Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a term that has become increasingly relevant in recent years, and for Spunky Food Co. Ltd, it is not just a phrase. We have developed a set of CSR guidelines that guide our entire business, from product development and marketing to sales and customer relationships. We believe that social responsibility includes environmental preservation efforts, ethical labor practices, philanthropy, and promoting volunteering. Our CSR concept is directly reflected in the fundamental principles of the company, and we are committed to putting it at the heart of our daily operations. Implementing sustainable practices reduces waste and energy consumption, which can help reduce costs and improve efficiency. Additionally, maintaining a positive relationship with all stakeholders by demonstrating top-down governance practices with a commitment to ethical and sustainable practices can earn the trust and loyalty of customers, investors, and employees. At Spunky Food Co. Ltd, we are committed to reducing our ecological footprint by using better packaging (recycled paper) and improving our production processes with less pollution (using eco-friendly ink for printing). We also source ingredients from local and sustainable suppliers to reduce our environmental impact and support local communities. We also believe that education is key to creating a sustainable future. Therefore, we aim to educate our employees and all stakeholders on the importance of sustainability and encourage them to adopt eco-friendly practices also in their personal lives. We are proud to have incorporated the Green Industry Standard certification from the Ministry of Industries’ Green Industry Program, which recognizes companies that have implemented sustainable practices and reduce their environmental impact. This program focuses on implementing eco-friendly practices, such as reducing water and energy consumption, as well as minimizing waste and emissions.
We like to do things the right way
We don’t use animal fats in our production line. Our options are currently palm oil, coconut oil and rice bran oil. Of the three, palm oil and rice bran oil are actually the most efficient to produce. Using rice bran oil puts the least strain on resources, and it also carries excellent cooking properties. Rice Bran Oil is used for the majority of our products. In case we use palm oil, we will use the most ethical and sustainable palm oil possible, certified by the RSPO. This means it follows the highest agriculture standards, it is fully traceable, and grown on designated land that will not cause any further deforestation.
We envision the food manufacturing businesses as a force for good. Consumers demand products that are not only healthier, but all manufacturing processes must also consider a socially responsible and ecologically sustainable process. All products are completely processed and produced by Spunky food Co Ltd., which is an FDA, GHP, HACCP and Halal accredited food manufacturer. Using better packaging, improved production processes with less pollution and waste create new opportunities for companies that strive to be more sustainable.
People are the core of every operation and we understand that we carry responsibility for our employees. They don’t just work for our company, but they are also the consumers of other products and we want to see our people as the ambassadors of our brands. In this respect, the cornerstones for our corporate culture are fair treatment and remuneration, support and development for each individual, and engaging with people on equal terms. All staff and management at Spunky Food Co., Ltd. are completely committed to a positive engagement in social and environmental responsibility. We maintain our responsibility to customers and society, and we expect the same mindset from every single person on board.
We envision the food manufacturing businesses as a force for good. All manufacturing processes must also consider a socially responsible and ecologically sustainable process in strict compliance with ethical labor practices and legal requirements. We foster environmental engagement and best practices in our industry in order to minimize the impact on our environment. Our collective action is needed to achieve the set of 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 SDGs, which include for example “food waste” and “water consumption”, systematically translate major challenges into objectives. Our priority is an efficient use of water resources and a sustainable production that focuses on a substantial reduction of waste through prevention, reduction and recycling.
In light of the responsibility that we carry towards planet earth and next generations, we strive to do our best for the communities. Therefore, we want to create an excellent and positive relationship with all stakeholders. We have an ongoing relationship with numerous schools in the Greater Bangkok Area that involves donations, volunteering and sponsoring events. We further support the charities “The Queen Sirikit National Institute of Child Health (Children Hospital)” and the “David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust”. We treat our people like family members. In doing so, we support our employees with learning programs and employees’ children with several scholarships.
We are proud to source our ingredients throughout the Kingdom of Thailand. To mention a few, our shallots and chilis come from Si Sa Ket which is famous for the outstanding product quality that is determined by excellent soil and climatic conditions. Our Jasmine rice comes from a selected group of farmers in the Sukhothai province, which has a unique fragrance and softness – long grain, curled-up tips, and a clear, glossy exterior. We carefully select our coconut chips from Amphawa district in Samut Songkhram, Central Thailand. This province is often regarded as one of the best regions for coconut fruits with its unique sweet taste and aroma. The natural sweetness of these famous coconuts is unmatched and guarantees a perfect snack.
