Sustainability guidance for food suppliers

Co-op and sustainability

As the world continues to change in ways that are having a direct impact on our food system, it’s more important than ever that we take action to protect our planet and the people we share it with.

Sustainability is a strategic priority for Co-op and everyone has an important role to play in our sustainability journey.

Our supply base is key to the delivery of many of our commitments. It’s important that you understand our priorities and receive support from us to help deliver them. We appreciate that you have your own ambitious targets and commitments towards sustainability.

Co-operation is key to achieving our shared ambitions. To help you further, we’ve created a guide to support our suppliers with our sustainability agenda. It contains information about Co-op’s sustainability priorities, current positions, asks of suppliers and a look at what’s coming next.

What we need from you

Please familiarise yourself with our guidance and asks of suppliers. Please reach out to your category teams if you have any questions.

The work we all do across the Sustainability agenda is vital for Co-op to achieve its vision of a fairer world. Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to continue working with you on this agenda.

Technical, Agriculture and Commercial Operations Director at Co-op
