25th November 2019

“The goal of EDEKA is to identify the environmental and social procurement risks of agricultural commodities and to deduce what can be done to reduce or eliminate these risks. In the future, we will be able to use the existing knowledge and worldwide network of SAI Platform.”

Rolf Lange, Head of Corporate Communications, EDEKA AG

EDEKA is one of the leading food retailers in Germany with about 11.300 supermarkets, including those of its subsidiary Netto Marken-Discount. As a cooperative, the group is owned by supermarket owners across Germany.

EDEKA has a long track record of working in partnership with the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) to make its’ supply chains more sustainable. This partnership aims to identify environmental and social risks, so that appropriate measures can be taken to address them. EDEKA joins SAI Platform in support of its efforts to improve the sustainability of agricultural production in a durable and systematic way.

We welcome EDEKA’s decision to be the first German food retailer to connect with SAI Platform”, says Dr. Marina Beermann, who leads the partnership from the WWF-side.

This will help to exchange knowledge, identify weaknesses and provide remedies to improve on-farm performance.
