Fresh & Saucy Foods is the first company in its sector to obtain the VCDO label
A few months ago, Fresh & Saucy was awarded the VCDO (Voka Charter Duurzaam Ontwerpen) label for having met 7 of the UN’s 17 sustainability goals for sustainable entrepreneurship. Objectives initially in the ethical values of Fresh & Saucy Foods but truly materialized and made measurable thanks to this program. To obtain the VCDO, our company had to carry out a whole series of actions which were presented to a jury of independent experts.
An industry first!
Fresh & Saucy Foods is the first company in its sector to obtain this label. The reason ? A constant dynamism and concrete sustainability objectives at the very center of our corporate vision: to undertake in a sustainable manner that respects the environment! Indeed, sustainability is one of our 6 points of commitment: quality, innovation, full services, partnership, speed and flexibility & sustainability.
The 17 UN goals for sustainability
Fresh & Saucy Foods has achieved 7 of the 17 goals of the UN plan. But what is the UN plan for sustainability? The UN action plan is based on the 5 Ps: Peace, Peoples, Planet, Prosperity and Partnership. For the next 15 years, the goals and sub-goals are there to encourage action in areas fundamental to humanity and the planet. If we can achieve all of the ambitions in the action plan, everyone’s lives will be greatly improved and our world will experience a positive transformation!
