Delivering sustainably

The world’s population is expected to grow by 2 billion in 2050. That's a lot of people for the planet to support.

At Eurest, we’re serious about sustaining our resources. We want to do our bit to secure the future and enhance the wellbeing of millions, whether that’s on the ground for our clients, or throughout our supply chain.

Nurturing the environment is central to our approach: we manage essential resources carefully, source sustainably, and we’re ruthless about reducing waste.

Supporting people is just as important. We deliver the highest levels of safety and take an active role in creating healthier food for healthier lives.

Finally, we put our reach to work, using our purchasing power for good and working with our suppliers to create targeted actions plans. It’s all about leveraging our scale to improve health and happiness wherever and however we can.
