RESPONSIBILITY FOR BOTH THE PRODUCT AND THE INDUSTRY
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not only a catchphrase for us. We understand CSR to be inseparably paired with transparent and sustainable acting. As the term already suggests, it is about entrepreneurial willingness to care about the staff in social respect – which is a topic we have been devoting ourselves to for quite a long time already.
Trailblazer in Terms of Transparency
Together with our Parent Company VION, we started a Transparency Offensive concerning the production and the processing of our food products as one of the first companies in the meat business to do so: It started with the publication of official veterinary´s checks (2014) and by creating a detailed, informative Transparency Website (2016). The website hosts a plentitude of videos, photos, and texts providing genuine background information and insight into our production processes. It is a perfect tool for us to document our responsibility for the quality of our products – from animal husbandry to the slaughtering process.
Do you know …
that we process virtually any part of the animals we slaughter? “From nose to tail“ is a motto for us to express our respect for the animal.

Sustainability in all facets
We at VION and SALOMON FoodWorld® understand CSR to be a lot more than just a responsible and transparent chain of production and chain of supply or utmost food safety. We understand sustainability to be a commitment to the future in terms of environmental issues and development of the industry. Therefore, the VION CSR-Report provides insight into topics such as:
- Our strategies for keeping animals in a near-natural environment and for appropriate animal slaughtering (see above)
- Our measures to back resource-saving production methods (e.g. reducing energy consumption, water consumption, and superfluous packaging)
- Our commitment to support the newcomers in the industry (e.g. support on different levels, which are also beneficial for you)
