Doing business the right way

Focus area

Integrity is one of our core values – doing the right thing is our promise to our people, consumers and strategic partners and is critical to our long-term success.

As our company evolves, we continue to improve on our internal processes and approach to responsible business. Building on these processes, an area of particular focus has been pro-active engagement across our broader industry and value chain. Responsible sourcing and responsible marketing continue to be priorities.

Review of supply chain

In FY20 we undertook a detailed review of our supply chain, to ensure that throughout our value chain we are upholding our commitment to sustainability and ethical business. 

Our review concluded with a number of governance initiatives, including strengthened policies and standards for our company and our suppliers and training for our employees and farmers. 

Furthermore, to strengthen our long-term commitment to sustainable packaging, we recently became a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant, committing to meet Australia’s 2025 National Packaging Targets.

Responsible marketing

Our approach to marketing infant nutrition aligns to the core principle that we support breastfeeding as the primary form of infant nutrition. We have developed a premium, high quality range of infant nutrition products to provide parents an alternative when breastfeeding is not an option.

We are a signatory to the Marketing in Australia of Infant Formula: Manufacturers and Importers Agreement (MAIF Agreement). 

We are also a member of the Infant Nutrition Council, which represents the major manufacturers and marketers of infant formula in Australia and New Zealand.
