Sir Kensington's, best known for making premium condiments and dressings, announced it has set initial impact targets focused on sustainable agriculture, responsible packaging, and team impact. Two years after becoming a Certified B Corporation, Sir Kensington's underscores its commitment to continuously measure and improve on its efforts for the betterment of all stakeholders.
As a company whose mission it is to reimagine ordinary and overlooked foods with fearless integrity and charm, Sir Kensington's believes it also has a responsibility to consider the overlooked people and resources in its value chain. The company's sustainability efforts reach toward a more traceable, ethical, and sustainable supply chain aligned with the responsibility it has to society. After a thorough process involving a materiality assessment, stakeholder conversations, and supply chain analysis, Sir Kensington's set the following initial impact targets:
Supporting Sustainable Agriculture
While not a perfect proxy for sustainability, 'organic' certification is a label for food that has been produced using practices that promote ecological balance and biodiversity, without the use of synthetic chemicals. Fewer synthetic chemicals means it's safer to consume, safer for the people who grow and harvest ingredients, and safer for soil and surrounding waterways. Expanding its use of organic ingredients builds on the company's long-held commitments to using 100% Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients and 100% Certified Humane® Free Range eggs.
To achieve this goal, Sir Kensington's is currently working to transition all eggs used in its products to certified organic, while maintaining its Certified Humane® Free Range commitment, for an even higher standard egg. As part of its broader sourcing strategy, the company is also identifying opportunities to carry the Fair Trade certification beyond its sweeteners to other at-risk product categories.
Using More Responsible Packaging
As a packaged foods company, Sir Kensington's acknowledges that packaging can create unintentional harm. By measuring recyclability, increasing recycle rates, and sourcing recycled content, Sir Kensington's seeks to address the potential impact at each stage in its packaging design process and take a 360-degree approach to the plastic challenge.
