At Nordzucker we work closely with our customers on sustainability topics, as we contribute to their efforts to sustainably source raw materials. Many of our suppliers work with guiding principles for sourcing and agriculture. One example is the Coca-Cola Company. In 2018 Nordzucker was featured in a lead article as our sugar beets are now fully third party verified according to the SAI FSA framework. Read the article here
“Nordzucker is a key supply partner, supplying sugar to the Coca-Cola system across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Their adoption and progress towards meeting the SAI standards -- now in all countries where they operate - has been outstanding.” Matt Swindall, Senior Global Procurement director of sweeteners, The Coca-Cola Company
At the beginning of 2015, Nordzucker was awarded the Unilever Sustainability Diploma in recognition of its high sustainability standards at two of our factories. The factories had followed the Unilever Sustainability Code, which is considered to be a top industry standard. This is a further step in the development of our sustainability strategy.

In 2014, Nordzucker was named the best supplier in the world for sustainability by Coca-Cola HBC (Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company). This award is highly prestigious, as it covers all sustainability categories.
Coca-Cola HBC is listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and is ranked second in the world among drinks manufacturers. The award inspires us to continue giving our best to increase our support for sustainable beet farming in Europe.
