Patties commitment to sustainable packaging


The United Nations Sustainability Goals are our goals.

In recent years we have consulted with our workforce, evolved with consumer and customer expectations, and aligned our priorities with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Focusing our strategic priorities on three key areas:

  1. Reducing our environmental impact
  2. Care and support for the people and communities in which we operate
  3. Deep commitment to doing what is right.
Focusing our strategic priorities on three key areas blocks

How we are reducing our environmental impact

More Sustainable Packaging

As a food manufacturer of retail and single serve products, making our packaging more sustainable is one of the most important things we can do to improve our environmental footprint. We are proud to be currently rated as a leader in sustainable packaging by APCO.

Diverting waste from landfill

We're mindful that our production results in organic and solid waste, which can lead to potent methane emissions if sent to landfills. We're committed to ambitious waste reduction goals to minimise our emissions from manufacturing processes.

Reducing our Carbon footprint

Our manufacturing plants and equipment require a lot of energy to operate and provide food to all our customers, so as our business grows we are committed to energy transition.

How we are supporting people and communities

Meaningful Support for our local communities

As a food business, we feel strongly about helping those in our communities experiencing food insecurity. As a large and growing company, we believe we are well placed to fundraise for our nominated charities by voluntary payroll deductions and company dollar matching.

Our people are our most valuable asset, so keeping everyone safe is of utmost importance. A highly engaged workforce has benefits both for the organisation and for the physical and mental wellbeing of our employees.

How we are doing what is right

Sourcing from ethical suppliers

Our operations are supported by a complex and global supply chain. With risks of modern slavery and unethical practices, we are committed to understanding and mitigating these dangers to the greatest extent possible.

Sourcing ethical ingredients

As a procurer of a wide range and significant volume of ingredients, it's important that we consider animal welfare and the natural environment in procurement and product development.

Our code of ethics

Patties has a comprehensive code of ethics which, for the sake of simplicity, we’ve summarised below.

Our labour standards

Patties and its supply chains treat our people in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.This includes not putting them at risk of physical harm, making sure they are lawfully and fairly compensated, not exploiting them in any way - including modern slavery. All overtime must be voluntary.

Our environmental protection

Patties Foods Group requires its suppliers to respect resources and protect the environment, and to pursue continuous improvement in the management of their environmental impact.

Our sustainable packaging

We expect our suppliers to supply goods and services in packaging which are recyclable, reusable or compostable and to work towards Australia’s 2025 National Packaging Targets. This means 100% of our packaging will be re-usable, recyclable or compostable by 2025;

Our business integrity

We demand our people and our suppliers conduct their business ethically in a legal, honest and transparent manner without any fraudulent practices

Our raw materials

We always prioritise sourcing raw materials from Australian producers, when cost, quality and other trading terms allow. We steer away from genetically modified organisms in our products. And we respect animal welfare - all our suppliers must have RSPCA Approved Certification.
