Santos Ethics Policy
Each and Every Dollar we spend is a vote for, or, against the Earth. SANTOS - helping you to spend wisely.
At SANTOS we know that each and every decision that we make has an impact on every aspect of the web of life in which we live, the planet and all of its natural systems. We know living an ethical life should be based on compassion and that every being - human and animal - has right to be loved and to be freely able to experience a safe, happy and healthy life.
Yet all is not well in the environment in which we live in, corporate interests are taking precedent over the safety and security of our access to clean water, clean air and clean food, and they have corrupted the information we receive from the Media, Science and our Government.
We need to change our consumer habits and we need to do it urgently. We need to make ethical decisions about the things we buy; where they come from, how they were made and the practices of the companies that make them.
SANTOS also knows that by helping to build a strong and vibrant Community we are helping the World. We support many ethical organisations that are doing amazing deeds every day to make planet Earth healthy and happy for everyone.
Values and Principles
Transformational Foods for the People and the Planet
At SANTOS we know the true value of the food we eat. It is one of the supreme joys of life and the nourishing answer to many unnecessary illnesses
We understand the life giving properties of pure and natural foods that are unadulterated by technological manipulation. We know that food transforms us and that our food choices transform the Earth
Food sovereignty is the right of the people to healthy life giving food that is produced through ecologically sustainable methods and the right to democratically participate in decisions about our food and agriculture systems.
We support the idea that those who produce, distribute and consume food should be at the heart of food systems and policy rather than at the mercy of global markets and corporations.
This model promotes local food production and defends the interests and inclusion of future generations.
At SANTOS we endeavour to provide insight into the merits of a new way for consumers to value food which is not simply a cost measure.
We aim to provide essential and accessible Community information regarding all aspects of consumer goods and their ingredients. We want our customers to be able to make conscious choices when they shop and to be able to share this knowledge within the broader Community.
We support the idea of Conscious Food Citizens rather than consumers a practice which can only occur through education.
The term food citizenship is defined as the practice of engaging in food-related behaviours that support, rather than threaten, the development of a democratic, socially and economically just and environmentally sustainable food systems.
We support measures which guarantee the developed sustainability of our business practises, the products we supply and the causes we support. We reject intensive, industrialised and destructive production methods and align ourselves with Nature’s contributions and design. We continue to support the development of the localisation of our Community and economy as a clear way to reduce our impact on the Earth.
