Staay Food Group is contributing to a more sustainable and healthier world on a number of levels. On a daily basis, we look at where we could improve as well as at what the world around us is asking of us. This is how we work towards a healthier life with optimal availability of healthy, fresh and safe food.

Below are some of the measures we have taken, broken down into our three strategic sustainability pillars.

Investing in sustainable growing

  • We are investing in efficient and locally based hydroponic cultivation and vertical farming
  • Fast (international) roll-out of Planet Proof sustainable cultivation
  • We select strong growers who are willing and able to invest in sustainability and food safety

Lowering the CO2 footprint

  • In 2022, we started calculating our CO2 footprints with the aim of reducing them systematically (field-to-shelf).
  • We will be offsetting emissions in order to offer Climate Neutral Certified products
  • We are installing solar panels at our sites wherever possible
  • We have introduced LNG trucks in our fleet in order to lower noise and particulate emissions

Ensure safe and healthy food

  • We are partners of SIFAV (Sustainability Initiative Fruit and Vegetables) to achieve a greater focus on sustainability in the global supply chain
  • We have joined the compliance platform Agriplace with a view to further promote transparency, traceability and food safety
  • We are partners of EU School Fruit, helping children eat healthier
  • We are partners of the ‘Geef Kleur Door’ campaign, aimed at promoting healthy eating in the Netherlands
  • We work in collaboration with the food bank
