At Trevelyan’s, we have established a clear sustainability structure, which underpins how we operate. This framework is built on three key pillars: Work Smart, Tread Lightly and Respect Our People. Our focus on these pillars helps define our kaupapa (purpose) – growing a better future for our growers, our people, our environment and our industry.

We have spent the last 10 years growing our sustainable future in line with our core values. We have achieved a lot of ‘big little wins,’ but we recognise that there is still a lot of work to do.

For Trevelyan’s, sustainability is a priority – economic, environmental and social. And for us to continue to be sustainable, we try to transform any challenges we encounter into opportunities for our growers and our business.

These challenges include responding efficiently and effectively to volume growth, better technology and information systems, supporting our suppliers to make sustainable choices and helping our staff look after their emotional and physical wellbeing.

All business decisions are undertaken with consideration of our three key pillars, as these capture the areas we want to invest in for continuous improvement year-on-year.  By using these pillars as a ‘lens’ through which to look at our business, we can identify opportunities for improvement. 

If you’re interested in what we’re doing in the sustainability space, check out our Facebook and Instagram media pages for our Tuesday Sustainability Series.
