Company and Supplier Responsibility

Company and Supplier Responsibility

General Statement

From the farms where ingredients are grown, to the suppliers that help us create our products, managing our supply chain is critical to the success of our business. We ensure that we, as well as those we work with, operate ethically and responsibly.

Sustainable Palm Oil

Post Holdings is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which was founded to increase the supply of sustainable palm oil products.

In 2015, we made the commitment that by December 31, 2016 all of our business units will directly purchase 100% RSPO mass balance certified sustainable palm oil.

Cage-Free Egg Production

Michael Foods, a division of Post Holdings, Inc., is one of the nation’s largest egg producers and the largest provider of cage-free egg products in the United States.  Michael Foods pays close attention to all issues affecting the national egg supply, including customer needs, consumer demand for egg products and hen housing systems.  Michael Foods is also a founding member of the Coalition for Sustainable Egg Supply (CSES), an alliance of egg farmers, retailers, foodservice operators, food manufacturers and academics.  For more information on CSES, please visit www2.sustainableeggcoalition.org.  Demand for cage-free eggs is growing, and Michael Foods will continue to invest in the production of cage-free eggs to meet that demand. Michael Foods will also continue to be an advocate for cage-free egg products with consumers and customers.  As customers seek to transition to cage-free eggs and egg products, Michael Foods will ensure the shift happens in a way that is reasonable and sustainable for all stakeholders, including the dedicated farmers who are the foundation of the egg supply system.

Supplier Standards

We are committed to maintaining a high standard of business ethics in dealings with our employees, governments, customers and consumers. It is also our mission to make sure that suppliers do the same, by sharing certain standards that guide our daily decisions and actions.

Post’s Supplier Code of Conduct reinforces our expectation that our suppliers do business ethically, protect our products, and support the goal of long-term sustainable supply by addressing known business, environmental and social risks and building supplier capability.
