Nordzucker demands the highest quality from its own products and services, and therefore also expects these demands to be satisfied by its suppliers. Our business relationships are therefore subject to continuous scrutiny, and we regularly re-evaluate our suppliers using strategic and operative aspects as the benchmarks. The most important elements of the strategic criteria are economic aspects, the market situation and quality and environmental management. The operative evaluation criteria are based on every day experience and compared to statistical calculations. The information gained in this way is used by us to develop measures aimed at continuous improvement.
