Midsona takes responsibility through the entire value chain by cooperating with our suppliers in such areas as quality, safe raw materials and products, environment, human rights, sound competitive conditions and ethical businesses.
Through the Supplier Code of Conduct, Midsona can set higher requirements at the supplier level and improve important processes, which in turn contributes to the Group's sustainability work being able to be conducted in a successful manner. Midsona's supplier inspections build on close relationships with our suppliers and are one of the most important tools to be able to place clear requirements on their work environment and environmental impact.
For example, Midsona is mapping, approving and following up all of its own suppliers in order to:
- obtain an overview of whether or not they conduct their work in a sustainable manner in terms of controls, environment, emissions, personnel, etc
- check that they have signed the Supplier Code of Conduct
- get an impression of which of our suppliers work with the ISO 20400 framework for sustainable procurement/purchasing or certifications, such as RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil), MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) regarding fish oil or GME Free (Genetically Modified Organisms) regarding food
The Supplier Code of Conduct is a fundamental part of our procurement documentation as has since 2018 been included as a part of new agreements and existing agreements in renegotiations.
