The Juice CSR Platform is a vision-driven Platform offering a space for collaboration and continuous improvement where all sector and supply chain stakeholders are included. The Platform enables stakeholders to work together to find solutions to common CSR-related opportunities, challenges and concerns. The Juice CSR platform’s overall objective is: To support, guide and inspire juice stakeholders to integrate CSR throughout the supply chain.
Social, environmental and ethical elements of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the fruit juice industry range from the farm and production level, through processing of fruit to juices, their bottling and packing, over to their delivery to the final consumer.
Integrating CSR across complex supply chains and engaging in a sector-wide approach is not an easy task, especially due to the variety in company sizes and levels of integration, and the fact that challenges and solutions can differ from one organization to another. This is where a sector platform, such as the Fruit Juice CSR Platform, can play an important role by providing the opportunity to build a CSR network in the juice industry, share information, collaborate and share good practices on CSR and responsible sourcing.
A set of 6 CSR Principles form the foundation for sector-wide collaboration within the Platform. You can find an overview of the 6 Principles here
The CSR principles have been derived from the UN Global Compacts’ Food and Agriculture Business Principles (FABs) and provide a framework upon which the Platform bases all its activities and programs.
In addition to the Principles, a list of existing tools and initiatives is provided in the 2014 JuiceCSR Sector Roadmap. This Roadmap provided guidance and formed the basis for defining commitments, joint targets and collaborative programs to be established in 2015 and beyond.
