Model Safer Food Additives Policy: Retailers/Grocers

Published: August 22, 2019 by Environmental Defense Fund (EDF+Business)

When it comes to safer food, we have identified Five Pillars of Leadership. But we often get asked how a retailer can put those into action effectively. The most effective tool in jump-starting and sustaining leadership is a written corporate chemicals policy. A chemicals policy institutionalizes your commitment to lead on safer food additives and articulates to all levels of the business, as well as to your suppliers, what the company wants to achieve. At a minimum, your chemicals policy should outline your aspirations for:

- Improving Supply Chain Transparency
- Cultivating Informed Consumers
- Embedding Safer Product Design
- Showing Public Commitment

What does that look like? EDF has created a template you can use when fleshing out your own chemicals policy. Our template provides the text you need as well as tips and resources for starting your journey.
