Goodman Fielder

Food manufacturer Goodman Fielder has launched sustainability strategy “Better Together,” designed to help embed sustainability across the business, culture, brands and products. 

Developed to support global efforts to deliver the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, the “Better Together” strategy includes nine goals with the intent to: 

  • Reach net zero emissions by 2040 
  • Incorporate 100 per cent recyclable packaging by 2025 
  • Meaningfully improve the nutritional value of its products by 2025 
  • Use 100 per cent sustainable packaging materials by 2030 
  • Operate on 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2025 
  • Reach 40 million with its sustainability message by 2030 
  • Halve food waste by 2030 
  • Use 100 per cent sustainably sourced ingredients by 2030 
  • Develop a diversity, inclusion and Indigenous recognition plan in 2021. 

“Our products touch millions of people everyday and we are committed to using that reach as a force for good. We are thrilled to launch ‘Better Together’, an important milestone for Goodman Fielder,” Goodman Fielder Australia joint managing director Kinda Grange said. 

“By driving progress against our four key focus areas of better products, better planet, better business and better communities, this strategy will provide us with a pathway to living our purpose and ensuring food is a force for good. 

“We’re excited to deliver local solutions to global challenges, turn our bold ambition into action and continue to make a difference. We know that by working together, we can make everyday food better for everyone.”  

To meet the new goals, Goodman Fielder will launch a series of programs and initiatives this year including: 

  • Move to 100 per cent renewable electricity in Australia and New Zealand, more than halving greenhouse gas emissions from operations and providing a pathway for net zero emissions 
  • Improve the Health Star rating of 35M loaves of bread 
  • Replace 100 tonnes of virgin plastic with recycled content 
  • Coordinate a soft plastic recycling campaign with other 1,000 Australian schools 
  • Eliminate PVC from retail packaging across Australia and New Zealand. 

The “Better Together” strategy showcases Goodman Fielders’ recent sustainability achievements, such as reducing food waste in its bakeries by up to 90 per cent in the last 18 months. It has also helped customers recover 240 tonnes of food waste each month and donated over 1.5M meals annually, as well as reaching 280,000 households with Pampas “re-pie-cling” cookbook with ideas for up-cycling leftovers. 

In the sustainable packaging space, Goodman Fielder has replaced 100 tonnes of problematic PVC and PET (including 30 per cent recycled content) and removed 185 tonnes of plastic and 100 tonnes of cardboard from its packaging.
