Sustainability Practice in Use
In late 2017, Nomad established a new set of principles for their sustainability programme, including refreshed objectives for sustainable agriculture.
To meet these objectives, Nomad intends to:
- Evolve in-house agricultural R&D facility to focus on the sustainability agenda, including but not limited to breeding pea varieties;
- Measure existing best practices by introducing the FSA;
- Evaluate the potential for purchased vegetables to be subject to the FSA;
- Participate in industry debate and dialogue in sustainable agriculture.
In addition, Nomad believes a focus on quality product and high output of usable yield, plus long-term relationships with farmers leads to a solid sustainability platform to build from.
Why is SAI Platform Membership Important?
Nomad plans to implement FSA within their supply chain, as well as actively participate in industry dialogue around sustainable agriculture. On both accounts, they feel that SAI Platform is the avenue for them to achieve this.
