Building trust within our community of stakeholders is fundamental to our company culture.

Since its origin, Diana Food has developed a business model that focuses on creating added value from vegetable and meat by-products and side streams. Therefore, sustainability has always been a fundamental element of our business model. We are committed to sharing value with all our stakeholders – suppliers, customers, consumers, employees and communities – as well as society and the environment.

Sustainability is positioned at the very heart of our strategy, exemplified in our efforts to foster responsible innovation and strive for responsible sourcing while minimizing our environmental footprint. This concept is embraced across our entire organization, further evidenced by our parent company. Since 2014, Diana Food has been part of the Symrise Group, a sustainability-award winning leader in taste solutions, nutrition, and scent and care. With Symrise, we have set the goal to operate climate-neutral by 2030.

Diana Food partners for good with key stakeholders and develops research on nutrition and functional ingredients.

Addressing UN Sustainable Development Goals through four key pillars:

Diana Food has structured its sustainability efforts around 4 pillars: Footprint, Innovation, Sourcing and Care. Our mandate isto foster this sustainability roadmap across every action that we take. 

Footprint
We minimize the environmental footprint of our facilities by continuously managing our energy and water consumption and valorizing our wastes. 

Innovation
We maximize the social and environmental impact of our products by assessing any new product development according to sustainability criteria.

 

Sourcing
We are committed to working in close collaboration with farmers and producers to fine-tune responsible and sustainable sourcing practices.

Care
We develop long-lasting, positive relationships with our employees and communities.

Footprint

Our objectives for 2025

-4% 

per year of water consumption per ton of finished product

-5.6% 

per year of GHG emissions per ton of finished product

100%

share of electricity from renewable sources

-4%

per year of waste per ton of finished product

Footprint in action: Fostering circular economy with a no-waste approach


This project aimed at decreasing the carbon footprint of our Berric, France plant through valorizing waste and production oversupply.

Three types of waste were initially identified as having potential: cooked meat, bones (raw and cooked), and filtration residues.

In collaboration with local stakeholders, we continuously look for additional valorization and new industrial applications for these three materials.

Innovation

Our objectives for 2025

>12%

of sales from new product development (relative to market launches in the past three years)

100%

of new products are assessed according to environmental criteria

Innovation in action: Eco-designing our taste solutions

Our integrated approach to production, which begins with raw material agronomy and extends to harvesting and product processing, has enabled Diana Food to develop two product ranges (powder and liquid concentrates) with a reduced environmental footprint. These products, both offering a superior experience for consumers, consume around 50% less natural resources than conventional products.

 

 

Sourcing: Our objectives 2025

100%

of our main suppliers are assessed according to sustainability criteria

100%

sustainable procurement of strategic agricultural raw materials

Sourcing in action: Partnering with producers - Organic & Fair Trade acerola

Our raw materials are the result of a virtuous cycle taking into account the planet and the people providing us with the best of nature.

This is why Diana Food, along with a key partner in Brazil, has recently launched a brand new organic and fair trade acerola powder that complies with the highest environmental and social standards. Both product certifications allow the consumer to know that they’re buying responsible products that have a positive impact on the environment and local communities.

Through our new organic & fair trade acerola, the whole value chain contributes and finances development projects for acerola growers –and their families- in Brazil!

 

Care: Our objectives 2025

<1.5

Care in action: Enhancing the well-being of our people in Ecuador

Engaging our collaborators and creating workplace wellbeing is an strategic element of our banana-transforming facility in Ecuador. 

Taking care of what matters the most to our collaborators contributes to achieving business goals, develops everyone's full potential, promotes social equality, and creates long-term relationships with local communities.
