With seven billion people on our planet, the earth’s resources are under immense strain. We are living in a world where temperatures are rising, water is scarce, expensive energy, food supplies uncertain and the gap between rich and poor increasing. Continental Bakeries will not close its eyes to the problems the world faces. We believe that business must be part of the solution. Profitable sustainable growth is the only acceptable business model.
Continental Bakeries will consistently develop and improve through products creating daily affordable moments of wellbeing and delight, whilst improving nutritional value of our products, reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact.
In order to realize this, we have integrated sustainability into our strategy, products and innovation. Our purpose as a business is about contributing to a world where it is commonplace for businesses to take the wellbeing of individuals as well as the natural limits of the planet into account:
