Everything we do is dedicated to making better tasting food, and that includes growing our ingredients sustainably. It’s not only good for the planet, but we believe you can taste the difference in every dish you cook.
Our story of sustainability isn’t just one story, it’s a thousand little ones that all come together to make the world a better, tastier place. From our farmers to our suppliers and chefs, everyone is doing their bit to help us source all of our agricultural ingredients sustainably by 2020, and they all have their own tale to tell, and they’re all doing their bit to help us source all of our vegetables, herbs and cereals sustainably by 2020.

We spent three years searching for the perfect basil. with some help from our herb farmers and a library of ancient seeds, I tasted 145 different varieties to select three basil types with the perfect strong and intense taste for our Knorr recipes.
Together, farmers who’ve been in our program for three years have saved 10.6 million litres of irrigation water - that’s the equivalent of 55,000 average showers

In the race to capture that peak moment of sweetness, it’s not only the taste and smell of a vegetable that tells you when it’s ready to be harvested. Sometimes, it’s how it sounds.How to tell it’s ready
Did you know the best time to harvest fresh herbs is at night when it’s cool and they’re not wilting? Night or day, we work to dry them as quickly as possible to lock in their delicious aroma.
After harvesting, the tops of carrots and the leaves of onions are left on the fields where they get ploughed back into the soil, as a wonderful, free source of nutrient-packed rich compost. Farmers love freebies.
Our onions in Serbia are peeled by hand and dried within a couple of hours to keep their intense flavour.
This is where the hard work comes together. We believe it leads to rich flavours, sweet vegetables and feel-good food all round. Our chefs work closely with Knorr farmers to make sure their love for growing great food makes a real difference in Knorr products, and in the meals you cook with them.
We are on a journey, working with our farmers to ensure that our chicken, pork and beef will be reared to good animal welfare standards. Our ambition has been recognised by Compassion in World Farming.
When you see the Knorr Partnership logo, you know that we have sustainably grown ingredients inside.
