OUR MAIN PROJECTS
Responsible sourcing policy
At MONIN we are working closely with our supplying partners for safe and responsible procurement:
- We undertake quality audits with our strategic suppliers, every year, to ensure food safety and management systems are at the highest level.
- In 2019 we upgraded our supplier code to meet higher CSR requirements and are collaborating with our partners to support its implementation.
In 2018, we invested in our first integrated fruit plantation for the production and transformation of organic fruits, that will be used in our recipes when available. Additionally, this culture lab is aimed at regenerating nature and increasing biodiversity through sustainable farming practices: seedling cover, tree hedges, solar energy, etc…
Packaging: alternatives to plastic
While the majority of our products are bottled in MONIN iconic glass bottle, we also use smaller proportion of plastic material to pack our syrups when requested by customers, and for other products such as Le Fruit, La Sauce or Le Frappé de MONIN. To reduce the environmental impacts of those plastic packaging, we are currently exploring alternatives, including the use of recycled PET.
