CSR AND GROWTH
CSR and growth go hand in hand
At Nordic Food Partners A/S, we acknowledge that CSR and growth go hand in hand. Knowing that our supply chain is often rooted in some of the poorest countries in the world, we have based our business on the strong belief that through development of organic food production and sustainability, we can contribute to poverty alleviation and a higher standard of living, particularly among farmers in 3rd countries.
Innovation that improves the farmers' standard of living
As pioneers in organic rice since more than a decade, we still actively seek to convert cooperatives of conventional farmers into organic and value-added production, replacing conventional cultivation.
Such conversion into organic cultivation we believe will generate greater earnings from production and increased biodiversity, which ultimately will create better living conditions for the farmers, their families, and the community of which they are a part of.
NFP Partner Projects
Hilltribe Organics is an institution which transfers knowledge of organic farming to the farmers and their families. The project aims to double the family income and create real and lasting social change for the Thai Hilltribe Community.

The activities and projects of AMRU RICE are aimed at improving farmers' income and livelihoods. The work is aimed purposefully on the sector's general promotion and development and the goal is to reap the full benefits of the country's "white gold" as a recognized international product.

Nordic Food Partners A/S supports society's general desire to reduce food waste.
We wish to fight unnecessary food waste, as food waste is a burden on the economy, but also on the environment and society.
We take an active part in minimizing food waste, which is one of the reasons why we offer a zip-lock function on our packaging.
We have inserted a zip-lock so that consumers can open and close the bag again and make sure that your food products will maintain the high quality through the total shelf life, without having to use all the contents at once.
We use sortable and recyclable plastic for this purpose in order to protect and preserve the planet.
Our latest initiative fighting food waste is a formalized agreement with the highly respected NGO, Danish Church Aid, about their sale of our by-products in their stores, from which any financial profit will go undiminished to the fight against poverty in developing countries.
