Healthy Diets PR5, FP1, FP4 and FP5

The development of healthy food products contributes to the adoption, by part of the population, of eating habits that are also healthier. For this reason, Bunge uses international quality standards and invests in research in order to ensure a constant improvement in its products.

These practices of excellence are evidenced by the fact that the company has been awarded a number of independent certifications and standards of Quality (ISO 9001) and Environmental (ISO 14001) management, among others (see a complete list in Corporate Governance). Bunge also imposes strict rules of quality on its suppliers, and carries our regular conformity inspections.   

In order to encourage the adoption of healthy habits, the company has invested in publications, and offered its employees training sessions and its consumers, free workshops. In addition, the Company has promoted campaigns aimed at awareness in relation to eating habits and the adoption of a healthier lifestyle.

The principles of conscious consumption are promoted through the training of the company’s employees, as well as through the participation in seminars and events aimed at consumer awareness. Through its Ipas (Pro-Sustainable Food Initiative), a partnership between Bunge and other companies and entities in the food chain, the company organizes free workshops and other activities aimed at promoting the concept.

The Company also took part in producing the content of the 2nd magazine in the series, “Pense Bem” (“Think Carefully”), by IPAS (Pro-Sustainable Food Initiative), published in 2011. Using as its main theme “Conscious Consumption”, its aim was to act as a practical guide to help food consumers choose a healthier diet. Still in 2011, the company produced the content of the 3rd edition of the magazine, which is expected to come out in 2012. Using as its main theme “A Healthy Diet”, it will provide useful information on the pleasures of a healthier diet and on how best to choose and prepare food. PR5, FP1, FP4 and FP5

Goals and Results

Bunge’s challenge, in all of its operations, is to maintain the quality of its products and adequate food safety standards during each stage of production and, additionally, to encourage consumers and customers alike to adopt a healthier lifestyle. These targets include:

To continue in its efforts to disseminate the concepts and benefits of healthy eating among consumers.

  • Target achieved In addition to the work carried out in promoting healthy eating through the publication of electronic and printed material on the subject, Bunge also offered the market two new products with a health appeal, its Cardeal brand of Extra Virgin Oil and its Salada brand of 3 Seeds Oil. The company also invested in additional food safety control measures. 1.2, FP4, FP6 and FP7

Healthiness PR2, FP4, FP6 and FP7

Bunge is involved in developing fats and margarines that are referred to as being “Low Trans Low Sat”, which means that they contained less trans-fat and unsaturated and saturated fats than existing products, even though they maintain their same nutritional and functional aspects. Thus the company fulfills the market’s need for healthier products.

Distributor of the brand Andorinha in Brazil, since 2011, Bunge has begun to offer consumers a new organic olive oil, made from olives produced without the use of chemical products and in specially certified areas.

Trans Fat: change in the portfolio FP6

As part of its range of consumer products, Bunge sells Rice, Vegetable Oils (Soy, Corn, Canola, Sunflower and Blends), Olive Oils, Mayonnaises, Margarines, and Tomato Sauces and Concentrates. These products are free of trans fats, the exception being the Margarines: 30% of these do contain these fats in their composition.   

The Company’s portfolio of vegetable fats sold to industry has changed considerably since 2007, mainly because of a consensus among big industries that they need to reduce the quantity of such fats in their products. In 2006, 80% of Bunge’s portfolio was made up of products with conventional levels of trans fats and only 20% were made with vegetable oils and fats with low trans-fat content. 

In 2007, these numbers changed to 66% of vegetable fats with a conventional trans content and 34% with vegetable oils and fats with low trans content. Since 2008, the portfolio has remained at 50% of products with vegetable oils and fats with low levels of trans, with options for a wide variety of applications.

In 2010, Bunge began offering some products with low trans-fat content as well as low saturated fat content. At the present time, these represent around 2% of the portfolio, but this proportion is likely to increase as the company moves forward with its objective to reduce the consumption of saturated fats. 

