Our purpose is to bring happiness with every bite.
It’s a commitment shared by every pladis colleague, all around the world.
Family and ideas have always been our ingredients. Our founding families believed biscuits and chocolates could bring moments of happiness to the world. Their ideas have stood the test of time. Their spirit continues to inspire our future. It’s in the care and the craft we bake into biscuits and chocolates that have been loved for generations. And it’s in the fresh ideas, the new twists, flavours and textures we add to old and new favourites.
Crafted with care
We partner with farmers who share our vision. Together we source, grow, harvest, bake and bring you the snacks you love, while helping protect our planet. Some of our ingredients travel the world before they reach us. So, it’s essential that we know where they originated and the conditions in which they were grown and transported.
Wherever we can we source the best ingredients locally. This helps us support local farmers and limits carbon emissions caused by transportation. We’ve built partnerships with local wheat farmers to give us access to consistent, high-quality flour that makes our biscuits unique.
Where we can’t source locally, we aim for 100% traceability. It’s important for us to know where these ingredients come from and the conditions in which they’re grown and harvested. For pladis this is most important for palm oil and cocoa beans.
With our partners we’re committed to making 100% of our plastic packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable. We’re reducing packaging through smarter design and the adoption of more sustainable materials to increase the percentage of recycled content. We also label packaging to facilitate recyclability.
We’re actively reducing our direct CO2 emissions and engaging with key suppliers on reducing their emissions. We’re reducing energy consumption, water usage and waste in our factories. We’re also purchasing 100% of renewable electricity in markets where it’s widely available.
