Objectives of Raisio Group's Responsibility Programme 2016-2018

In its Responsibility Programme, Raisio has grouped its objectives under three material themes. 

Sustainable food chain 2016-2018

  • We will further develop the responsible purchasing of our key raw materials. The raw materials Raisio uses the most are grain, rapeseed and sugar.

  • We continue to purchase ProTerra or RTRS certified soy.