Trans Fat: Bunge participates in the reduction

FP6

Bunge understands that the increase in the consumption of Vegetable Fats with low trans-fat content depends on the adoption of these ingredients by its customers. Either way, through the changes it made to its Margarines and Vegetable Fats, the Company nevertheless contributed to ensuring that each Brazilian consumes 0.3g less of Trans Fat per day. This doesn’t seem much, but alone, Bunge has contributed to a 10% reduction in the consumption of Trans Fat in Brazil, since 2006. In 2006, each Brazilian consumed, on average, somewhere between 5.5 and 6g of Trans Fat per day. 

Through a commitment on the part of Industry and the Ministry of Health, this consumption was reduced by somewhere between 2.5 and 3g per day, a reduction of 3g per person per day, and Bunge alone contributed to 10% of this reduction.  

In a study presented in 2010, ABIA (Brazilian Association of Food Industries) estimated that, considering the Food Industry as a whole, 230,000 tons less of Trans Fat were sold to the consumer market in 2009 than in 2008.

Sodium: Bunge on the lookout

FP6

With regard to sodium, Bunge, through the ABIA (Brazilian Association of Food Industries), actively participates in an agreement between the entity and the Ministry of Health to reduce the amount of sodium in food. Among the Company’s consumer products, Mayonnaise is one that has targets in place for reducing sodium levels, running from 2012 to 2014, although the targets for 2012 have already been reached, while 66% of these products have already achieved the targets set for 2014.   

In the case of Margarines, more than 80% of the company’s products are already adhering to the target for reducing sodium set for 2013, while 50% have achieved the target set for the year 2015. Bunge has also committed itself to reducing the level of sodium in products sold to the Food Services and to Industries, thereby helping consumers indirectly as well. Premixes for Cakes, for example, already comply with the targets set for 2012 and 2014, and the Premix used to make French Bread is being developed to similarly comply with these targets.

Saturated fats: low content

FP6

In terms of saturated fats, around 40% of Bunge’s margarine brands and 70% of its mayonnaise brands are low in these fats. All the Vegetable Oils naturally have between 8% and 18% in saturated fats, the proportion varying depending on their origin (Canola, Soy, Corn, Sunflower or Olive Oil). This means that they are also made up of between 92% and 82% of mono and polyunsaturated fats, the so-called healthy fats.  

Bunge informs its consumers about the importance of avoiding the consumption of cholesterol, of trans-fats and of reducing the intake of saturated fats, as much as possible.   

In this aspect, Bunge’s portfolio of products sold to end-consumers, to the Food Service and as ingredients to Industry, can be seen to have had a positive effect on the population’s diet. If one looks at the whole range of products, including vegetable oils, olive oils, margarines, mayonnaises and vegetable fats, the company is delivering 73% mono and polyunsaturated fats, 22% saturated fats and just 5% trans-fats.   

Thus, the impact is essentially positive, as Bunge, through its products, delivers almost 3 times as much good fat (mono and polyunsaturated) as the saturated and Trans fats to the market.    

Nevertheless,the Company means to continue its research and the development of its products, in a bid to reduce the trans-fat and the saturated fat content of its foods even further.FP6

Vitamins: Bunge delivers health

FP6

Bunge products deliver important quantities of certain vitamins to the population. Its vegetable oils, for example, are one of the most important natural sources of Vitamin E in food. If one considers how much vegetable oil the Company sells, the quantity of Vitamin E offered to the market would be enough to supply the total daily needs of around 35 million people, equivalent to the states of Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro put together (Censo 2010 – IBGE). In addition to the products naturally containing vitamin, such as vegetable oils, Bunge also provides products fortified with other vitamins such as A and D.

All of the company’s margarines are enriched with Vitamin A. The volume of products sold every year would be enough to fully supply the daily vitamin needs of five million people, equivalent to twice the population of the Brazil’s Capital, Brasilia  (Censo 2010 – IBGE). Recently, the Delicia line of margarines has been reformulated and nowadays, besides the fortification with vitamin A, vitamins D and E are also added to the formula, helping to supply the lack of these vitamins among the Brazilian population.

Iron, folic acid and fiber

Bunge's Wheat Flours and Mixes for making Breads and Cakes, sold to the Food Service market and Industries, are enriched with Iron and Folic Acid, and naturally contain Fiber.

The addition of Iron and Folic Acid to Wheat and Corn Flours has been compulsory in Brazil since June of 2004, as stipulated under an ANVISA (Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency) Resolution (Resolution - RDC Nº 344, of December 13th, 2002). This compulsory requirement applies both to flours sold directly to the consumer, as well as those used as raw materials by industries, in the making of other products, such as breads and pastas for example.    

