At the heart of the in-depth study dedicated to our company: the commitment to sustainability, inclusiveness but also issues such as work well-being or the fight against waste.
Above all, the most important commitment is concreteness: “Corporate social responsibility for us means working on consistency every day, being credible, true, authentic, faithful to the chosen values. Our customers recognize us for what we do and not for what we say we do, because actions worth more than words – explained Silvia Santarelli in the interview – If our actions are consistent with the company’s values, vision and mission, starting from corporate social responsibility, reputation can become an important growth driver “.
Supporting the nourishment of people while preserving the environment and resources for future generations requires a constant commitment to offer consumers high quality, healthy and genuine products.
“We are working hard on certifications and international projects, without however losing sight of the territory and first of all the people who work with us, cornerstones for the growth and development of a better future – continues Silvia Santarelli – Soon we will also be engaged in a project to measure our social product footprint, a significant response to the issue of corporate social responsibility, from the ethical-social conditions to the production chain. We work every day to create valuable ingredients “.
