“At Cerealto Siro Foods we are getting closer to the earth, by the hand with local farmers and suppliers, to better meet the needs of our customers and consumers”
At Cerealto Siro Foods we are concerned about ethics and integrity in the supply chain. We believe in a common framework of excellence, which requires our suppliers to be in line with our vision, mission and values. This strong involvement has made us a reliable partner.
We tackle projects with them, which ensure profitability in all links of the production chain, learning about the variables that affect our suppliers and their needs, applying our experience and committing to joint development. Our intention is that our suppliers become part and extension of the company, and grow in the same way that we do.
We work with our suppliers to guarantee the food safety and quality of our products. In this line, we have demanding systems for the approval and evaluation of suppliers of raw materials, containers and packaging, which include the evaluation of their products in industrial tests and the requirement for approval of on-site audits, to enable the supply of their products. In relation to our commitment to guarantee the ethical behaviour, integrity and responsible practices of our suppliers, we request their registration in the SEDEX platform and demand that they adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes the minimum criteria for behaviour in the areas of human and labour rights, quality and the environment, anti-corruption and ethical management, in line with our mission, vision and values, and in compliance with national and international regulations and the principles that govern our business activities.
Siro Group Supplier Code of Conduct
Cerealto Supplier Code of Conduct
As a socially responsible company, Cerealto has always been committed to responsible sourcing, including protecting animals. Even though we are a grain-based company; 99 percent of the ingredients in Cerealto have no animal products. The consumption of eggs from caged hens has decreased significantly in the last four years, almost 90% from 2019 to 2022, and Cerealto has the compromise to reduce it gradually in the coming years. All our productive and business activity is governed by law, ensuring that the company meets the highest standards, including our relationship with egg product suppliers, which represent less than 0.26% of the total raw materials used in 2022.
We are working toward reduce our purchase of eggs gradually for our operations globally, reducing 10% by 2023, 50% by 2024 and 100% by 2025 versus 2020.
Sustainability is a priority for Cerealto. Our entire value chain ensures food quality, ethics and integrity throughout the entire process, complying with every legal requirement established by Spanish and European regulations, both of which are the most demanding in the world in terms of animal welfare. We evaluate all our suppliers through these policies.
