According to the report, spending on alcoholic beverages is expected to be robust over the next five years, as consumers trade up to more premium options such as craft beers and select wine and spirits. The Trends Report also predicts that the dry foods market should experience steady growth as consumers purchase more healthy, yet more expensive products (e.g. gluten-free, whole wheat, organic) as well as more frozen fruit, a bump caused by an increased interest in smoothies and homemade juices. However, as a growing number of health-conscious consumers look for fresher, more nutritious alternatives, sugary drinks and the frozen foods market will not fare as well.
For the eighth consecutive year, SCA has been recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute. Only three companies in the Forestry, Paper and Packaging category were honored this year and SCA is one of them. The World’s Most Ethical Companies designation highlights companies that truly go beyond making statements about doing business “ethically” and translate their words into action.
“SCA places strong emphasis on corporate responsibility and we are honored to be named one of the world’s most ethical companies for the eighth consecutive year. This award reflects the trust we strive to earn each day from our customers, consumers and business partners, and how our employees manage our extensive operations in a responsible way,” says Kersti Strandqvist, Senior Vice President, Group Function Sustainability, SCA.
The SCA corporate core values of Respect, Responsibility and Excellence, and the Code of Conduct, turn SCA values into direct action, and form the basis for the commitments to environmental and social responsibility. SCA is continuously conducting risk analyses, training, audits and other monitoring processes to ensure compliance with the Code of Conduct.
