CSR and growth go hand in hand
At Nordic Food Partners A/S, we believe that CSR and growth go hand in hand. Therefore, it is our business philosophy that, through the development of ecology and sustainability, we create a company that is good for the various societies we are a part of and thus good for the world.
Innovation that improves the farmers' standard of living
We innovate through our efforts towards our partners, which contributes to the farmers in exporting countries switching from conventional production to organic production. An approach that both meets the growing demand for organic food and simultaneously improves the farmers' standard of living.
With an increased focus on partner projects in interdisciplinary collaborations, we mainly focus on better working conditions, a greater return on the products and increased biodiversity, which ultimately create better living conditions for the farmer, his family, and the community they are part of.
