Belazu Ingredient Company was established in 1991, when their co-founder George came back across the channel with a van full of olives and big dreams. From the moment the first barrel of olives were sold, sustainability and social engagement have always been weaved into Belazu’s business goals. Belazu are proud to have been a London Living Wage Employer since 2013 and have a strong CSR policy. The site in Greenford (West London) has been recognised as a Zero Landfill business since 2013 and has won four national awards for recycling. They work together with their community of suppliers, customers, employees, and wider partners to accomplish CSR goals. Belazu recently launched a new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, ‘The Journey Matters’, to give their sustainability program a more goal-driven focus. Product, Planet, and People are the three core pillars of the initiative. The Belazu Foundation was established in 2003 supporting disadvantaged children and their families through education and access to healthy food. 3% of the Belazu Ingredient Company’s annual profits go to the Foundation.
