Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR at Kudos Blends is reflected in our commitment to ethical and sustainable business practices. This means we take account of the social, economic and environmental impact of our activities.

There are four main strands within our CSR approach:

1. Environmental sustainability

We’re committed to reducing our direct impact on the environment by actively managing our waste, emissions and consumption of natural resources. We have approved suppliers for the responsible disposal of all waste, including any chemical and hazardous waste, and we recycle where possible.  The individual components of all finished product packaging are 100% recyclable.  All of our palm oil products are purchased from certified sources and we have an RSPO membership; non-certified palm derivatives are not permitted on site.

2. Workplace wellbeing

We create a workplace that encourages respect, diversity and equal opportunities for all. We actively encourage professional development through our learning programmes and support employee health and wellbeing. We hold the Investors in People award, demonstrating our high standards in supporting employees.

3. Marketplace mission

We understand that consumers want to know what is in their food products. Transparency is increasingly being demanded surrounding how ingredients have been produced and the implications for people and the planet. At Kudos Blends, our impact extends from the raw materials we source right through to the product’s effect on the end consumer. Utilising our position in the value chain, we examine impacts from our supply base through to our manufacturing processes and on to the final product, developing solutions that enable us to consistently deliver high-quality, healthier, and more sustainable consumer products. As the world leader in bespoke leavening agents, we are well-positioned to support our customer’s sustainability ambitions through our holistic approach.

4. Community responsibility

To play a positive role in society, we’ve built a culture that promotes employee volunteering, skills matching and fundraising. We actively support local businesses and the communities in which we operate.
