          "Agrifirm has a Responsible Procurement policy in place, which was last updated in 2017. The approach is built on a generic risk assessment, specific risk assessments and active stakeholder involvement in those processes. The main objective behind this approach is for us to have a good understanding of the social and environmental conditions in our supply chain, ensure food safety and work on addressing these issues jointly with our suppliers. Our membership of SecureFeed and GMP+ helps us toavoid working with companies that are blacklisted and to evaluate suppliers regularly, usually on an annual basis."

How we assess the Forest 500

To ensure deforestation free supply chains, companies need to adopt and implement timebound and measurable policies for forest risk commodities.

All assessments use policies published on company websites, some links may have changed or been removed since the time of assessment.