Folic Acid and Iron are present in the Flours and Mixes made by Bunge: in sufficient quantities to supply the total daily needs of 9 million people, a little more than the entire population of the Brazilian state of Pernambuco (8.8 million) in the case of the former, and 7.5 million people, the same as the population of the state of Pará, in the case of the latter.

Finally, the Fiber that is naturally present in Wheat Flours and in Mixes that use Wheat Flours as a base, and that is delivered to the population in the form of Bunge products, is sufficient in quantity to supply the daily needs of 5.3 million people, equivalent to the populations of Mato Grosso and Mato Gross do Sul states combined. Fiber is one of the nutrients that is generally lacking in Brazilian diets. The Company has noted an increasing interest among end-consumers in wholefoods. Evidence of this can be found in the ever growing numbers of whole grain biscuits and breads found on supermarket shelves. FP7

Cardeal Extra Virgin Olive Oil FP4

With the arrival in the Brazilian market of the Cardeal Extra Virgin Olive Oil, imported and distributed by Bunge Brasil, kitchen chefs and professionals in gastronomy were able to rely, in 2011, on a new and flavorsome ally in preparing their best dishes and in flavoring their salads. 

Product especially suited to harmonize the dishes and accompaniments to drinks, olive oil plays a central role in a healthy diet, for its antioxidant properties, which slow the cellular aging process, and by offering protection against cancer and cardiovascular disease. Sold in 500 ml glass bottles, this new olive oil is among the best examples of Mediterranean cooking, considered the healthiest in the world. It comes in two versions, one with a maximum acidity of 0.3%, and the other with 0.5%, respectively, chosen for the purpose of allowing for different levels of harmonization. 

Because it is a differentiated and high quality product, it competes in the high-end segment of olive oils, those with greater added value.  

Salada 3 Grains Oil FP4

Carefully formulated to offer the most complete oil in the market in terms of nutrition, the Salada brand 3 Grains Oil is recommended for those seeking a healthier diet. Its ingredients include canola, sunflower and corn oils, and Vitamins A, D and E, as well as setting a balance between omegas 3 and 6. It comes in a 900 ml bottle.

Filtered 8 times, this light and smooth oil has no smell and does not interfere with the flavor of the food. The Salada 3 Grains (3 Sementes) oil has 0% Trans Fat and 0% Cholesterol. By balancing the fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega 6, this product favors a reduction in bad cholesterol (LDL) and an increase in good cholesterol (HDL). The Vitamin E, meanwhile, acts as an antioxidant in the fight against early aging, while the Vitamins A and D work as nutrients that are essential for the organism to function properly.

For its contribution to a healthy diet, this product was awarded a Seal of Approval from the SBC (Brazilian Cardiology Society), which considered it a healthy product.

Product Responsability 4.11, FP4 and PR2

Quality and Product Safety is one of the directives of the PQSE (Productivity, Quality, Safety and Environment), a global initiative aimed at promoting operational excellence and a high performance culture. 

Quality Management is based on Consumer Satisfaction, the Offer of Competitive Advantage and Excellence in Compliance, upon which are erected the pillars of Food Safety, Quality Administration, Outsourcing Suppliers, Focus on the Client and Analytical Activities. 

Through this structure, the Food & Ingredients Quality Management department carries out its functions of certifying units, guaranteeing process parameters and reducing consumer and client complaints.PR2

Bunge Brasil provides information on the ingredients and nutritional values of its products through the company’s various tools of communication, such as on its website, in its advertising campaigns and in brochures, handed out to its consumers. All the labels of products sold by Bunge provide a range of information on guarantees, date of manufacture, sell-by-dates and storage instructions.FP4

The company is also involved in developing research aimed at reducing to a minimum, the use of substances that, in excess, may be prejudicial to the health of consumers. It’s a process that, on the one hand, seeks to satisfy the demands and the desires of consumption and, on the other, seeks to maintain the characteristics of healthiness and attributes of aroma and flavor.4.11

In addition to the quality of food, Bunge also concerns itself with the quality of the materials used in packaging, continuously seeking a minimum possible use of raw materials and the use of biodegradable materials wherever possible.  

