We believe that sustainably grown food doesn’t just taste better, it’s also better for the planet. That’s why, in 2011 we set up the Knorr Partnership Fund. This invests up to €1 million every year into co-funded projects with suppliers for their farmers, and helps them meet, or go beyond, the requirements of our Unilever Sustainable Agriculture Code. And it’s helped farmers reap some real benefits.
Every Knorr supports sustainable farming
Better tasting food starts with sustainably sourced ingredients. Every time you use Knorr products to stir, simmer and sauté your way to a delicious kitchen creation, you’re helping invest up to €1 million a year into making the world a tastier place, by supporting sustainable farming and agriculture.
The Knorr Partnership Fund invests up to €1 million each year
So far, we’ve helped over 27,000 farmers and farm workers across more than 100 projects
Some of the projects the fund has aided include: helping herb farmers in Germany give their staff beekeeper training, partnering Spanish tomato farmers with the Spanish Ornithological Society (SEO / BirdLife) to improve the habitats of 158 bird species, and helping vegetable farmers in France plant flowers alongside crops to increase biodiversity. Together we’re helping farmers create the tastiest, most environmentally friendly produce they possibly can.
Ensuring all 7 billion + of us have a dinner menu that’s always delicious and sustainable
Although the Knorr Partnership Fund has achieved a lot of good work so far, there’s still so much more we can do. So, go ahead and get cooking! The more oh-so-Instagramable breakfasts, better-than-a-supermarket-sandwich lunches, and Michelin star dinners you put together with Knorr, the more farmers we can help! Together we can discover sustainability innovations, while bringing delicious ingredients from farm to fork.
We’re creating a story of sustainability that isn’t just one story, it’s a thousand little ones that all come together to make the world a better, tastier place.
Every U Does Good. Unilever
