Krispy Kreme

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING OF OUR PRODUCTS

We are focused on building responsible partnerships with all our suppliers to ensure raw materials and products are sourced in a sustainable way.

Sourcing of Raw Materials

Our coffee is ethically sourced and Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means we meet rigorous environmental and social standards. We only buy top quality beans and pay a fair price for them, purchasing all of our coffees at more than Fairtrade base price. Much of the coffee is purchased directly from the farm cooperatives using the expertise of our coffee roaster.

PALM OIL

We are very proud to be one of the first high street retailers to achieve the RSPO Supply Chain Certification Standard in 2017. We understand the need to demonstrate responsibility in the area of Palm Oil and it has been a key focus of ours.

Animal Welfare and Provenance

We are committed to working with our suppliers to ensure the highest standards of animal welfare throughout our supply chain. We only source 100% free range eggs for our doughnut mix in the UK and Ireland. Where possible, we buy our raw materials from British and Irish farmers throughout the year, to ensure we are supporting local farming communities and reducing our carbon footprint.

Action on Modern Slavery 

We appreciate the importance of taking action to combat all aspects of modern slavery. Krispy Kreme has HR policies to ensure compliance with relevant legislation concerning rights at work. We are also working on a new IT system to further strengthen our auditing capability in this area. Additionally, no person below the minimum legal age shall be employed and no one under the age of 18 will be employed where specific workplace conditions apply (nightshift, machinery). We encourage colleagues to report any activity they believe to be in breach of its policies and unlawful.