Control over Food Safety PR2 and FP5

From field to table, all of Bunge’s products pass through a series of control systems that seek to guarantee their safety and quality. There are a number of stipulated and systemized procedures in place, based on relevant legislation and on the principles of best practices, aimed at verifying the compliance of each raw material and input (ingredient, additive, packaging etc.) used by the company. Industrial processes, as well as those involving distribution and product sales, also use this same logic, of implementing controls and check-points throughout the process.  

The percentage of production manufactured at certified operational units has reached 70%. The following management systems certify Food & Ingredients Business: ISO 9001, units Jaguaré, Suape, Rondonopolis, LEM, Gaspar, Luziânia, Santos, Suape Mill and Ponta Grossa, GMP + B2 (Production of Feed Ingredients) in factories and GMP factories + B3 (Trade, Collection and Storage & transshipment) in transshipments, ports and commercial area. It is also in process the implementation of the FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification - Food Safety) for units Suape and Ponta Grossa and ISO/IEC 17025 (General Requirements for the Competence of Calibration and Testing Laboratories) for biodiesel lab at Nova Mutum Plant, both with certification expected in December 2012.FP5

Regular audits, carried out in-house or by outsourced auditors, and even carried out at the facilities of suppliers and partners, help monitor the consistency and effectiveness of the controls in place. 

Similarly, at the stages of conception and development, consumer health and safety are considered as essential aspects in the characterization of the final product; it must be of the very best quality, comply with the applications for which it has been designed, safe in terms of its composition and should have packaging that is safe to handle.    

This area also deals with improving the quality of vegetable oils with a lower concentration of fat that end up being used by customers in the production of biscuits, breads and other foods. 

The company maintains strict controls at each stage of production at its Food & Ingredients and Agribusiness units. This is true, not only in the case of the plants producing flours and mixes for bread and cake making,  produced by TrigoBrasil, under the auspices of Bunge Brasil, but also in the case of its grain storage silos, transshipment areas, port terminals and distribution centers.    

The company’s high standards of quality and food safety are the result of an extensive process of inspection, operational rules and plans set down for calibration and preventative maintenance at each stage. Its products are subjected to inspections, measurement, tests and/or trails that verify their compliance with the pre-set specifications and requirements of quality and safety. Each unit establishes procedures that certify its management processes, identifying potential risks and dangers associated with food safety.PR2

Labeling PR3 and FP8

Products manufactured by Bunge are subject to the regulations set down specifically by ANVISA (Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency), the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA), the Ministry of Justice, and the National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (INMETRO). These norms govern the compulsory information that should be provided on all product labels, such as the Ingredients, Nutritional Values Information, Conditions of Preservation, Sell-by Date, How the Product should be Prepared and Consumed, Materials that make up the packaging, etc. Voluntary information, such as consumption suggestions (recipes etc.) and product benefits, should also follow the criteria set down in legislation, so that such information adequately expresses the characteristics of each product, allowing consumers to exercise their right to choose in a conscious manner.

For 2012, the plan is to hold training programs for those involved in the development of product labels, especially those professionals in the Research & Development and in the Marketing Departments, who are responsible for final approval of products, in all their aspects.PR3

The Fertilizer business conforms to the directives of Decree No. 4,954, of January 14th, 2004, governing the requirement for labels to provide information on product guarantees, date of manufacture, sell-by date and storage instructions. With the exception of products sold in bulk, all other products should provide clearly labeled information.  

In addition to including ingredients and nutritional values on the labels of its products, the company also provides this kind of information through its different channels of communication and materials, including its website, its advertising campaigns and in the printed material it distributes to consumers. Its customer service center (SAC), for example, offers consumers nutritional and ingredient information on all the company’s products. Those consumers seeking it can also obtain information on the application and proper use of Bunge products.      

In the case of the Food Service sector (Bunge Pro Line - Bakery, Confectionery and Meal), meanwhile, the Food & Ingredients Business Unit maintains a SABE (Specialist Service Center), which provides information on the same aspects of the products. This information is also provided during the training programs given by Bunge teams to customers (bakers, confectioners, restaurant professionals etc.), and it is even included in the support and publicity material offered. In many cases, the nutritional information and ingredients of Bunge products are used as the basis of specialist diets, such as those that require a high fiber content, low sugar content etc.   

