Lantmännen Unibake wishes to strengthen ties with suppliers. Work is currently underway to map strategic suppliers, their capabilities and their sustainability initiatives in order to set new targets for our value chain strategy.
To ensure suppliers meet our requirements, we have a process in place for evaluating suppliers. A risk score identifies those suppliers that are high risk, based on, for example, their country or category of operation and performance track record. This evaluation results in an audit plan, where audits are conducted by our own people or by third party auditors.
We want our almost 800 suppliers to be certified according to a standard recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), preferably the British Retail Consortium (BRC) standard.
We also monitor compliance with the Lantmännen Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC). Our goal is that 95% of suppliers with annual orders above SEK 1 million sign the SCoC. The current compliance rate is 92 %.
