Impact Report 2023
Building a sustainable future by enabling our customers to have a positive and better impact on well-being, communities and the planet we live in, through all that we do.
We consistently incorporate social and environmental impact into decision-making because we consider it important to the success and profitability of our business. By whom we partner with, which clients we take on, and repercussions on the materials and energy use. (Value Chain Policy)

Doing well and doing good.
We’re used to operating by the maxim “you can have cheap, fast or good: pick two”, but with the triad of sustainability, happiness and profit you really can have all three. In fact, with those things as a focus they actually nourish each other.
Companies are composed of individuals and we can do both, do good and do well. In fact, it’s more rewarding.
The value of a company’s goods and services is relative to the waste it generates. Sustainability and happiness are not at the expense of profit but a means to it.
This year I released Foodforce for Good: The 101 plant-based deliciousness of the world. How our love for food can support who do not have enough to eat. ALL profits goes to Action Against Hunger.
We are in a moment in history where we have the data, we well know the consequences if we don’t act, we have the skills, knowledge, technology, influence… to make a difference. Past generations haven’t had all of these. Future ones won’t have the timing. It’s a pivotal time. We can make a dent, we can be part of the solution. There is a better way to do business.
The question is: Are you willing to be part of it?