A number of Bunge products sold to the Food Service sector are not legally required to declare Nutritional Information. However, all Bunge products sold to this sector do come with this information regardless, since the company considers it helpful to users in formulating their recipes.

In its product publications and demonstrations to Industrial Customers, Bunge also uses Nutritional and Ingredients data as the basis of its search for the best solutions for these Customers, such as, for example, by showing them the benefits of using Bunge Vegetable Fats with low Trans Fat content in their final food products.

One could say then that, in addition to complying with legal requirements, the provision of nutritional information and ingredients is also an important element in the advertising and sales pitch of Bunge products.FP8

Geneticly Modified Organisms - GMO PR3 and FP8

Bunge considers as key all the issues related to the pillars, Sustainable Agriculture and Healthy Diets, that incorporate its Sustainability Platform. To keep up on issues like food security and sustainability best practices in agriculture, the company tracks the issues related to the development of research involving genetically modified foods and grains. Studies reveal no evidence that these products among those available in the soybean market, offer a risk to human health. Regardless, Bunge considers legitimate and healthy civil society's concern with the production and consumption of GMOs. Bunge maintains its position on the subject and confirms that acts proactively in monitoring the progress of studies and research in this area. Likewise, the company did not receive any questioning from customers about this issue, as well as in 2010.

Likewise, the company respects and maintains full compliance with Brazilian legislation authorizing the commercialization of products containing transgenic components and determines that packaging will identify GM ingredients in the formulation that exceeds 1%. More than that, even when GM ingredients fall below the limit set by law, Bunge has proactively decided to disclose this GM content on the labels of its bottled soybean oil.

Bunge believes that the GMO crops have been shown to be a good technological tool for agriculture, allowing less use of pesticides and herbicides, with consequent reductions in emissions and increase in production. Thus, biotechnology can be used to raise productivity and reduce the pressure for larger planting areas.

The company serves markets that choose GMO free crops derivatives, applying a service fee charge for the segregation of the grains.

Voluntary Codes PR2, PR6 and PR7

In terms of marketing and advertising its products in the market, the Food Business complies with the regulations set down by CONAR (National Council of Advertising Self-Regulation). Promotions are run in accordance with applicable regulations, and Bunge always obtains the necessary authorizations from the appropriate authorities well in advance. Sponsorship activities are carried out in the spirit of Bunge Brasil’s Socioenvironmental Responsibility, governed by internal policy that favors actions of education, health and environment. The Fertilizer business adopts a clear, transparent and responsible communication strategy that is in accordance with ATTACHMENT "R" – CONAR’s agrochemicals. Testimonials used in campaigns must always comply with clause 3 – Testimonials by Normal Individuals or Consumers in ATTACHMENT "Q" – Testimonials, Witness Statements and Validations. Thus, real consumers are always used, with no ties to Bunge. There are no instances where the company’s products have been banned from sale in specific markets.PR6

Food & Ingredients and Fertilizers Business Units continually assess adherence to laws, regulations and voluntary codes related to marketing communications, and in case of doubt, the Legal Department is involved for guidelines with the relevant technical areas. In other business, such communication standards do not apply, since they do not address activities that require advertising and promotion.

In 2011, Food & Ingredients and Fertilizers Business Units, which make use of advertising and promotion actions, did not register a single non-conformity related to these activities.PR7

In terms of “Health and Safety” during the cycle of life, involving customers and consumers, not a single non-conformity was registered in relation to regulations or voluntary codes in place, nor was a single Fine imposed or Administrative Procedure filed against the Company.PR2

Client Satisfaction Assessment (Research) PR1 and PR5

At the launch of any new food or ingredient, Bunge applies the tool known as Quality Function Deployment (QFD) to it, which allows the company to “hear” the client and monitor his needs and views in relation to this new item.

The information obtained is analyzed and transformed in requirements for improving the product in question, taking into consideration factors such as competition, risks and eco-efficiency, the latter bring a factor that forms part of the Bunge Sustainability Platform.

