Premier Foods make progress on all three pillars of ESG strategy
Premier Foods, one of the UK’s largest food manufacturers, has delivered progress against all three pillars of its ESG strategy – the Enriching Life Plan – in the year to April 2024.

The announcement marks the second consecutive year of progress against the strategy, which was launched in November 2021 and is articulated across three key strategic pillars – Product, Planet and People.

Progress includes:

  • Product: 44% of Premier Foods’ products now meet high nutritional standards as well as having registered heath or nutrition benefits, like one of your five-a-day or added fibre.
  • Planet: A 22.4% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions versus Premier Foods’ FY20/21 baseline, as the business laid out key steps towards its net-zero goals. 
  • People: 41% of senior management roles are now held by women

Nick Brown, ESG director at Premier Foods, said: “Our Enriching Life Plan ESG strategy covers everything that Premier Foods touches, from the products we make to the ingredients we source and natural resources we rely on, to the culture of our people and the impact we have on the communities we operate in.

“It is a testament to the commitment of everyone at Premier Foods that we have been able to deliver substantial progress against so much of this plan in its first two years. We are continuing to strive towards our 2030 goals, while delivering strong business performance that will help prepare the business for the future and enable us to invest and lead change and collaboration across the food industry."
