The ORIOR responsibility: GRI Sustainability Report published
  • Third ORIOR Sustainability Report published.
  • Sustainability confirmed and further strengthened as a strategic pillar within the ORIOR Strategy 2025.
  • All Swiss competence centres switched over to eco-friendly hydroelectricity.
  • Sustainability goal achievement now even more strongly weighted in variable executive remuneration.
  • Code of Conduct comprehensively revised.

The internationally active Swiss Food & Beverage group ORIOR presents its third sustainability report. The GRI-compliant report for 2020 provides detailed and comprehensive information about the Swiss competence centres' projects, progress and challenges within the “The ORIOR Responsibility” strategic pillar. At the same time, ORIOR is announcing the publication of its revised Code of Conduct and its decision to switch over all of its Swiss competence centres to eco-friendly hydroelectricity. This clearly demonstrates ORIOR's commitment and willingness to continue working on improvements throughout all of its areas of activity and to keep investing in progress.


Daniel Lutz, CEO of the ORIOR Group: “The effects of the pandemic also left their mark on our sustainability efforts. Although we did not succeed in realising positive developments in all our areas of activity, we were able to make some solid progress, give important impetus, and initiate projects for future improvements. We view sustainability as the basis for Excellence in Food, a prerequisite and opportunity to differentiate ourselves, and as our responsibility. We have now linked our commitment in this area to the short-term and long-term variable remuneration for top management. My sincere thanks go to each and every employee who is committed to living out sustainability in small and larger ways and who makes a valuable contribution to our future through their daily actions – both at work and in their private lives. Our customers, partners and our consumers also deserve a big thank you as we can only make true and lasting progress if all the stakeholders involved are united in living out their commitment to sustainability.”
