1-2-Taste as supplier of Sustainably Sourced Ingredients

When sourcing ingredients, food manufacturers increasingly respond to the wider societal and stakeholder interests in sustainability. The United Nations have declared Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. Many of the UN SDGs are applicable to the food production chain. 1-2-Taste wants to help food manufacturers to contribute to these SDG goals: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Gender Equality, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Reduced Inequality, Responsible Consumption and Production and Climate Action. Concretely, you can find many sustainably produced and sourced ingredients on 1-2-Taste.

1-2-Taste also partners with Solidaridad and ProFound to create transparent and fair supply chains that deliver sustainable and regenerative food ingredients. This provides impactful market opportunities for SMEs, smallholder farmers, indigenous people, women and youth.

At 1-2-Taste you can directly source your sustainable and responsible ingredients online from many suppliers that feature sustainable ingredients.

Sustainability & Traceability

Every step in the supply chain

Sustainability and Traceability go hand-in-hand, and make good business sense: better insight will help build a more resilient supply chain, remove inefficiencies, create competitive advantages, and better manage potential risks. This in turn stimulates innovation and increase productivity, while meeting customer concerns and future supplies.

SUSTAINABLE CROPS AND LIVELIHOODS

Sustainability requires sourcing from farmers, collectors and SMEs  through more direct and equal buyer-supplier relationships and collaboration throughout the supply chain. A good product deserves a price that covers the cost of shifting to regenerative agricultural practices, allows for decent farmer and collector livelihoods, and for assuring product quality and safety.

Food ingredient production creates many by-products, which will go to waste in many cases. Upcycling these streams of by-products immediately reduces waste. Equally important, these upcycled ingredients are great contributors in the formulation of food products in many application areas.
