Importer and Distributor of Single Use Disposable Goods
About Eagle Direct Ltd (Eagle Group)
The Eagle Group, comprising Eagle Protect (New Zealand) and Eagle Protect PBC (California, United States) is a leading and trusted importer and supplier of reliable, fit-for-purpose disposable consumable products to the food, medical and general industries for the New Zealand, Pacific and US market. They believe in supplying single-use disposable consumables responsibly - “providing protection for a busy, dirty world” - and, in many cases, their products can be critical for the safe and assured operation of their customer’s businesses.
Eagle's mission is to make it easy, fun and rewarding for their customers to buy from them. They care about what they do and the reason they started this business is to make a difference in the lives of everyone involved - customers, suppliers, staff and owners. The Eagle Group offer great products and great service. They have a vision to change the way people think: to offer opportunity for suppliers, staff and customers to be part of something great - a great company, a great employer, a great work-place, great people, a great customer relationship and a great reputation for quality products, ethical actions and powerful relationships. Everything Eagle does must reflect, sustain, and enhance our drive to be great.
The Eagle Group believes responsible business is about actively caring about their community from which sustainable business will follow, so they follow these steps:
• They demonstrate their care for the origin of their products through regular factory visits and audits, and by knowing their products inside out.
• They emphasis their environmental impact minimisation of how they source, pack and ship their products from supplier to customer.
• They talk about and live their Core Values, Vision and Mission and what they mean to their people and to their customers..
• They spread their message and their social responsibility story: “We may not cure cancer but we supply the people who try. We cannot always touch the end user with our message, but we can make sure those that do smile, laugh and relax a little.””
We sought to become a B Corp as we believe our values will find resonance in the B Corp message. We hope that, as ambassadors of the B Corp message, we can provide an example of how all businesses should aspire and, moreover, physically act to ensure our corner of the world remains a special place to live and do business.
