Frozen food distributor Central Foods – supplier of the Golden Valley Foods range to takeaways and fast food outlets - has become one of tens of thousands of companies that use Sedex to continuously improve their responsible sourcing programmes.
The business has recently joined the global membership organisation which is dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practices across global supply chains.
Sedex helps companies manage responsible sourcing in their supply chain to help protect people’s working conditions and their environment. It provides one of the world’s largest collaborative platforms for sharing responsible sourcing data about supply chains, and its tools and services are used by more than 55,000 members in over 180 countries to support continuous improvement in their responsible sourcing programmes.
“Responsible sourcing is all about being aware of the impact our business has on the world around us,” said Gordon Lauder, MD of Central Foods. “Being a Sedex member will support us to be as responsible a business as possible.
“Joining this well-regarded global membership organisation demonstrates our real commitment to corporate social responsibility.”
