Nestlé today announced that it would disclose the list of suppliers alongside a variety of data of its 15 priority commodities, the first disclosure of its kind in the industry. This will accelerate the company’s journey to reach full supply chain transparency. These commodities cover 95 percent of the company’s annual sourcing of raw materials.

“Consumers want to know what is in their food and where it comes from. Therefore, transparency in our supply chains is essential, and we will continue to lead in this area. Following the public disclosure of our palm oil and pulp and paper supply chains last year, we are now pleased to release supply chain information for soya, meat (beef, pork, veal, lamb/mutton)1, hazelnuts and vanilla,” said Magdi Batato, Executive Vice President, Head of Operations, Nestlé.

“By mid-2019, we will also publish the supply chain information for our other priority commodities, which include seafood, coconut, vegetables, spices, coffee, cocoa, dairy, poultry2, eggs3, cereals and sugar,” he added.

The disclosure includes the list of direct (tier 1) suppliers, upstream locations and country of origins as well as total volume sourced for each commodity.