In order to assess the level of customer satisfaction, the areas of Food & Ingredients and Fertilizers annually hold surveys  into its activities, starting with the origin of the raw materials used and ending at the end product. It uses the Net Promoter Score (NPS) methodology, which shows the level of satisfaction of Customers and Consumers alike, in relation to the products and services on offer. On being consulted, the interviewees assume the roles of Promoters (who recommend Bunge’s products and services to others) or Detractors (those who are not satisfied and do not recommend these products or services). When evaluating products of Fertilizers Area: IAP, Manah, and Serrana, the results were 69%, 72%, and 56% respectively for promoters and 3%, 5%, and 2% Detractors. Now for the products of Food Service & Food Ingredients, the results were 63% to 10% for Promoters and Detractors. The NPS is also used among Bunge’s own departments, to show the degree of satisfaction felt by one in relation to the other and vice versa, and in relation to how requests are dealt with. The results are used to help make necessary improvements in order to obtain the best possible conditions. The majority of the Company’s departments have the NPS incorporated into their performance targets.

Information gathered from Customer service provision (especially through the SAC – Customer Service Center) and Client service provision (through the SABE – Bunge’s Specialist Service Center), is put into reports on the main difficulties and complaints encountered. These reports also helped internal initiatives to resolve specific problems, or to improve products, so as to bring them in line with the demands of Customers and Consumers. Some Departments linked to the Company’s business areas have targets that are related to levels of Consumer and Client satisfaction, as well as targets for reducing complaints relating to quality issues.   

Consumers are also consulted during the development of new products, when they are given the opportunity to express their opinion on the sensorial characteristics of a new food, on a more practical packaging, or even on the content of a specific advertising campaign. In the case of Customers, teams of specialists are often designated to them to help resolving existing or potential problems in their own plants, or to help them in the development of a new product or process.

Finally, Bunge also regularly carries out what it calls its IQPV (Quality of the Product at the Point of Sale) survey. By obtaining and analyzing various competing products available in the market, the company’s specialists try to get an idea of how Bunge’s products are positioned in relation to the competition, especially the immediate competition. Such surveys help to identify the tendencies and movements of competitors, thereby enabling Bunge to always have up-to-date products that are as good, if not better than those of its competitors, so as to ensure the satisfaction of its Customers and Consumers and gain even more of their confidence.    

In 2011, the areas dealing with Client and Customer services also took on the responsibility of monitoring the media and taking part in their different manifestations. 

Non-conformities and Privacy PR4, PR8 and PR9

The legal department of Bunge Brasil deals with issues related to fines and penalties, along with the technical areas related to the theme. All processes are analyzed and the respective legal procedures are applied. Preventively, the company operates with the objective that its activities are conducted in accordance with the laws and regulations, through risk analyzes and continuous legislation monitoring.

 When some notification  is received, the involved operating unit submits it to the  Law Department that evaluates it and, according to the issue, involves the technical areas such as:

  • Labeling: Regulatory Department;
  • Product weight : Quality Assurance Department.

In 2011, the Fertilizer and Food & Ingredients businesses, in which labeling issues are applied, did not register any case of non-conformity in terms of regulations and voluntary codes related to information and labeling of products and services, however, the Fertilizer business paid fines worth R$826,000 referring to recommendations made by the Ministry of Agriculture, and which were generated between 2007 and 2011. Nevertheless, there was a marked drop in fines for non-conformity with laws and regulations, noted in 2010 (R$307,900) and 2011 (R$9,300), governing the supply of products. Bunge did not register a single case of complaint for violating the privacy of Customers or Consumers, either received from internal sources or from external parties or even from Regulatory Agencies.PR4 and PR8

In the Food business, in 2011, there were some non-conformities observed in relation to laws and regulations governing the liquid content of some products (non-conformity with Inmetro [National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology] Norms) and in relation to the non-compliance with certain requirements set down by a Norm of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply (MAPA), which relate to the classification of vegetable oils.  In the period, a total of 22 fines were paid in relation to Inmetro’s determinations (R$138,800). The non-compliance with the requirements for Classifying Vegetable Oils, meanwhile, resulted in eight fines being paid in 2011 (R$43,700), totaling R$182,500.PR9

For non-monetary sanctions and significant fines, not considering environmental issues and non-compliance concerning the provision / use of products and services, Bunge Brasil did not register any occurrence.SO8
