There is a cacophony of national and international policies which relate with the environment and the food chain.
The Policy states broad aims such as:
Choose what you want to commit to - something you can realistically achieve and be able to tell your customers. Companies increasingly want to signal to consumers that they are taking more care over food than that required by law.
Write your policy based on the standards of policy writing set by environmental management systems.
