Responsible Sourcing

We care deeply about the way our ingredients are produced and expect the same from our suppliers

As a dairy company, milk is our primary ingredient and we care deeply about the way it is produced.

We care about how our ingredients, packaging, goods and services are sourced and produced and expect the same from our suppliers. Relationships are important to Saputo and vital to our ability to make high quality products. We aim to create an environment where we can build strong, sustainable and long-term relationships with our suppliers, employees and customers.

Animal welfare

We have zero tolerance for any act of animal cruelty. All of our supplying farmers must comply with our industry-leading Davidstow Farm Standards which reflect best practice in food safety and animal welfare and also ensure that our milk meets the strict requirements for infant formula.

Sustainable ingredients

We can trace milk and raw materials from farms and suppliers through to finished product. We are a working member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and all palm oil used in our spreads products is sustainable. Although we do not use any soy-containing ingredients in the products we manufacture, soy is in our supply chain due to its presence in the animal feed consumed by the cows producing the milk we use. We are therefore also a member of the Round Table on Responsible Soy Association (RTRS).
