Knowing what a product contains or does not contain is fundamental requirement of making a product to the highest standard, as this is a good indicator of real care and commitment from the field to our factory gate. Sourcing from farm co-ops together with strict purchasing controls is an example of what we do to produce products of the highest standards.

Plamil Foods Environmental Policy
Plamil Foods Ethics Policy
Plamil Foods Ltd is a private registered UK company with a single office, warehouse and manufacturing site in the UK. Plamil is a socially responsible business committed to commercial success whilst upholding the highest standards with regards to ethics, nutrition, and the environment. These commitments are specifically related to the following:
These are set out in the company's Articles and Memorandum: "To promote and carry on the business of producing vegan foods". In addition to the Articles and Memorandum, the company aims to undertake related activities and services in the following manner:
c. We encourage the use of products from a non-animal origin, as this often has the effect of reducing the use of similar products with an animal origin.
Plamil is committed to using banking services that that are more clearly working towards the company's ethos than competitors. The company uses the banking services of The Co-operative Bank, a member of The Co-operative Group. Plamil does not make use of tax havens or tax avoidance mechanisms. Plamil does not provide funding for any political parties, corporate lobby groups or other organisations engaged in political activities.
Plamil has a commitment to never knowingly use or source ingredients or products that result from child labour (such as defined by UNICEF) or from forced or exploitative adult labour. While Plamil gathers as much information as possible from suppliers regarding their labour policies, we are reliant on the information provided by third parties on this issue.
Plamil adheres to, and is governed by, all UK employment legislation regarding pay, conditions and anti-discrimination law. Plamil also adheres to the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code. Employees have a right to freedom of association, union membership and collective bargaining to the extent permitted by law. Employees receive additional development and training commensurate to, and often above, the requirements of their job function. The policies and practises of the company protect these rights. Employees are expected to uphold the company's ethics in their internal and external activities and interactions.
c. Plamil only sells the products of third party organisations as long as these are vegan. The products of third parties are subject to the policies of their manufacturer.
d. Plamil uses its own 'vegan' logo. This is because the company considers other vegan trademarks which allow for the use of the phrase 'may contain milk/eggs/fish' to not be as high a vegan standard as that to which Plamil aspires.
Plamil strives to provide customers with the highest quality customer service. The company is able to provide assurance to its customers of the quality of its products through the systems in place and through the nutritional information which is available, for example on our website. Plamil operates an 'open idea' survey in which customers can email suggestions and comments to the company, which the company reflect upon for future activities and products.
