New Touton Sustainability report 2021-22 released !

“Managing risks is what we do, day in and day out. This year again, flexibility was of the essence. We dealt with the pandemic, freight, and geopolitical crisis. We also accelerated our investments within producing countries and into the sustainable and digital management of our supply chains. In the face of constant uncertainty, we must go beyond being simply good traders of cocoa, coffee, vanilla, and ingredients.” Said Patrick de Boussac, CEO of the Touton Group.

TOUTON SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 21 22 CSR prioritiesThe 2021-2022 Sustainability report highlights the three main priorities to guide the group’s overall Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): 
  1. Offering sustainable products
  2. Working side by side with producers
  3. Ensuring the integrity of our operations
Priorities are broken down into several goals, each supported by a set of key indicators to track progress and maintain transparency.
