Treatt has joined the Sustainable Agriculture Industry Platform to expand safe and responsible agricultural practices in South America.
Joining in collaboration with its lemon oil partner F.G.F Trapani, Treatt will expand SAI Platform’s sustainable best practices into Argentina and Peru for the remainder of this year and into 2022.
As a member of SAI Platform, Treatt will continue to champion good working conditions for employees and promoting responsible and sustainable farming.
Craig Landles, global lead citrus buyer at Treatt, explains, “Sustainability has never been such an important factor in how businesses are scrutinized by customers, investors, employees and society as a whole. At Treatt, sustainability is a core focus and we are committed to enhancing our sustainability responsibilities across the group.
Landles contuines, “Treatt and F.G.F Trapani have the perfect partnership to support our customers’ sustainability requirements. We can instill best farm practice to others—it is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference for the right moral reasons. It is something Treatt is very passionate about as a business and we are very proud to be so.
“Joining the SAI platform is a significant step forward and we are proud to become a member. We will be in a stronger position to share best practice knowledge, as well as embed and implement sustainable practices in our supply chain as a result.”
