Pride in what we do

At Cranswick, we take our responsibilities to people and the planet seriously. We want to protect and restore natural habitats and increase biodiversity.

“As one of the world’s most responsible food producers, the choice is a simple one for us at Cranswick. We don’t want to be part of the problem – we want to be part of the solution. We want to inspire positive change and lead the way so that others can follow. That’s why we created Second Nature. It’s our climate ready blueprint for action.”

Adam Couch, Chief Executive Officer

Second Nature is our ambitious sustainability initiative.

We are passionate about ensuring we play our part in delivering a sustainable global food system. We want to lead the way in sustainability and continue to drive positive change from farm to fork. Put simply, we believe sustainability should be embedded in every business decision.

Second Nature is about challenging not only ourselves as individuals and as a business, it’s all encompassing; working together with our suppliers, supporting local communities and engaging stakeholders in everything we do. Making sustainability Second Nature.
