Code of Conduct and Policies

We're committed to the highest standards of corporate governance and leadership.


 

Code of Business Conduct and Policies

We want to be the world’s most trusted source of dairy nutrition. And to get there, we need to earn this trust from all our stakeholders – from our farmer shareholders to our employees, and from our customers to our consumers. We can only achieve this if we all do what’s right, every day, everywhere across our Co-operative.

The Way We Work (Code of Business Conduct)

Our Code of Business Conduct helps us make the right decisions at work. The code reflects our values, outlines expected behaviour and conduct and translates our commitments into actions that guide our daily activities as indicated in our Group Policies.
