We assume responsibility in accordance with our sustainability strategy and the goals formulated therein. Our determination, objective and duty is to optimise our environmental impact, conduct our business in a socially responsible way, and adhere to ethical practices and transparency in our management practices. Keeping the whole value chain and the associated interdependencies with our partners in view, we are working tirelessly to become better together.
Our sustainability strategy
Our strategy "The ORIOR Responsibility" is the result of a detailed materiality process that we conducted in 2018, and in which we formulated targets until 2025. The strategic wheel encompasses nine areas of activity in the spheres of Product responsibility, Social responsibility and Environmental responsibility. It is through measures in these areas of activity that we see our contribution towards sustainable development.
Correspondingly, we want to permanently improve and to report on our goals, projects, measures and progress in a transparent and comparable manner. For this purpose, we publish a sustainability report in accordance with the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) annually.
Our value chain
In addition to our own employees, the involvement of both our upstream and downstream partners in the value chain play an important role in our success and in implementing our sustainability strategy. That is because, as a Swiss Food & Beverage group, we only handle a specific part of thevalue chain.
We purchase raw materials and semi-finished products from our suppliers, which we then process and turn into premium specialities at our sites. We also procure a small amount of finished retail items, which we resell through our channels. ORIOR’s customers include retailers, specialist dealers and the food service sector. Via our own online shops, factory outlets and to-go-stalls we also sell directly to consumers. The graphic provides a corresponding overview of our value chain.
Excellence in Food rests not only on our superb craftsmanship and the recipes and production processes, but also on the raw materials we use.
We are well aware of our environmental impact. Astute management of resources is a top priority at the Group level and at every centre of competence.
Dedicated and entrepreneurial employees who make things happen, conduct themselves respectfully and assume responsibility are key to our success. We are committed to good working conditions, and providing attractive job and development opportunities.
