Nestlé speeds up efforts towards full supply chain transparency

Nestlé plans to disclose the list of suppliers alongside a variety of data of its 15 priority commodities, accelerating its move to full supply chain transparency.

The commodities cover 95 per cent of the company’s annual sourcing of raw materials.

“Consumers want to know what is in their food and where it comes from. Therefore, transparency in our supply chains is essential,” said Magdi Batato, executive vice president, head of operations.

“Following the public disclosure of our palm oil and pulp and paper supply chains last year, we are now pleased to release supply chain information for soya, meat (beef, pork, veal, lamb/mutton)1, hazelnuts and vanilla.

“By mid-2019, we will also publish the supply chain information for our other priority commodities, which include seafood, coconut, vegetables, spices, coffee, cocoa, dairy, poultry, eggs, cereals and sugar,” he said.
