Our supply chains and operations are truly global. Corporate Social Responsibility is therefore a fundamental component of our strategy. We want to grow, but must do so sustainably, minimising our impact on the environment and having a positive impact on our communities and supply chains.
Our efforts are focused on three pillars:
- Climate Change & The Environment
- Fair Partner & Good Employer
- Health & Wellbeing
Cross functional work streams ensure we continue to improve across each of these pillars, through the monitoring of progress and the setting of targets, for example, we have recently committed to only using cage-free eggs (shell, liquid & ingredients) across our entire business by 2025.
We also operate separate Seafood Sustainability, Ethical Trading, Packaging and Energy working groups.
We also seek to engage every colleague positively in the actions we take to advance our CSR position and call on all colleagues to make a difference whatever their role.
We seek outside counsel in our corporate responsibility efforts, learning from and collaborating with social and environmental leaders and organisations to ensure we have the most up-to-date information and understand issues as deeply as possible.

Princes Supply Chain Map
As part of our commitment to supply chain transparency we are pleased to publish details of our Tier 1 (direct) suppliers for packaging and ingredients, as well as finished goods. We also continue to champion gender equality and mapping vulnerable workers within our supply chain, so are delighted to share data on gender and temporary/agency workers. This is in addition to visibility of where an active trade union and/or worker committee exists.
In 2015 the United Nations approved 17 objectives, broken down into 169 targets, to be reached by 2030 – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Attaining these goals is not the responsibility of one organisation but a shared global challenge for government, private sector, civil society and consumers.
There are eight specific goals that are particularly pertinent to our business activities and sphere of influence, where we can make a real contribution. However every goal is of relevance to Princes and we continually assess how we can contribute.
