Growing & Sourcing

Nordzucker uses a wide network of growers and suppliers. To drive sustainable improvements throughout this supply chain, we work in partnership with our growers and suppliers to raise awareness of best practice and ensure that they are meeting the requirements of our Code of Conduct. We do this by sharing our expertise, and carrying out regular audits.
