Culture and values
A HUMANIST AND ENTREPRENEURIAL CULTURE
Savencia Fromage & Dairy consists of small scale companies, usually located within their milk production zones and united by a strong humanistic, family-based and entrepreneurial culture. We favor decentralized management that places operating subsidiaries at the heart of our development. Shared service entities are responsible for providing administrative, industrial and commercial synergies.
THE QUEST FOR SUSTAINED PERFORMANCE
Our shared total quality management approach focuses on satisfying our customers and respecting the expectations of other stakeholders. Through economic and social development, respect for people and the environment, the Group and its staff are committed to sustainable performance.
Our action principles and rules of conduct are included in an Ethical Charter, “The Group and its culture”, available in the main Group’s languages and provided to all employees.
This Ethical Charter underlines operating principles, ethics and behaviours that apply within each subsidiary of the Group and highlights the Ten Fundamental Principles of the U.N Global Compact.
- The U.N Global Compact
Since 2003, the Group is a signatory to the UN’s Global Compact scheme, and therefore committed to upholding to its ten fundamental principles in the areas of Human Rights, labour, environment and anti corruption. This is covered each year in the Group’s Progress Report.
