Our commitments
for generations to come

To embed sustainability in everything we do and foster a company culture that leads to sustainable behaviour and thinking.

At Zeelandia, we believe in the philosophy of permanently sustainable businesses. In other words, we believe that to be truly successful we need to create value for our stakeholders and have a positive long-term impact on society and the environment. That’s what drives us, every single day.

Of course, we can’t do this alone. That’s why we work with our stakeholders and supply chain partners. Our goal is to embed our social responsibilities in the entire value chain. From raw materials, via suppliers and farmers, to our own production process, our customers, and consumers.

Our CSR priorities cover a wide range of environmental and social dimensions, clustered in the two key pillars of our CSR efforts:

  • Better for People (consumers, employees, and communities)
  • Better for the Planet (clean energy and zero waste)

Better for People

We are a people company. We care about the well-being of every life we touch. Whether it's our employees, our customers or the communities we live and operate in.

<span><strong>Employees </strong></span>

We care for our people, our most valued asset, through a safe and supportive working environment that boosts their professional and personal development.


We promote consumers' well-being through innovation, enabling our customers to produce a wide variety of healthier bakery products.


We are committed to supporting and serving the communities where we live and work.                                                                                                                               

Better for Planet

Minimizing our environmental footprint requires urgent action. Whatever the challenge we face or the solution we come up with: our goal is to serve the interests of bakers, consumers and the planet.


We are committed to doing our fair share in combating climate change, with a special focus on renewable electricity and transport efficiency.


From food and non-food waste to sustainable packaging solutions: our ambition is to further reduce waste, sort it and reuse it as much as possible.


Through our choice of supply partners, ingredients and materials, we aim to reduce our CO2 footprint and address issues such as biodiversity and deforestation.             

We made great progress in 2021

Every year, we commit to improving our performance in areas such as CO2 reduction, energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy and local raw materials, as well as the health and safety of our employees, and support for our local communities. Other ambitions focus on the years ahead. For example, our goal is to achieve a 55% reduction in CO2 emissions (scope 2)* by 2030.

You can read more about our year-on-year improvements and future goals in our CSR Report 2021.

*Scope 2 emissions are indirect greenhouse gas emissions associated with the purchase of electricity, steam, heat, or cooling.
