Sustainability & ethical commitment
Our Corporate philosophy, included in the claim â€śNourish your healthâ€ť,
has a commitment to consumers: assisting them from childhood
to adulthood, being also an efficient support to life quality.
CONSUMERSâ€™ HEALTH DEPENDS
UPON THEIR NUTRITION, AS WELL AS THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY LIVE:
thatâ€™s why the Group is committed to make the company
an example of environmental sustainability,
by seeking to constantly improve upon every production process,
from the selection of raw materials to the realization
of eco-friendly packaging materials.
We pay serious attention to organic high-quality raw material selection.
We prefer raw ingredients that could promote healthy and functional aspects
of finished product, whole-wheat flour for fiber content that helps intestinal functions,
different varieties of cereals for the importance of a varied and balanced diet,
extracts for their nutrients content, precious oils and fruit.
In our recipes, we only use natural raw materials
and we do not use colouring agents, preservatives,
hydrogenated fats and GMO.
Short production chain and fair-trade
Our company established a guaranteed and certified short production chain for flour supplying. A complete traceability of products from the field to the shelf.
In addition, we have chosen to work with suppliers who are affiliated with WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization) circuit, or rather with organizations that are able of organizing, managing and certifying distribution chains that are fair and show solidarity towards the producers.
These organizations build equal and continuous relationships with producers, by ensuring equal prices, advanced financing and support for development projects.
Recyclable packaging materials and waste management
MangiarsanoGerminal Group thinks that sustainability and transparency are sources of strength: thanks to compostable packaging materials as polypropylene and cartons, we assure 100% recyclability of packaging.
Environmental protection plans and ecological problems are making recycling waste product increasingly necessary in order to recover raw materials like paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, thus providing for significant energy savings and preventing the materials themselves from ending up in landfills
Electricity from sustainable sources
We are dedicated to use clean and renewable
as much as possible in order
to costrain the use of
traditional energy sources
and to reduce the atmospheric
emissions of harmful
substances derived from
the processing of fossil
fuels, such as coal, oil
and their derivatives.

We guarantee that each product respects environment; this is ensured by GREENER , the certified energy from renewable sources that drives the Company.
