Workplace

Our colleagues are the most valuable asset of our business.

Therefore, at Noble Foods we strive at all times to provide our colleagues with a workplace that is safe and free from discrimination and harassment.

A workplace where training opportunities are available for every individual to make the most of his or her potential. Above all, a working environment where outstanding performance is recognised and rewarded.

As part of this ongoing programme and our commitment to providing a safe place to work , we are currently working towards  OHSAS 18001 certification for all of our sites. We already have 100 % of sites in the milling, agricultural, poultry and desserts divisions certified to OHSAS 18001.  By being certified to OHSAS 18001, we are  demonstrating our commitment to implement, maintain and improve the way in which we manage our health and safety systems.

Our Values

Our Company Values are important to everyone at Noble Foods as they summarise how we like to work and what is important to us.

 

Noble Foods Values Programme

Community

At Noble Foods, one of our key CSR objectives is to support local communities and those in countries less well off than ourselves.

We are an active member of Business In The Community (BITC) which helps businesses tackle key social and environmental issues – more information is available at
www.bitc.org.uk.

We have a number of charitable initiatives including working with organisations who are closely linked to our products; we also encourage the fund raising interests of our colleagues as well as initiatives which give something back to the local communities in which we operate.

Malawi – Changing lives

In 2012, we began working with Fisherman’s Rest in Malawi. As an on-going relationship, we have raised money for key projects that have helped change the lives of many. Our ‘Food for Schools’ programme now feeds over 1,700 children daily, providing them with the energy to concentrate and excel at school.

We have transformed two rural schools into full primary schools. Through fundraising projects, we have raised sufficient funds to develop a secondary school with 4 classrooms, an IT classroom, a laboratory and a library with staff rooms at one of the sites.

The ‘Horton Community District Secondary School (CDSS)’ opened its doors to its first 50 children on the 1st October 2019 and will welcome more children in 2020 to provide a resource for higher education.

Environment

Noble Foods are constantly looking to develop sustainable ways of working which will reduce the operations on the environment.

Noble Foods Group are committed to reducing its impact upon the environment, by reducing our energy consumption to meet our targets under the ‘Climate Change Agreements’ and reduce our CO2 output. Noble Foods Group is actively seeking to employ energy efficient measures and renewable energy technology within its facilities. This has been enhanced by the creation of Noble Green Energy Ltd, so that the group now has its own in house expertise in project managing and delivering renewable energy projects both internally at our own sites, and externally.

Animal Welfare

At Noble Foods, animal welfare is at the cornerstone of everything we do. With our happy egg co. brand we aim to lead the way in setting animal welfare standards.

We have a team of experienced fieldsmen who visit every happy egg co. farm every month, to make sure that our high standards are being rigorously maintained. Although we are hen experts, we’re always happy to learn new ways to improve what we do and share this with all of our farmers. You can find out more at www.thehappyegg.co.uk.

In addition to our own farms we have long-term relationships with nearly 330 producers, and we collect eggs from more than 375 locations stretching from the highlands of Scotland to Cornwall. Our producers are mainly family-owned farming businesses and many of them also have other farming enterprises such as arable and other livestock. All of our producers follow the British Lion Quality Code of Practice. Only eggs that have been produced to the highest standards of food safety can carry the British Lion Quality mark.
