waste practices with the help notably of a booklet containing recipes and tips. In 2019, the operation had reached out to 8,000 market buyers and resulted in the provision of 2 tons of fresh products to “Banque Alimentaire” food Banks. In 2022, product donations nearly doubled compared to 2021 (+49.5%).
SAVENCIA, A EUROPEAN PARTNER FOR FOOD BANKS
Already active within the Food Banks (“Banques Alimentaires”) network in France, Savencia has recently signed a partnership with Food Banks in Europe, an organization present in 24 countries, as a means of encouraging all Group subsidiaries to combat food waste whilst at the same time helping the most needy in our society gain access to products of quality.
