What are your sustainable initiatives?

At Hoogwegt, we understand that the dairy industry is working towards a low-carbon industry that delivers healthy, nourishing protein sources sustainably. We take our role in this industry seriously. Our financial, commercial, and operational success as a company depends on our ability to help shape a more responsible, safer, lower-impact industry. 

Our unique character
We believe that sustainable growth goes hand in hand with responsible business operations. Our financial, commercial, and operational success as a company depends on our ability to help shape a more responsible, safer, lower-impact industry. As such, we see it as a key responsibility to assure that reduction of carbon footprint, and maintaining high food safety and quality standards are met for the products that we source and supply. 

As a market leader, at Hoogwegt we can utilize our scale, our knowledge, and our unrivaled supplier and customer base to embed sustainability in our industry. And we can leverage our extensive network of farmers, ingredient manufacturers, and food industry leaders to activate sustainable change at critical points in the value chain. That is why we are pursuing a robust, customer-driven sustainability strategy built on four key pillars: 

  • Environmental impact, 
  • Food safety,
  • Our people and
  • Our communities.

Through this targeted approach, we can help shape a more informed, empowered, and sustainable industry in the years ahead.

Our sustainability ambitions on all four pillars are:
Environmental impact: We aim to provide Hoogwegt customers with an extensive range of carbon-neutral dairy options.

Food safety: By mid-2023, we aim to have a best-in-class, globalized food safety assessment program in place, with all our global locations audited against Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards.

Our people: By reaching out and investing in our communities, we can offer people from all backgrounds opportunities to grow and to contribute to a sustainable dairy future.

Our communities: As a leading multinational organization with a global reach, Hoogwegt will continue to make a positive difference in the communities where we operate, and for society at large.
