Faced with these responsibilities, Tulip focuses on health, environmental and social issues.
We know our consumers care about the health of their families. Therefore, fat and salt content is a key consideration in every new product. Over the years, Tulip has significantly reduced the salt level in many of our products. This is done gradually because salt is an important ingredient in ensuring the quality and shelf life of our products.
As a major manufacturing company, Tulip is aware of its environmental footprint. We are continuously striving to reduce our CO2 emissions and consumption of other resources such as water and electricity. In our factories, we have introduced several improvements which have reduced consumption considerably.
Tulip has also changed its waste management procedures. Today, meat waste from our factories is converted into bio-fuel which contributes to eco-friendly energy for Danish households.
To ensure a motivated workforce, Tulip regularly conducts employee satisfaction surveys. We recognize that both physical and psychological aspects need to be addressed to improve working conditions. We also request our distributors to sign a Code of Conduct which contains standards concerning e.g. environmental responsibilities and working conditions.
