Sustainable sourcing

we work on the ground

More than 30% of Spanish lands are destined for agricultural use, which makes their management a key aspect for the conservation of natural heritage

We work with farmers and agri food companies in the elaboration of Sustainable Sourcing Guides and Protocols.

Our land stewardship network involves approx. 7.500 hectares in 5 Spanish regions. We work on the ground with farming systems like vineyards, olive, almond and pistachio trees, and with different cereal and horticultural crops. We support extensive farming systems such as dehesas but we also work to improve the sustainability of the dairy industry.

INITIATIVES

We create alliances and promote innovation to ensure conservation and development

Sustainability is a shared responsibility and the conservation of our natural heritage involves finding benefits for all stakeholders living in side by side.

Responsible policies

Nestle’s Responsible Sourcing program for vegetables is intended to reduce the impact of agricultural practices on the environment within Nestlé’s processed vegetables supply chain.

We are a Nestlé’s strategic partner for the implementation of the Nestle’s Responsible Sourcing program for the processed vegetables supply chain in Europe, North Africa and Middle East.

Agri food standards

We design new environmental criteria – to differentiate levels – for PDO (protected designation of origin) and the PGI (protected geographical indication) in the Valencian Community.

Internal Protocols

With Calidad Pascual we have worked out 35 agri-environmental criteria to be part of the company’s protocol for dairy sourcing, implemented in 100% of their supplier farms since 2018.

Furthermore, we have trained the technicians to implement the criteria. The participants of this training highlighted how important is to integrate sustainability in the business strategy on several fronts as the environmental need or as answer to clients and consumers demands.
