Rimini, 1 April 2022 – MARR S.p.A. (Milan: MARR.MI), the leading company in Italy in in the sale and distribution of food and non-food products to the foodservice, has published, within the legal deadline, the Sustainability Report - Consolidated Non-Financial Statement 2021 pursuant to Legislative Decree 254 / 2016, approved by the Board of Directors on March 15th.
The Sustainability Report is available in the Sustainability section of the Company's website through the link www.marr.it/sostenibilita/bilancio-di-sostenibilita.
It is significant that fifty years ago MARR was born, whose name is an acronym (Magazzini Alimentari Riuniti Riminesi) which still represents today, although the Company has long been a national leader in the supply market to the foodservice, the choice to remain always and everywhere close to the Territories and therefore to Partners and Customers.
This founding characteristic of MARR is also well represented in the 2021 edition of the Sustainability Report, whose reference values place customer care at the center of their strategies and activities, which inspires all sustainability objectives.
The pillars on which the development strategies are based, which are integrated and closely connected, are confirmed and re-focused in the Sustainability Report.
In addition to the correct and complete implementation of best practices in the field of Governance, MARR maintains, in its vision of the future, precise references: the enhancement of People as a fundamental asset in relations with the Market, the priority of sustainability values in the selection of supply sources, the concrete and rigorous contribution to respect for the environment and the ecosystem within the supply chain to which it is part, the real support for the reduction of waste in the supply chain itself, the maintenance of a strong focus on profitability through the optimization of processes.
These references are shared by the entire commercial, logistics, management and administrative organization of the Company and each, within the scope of their responsibilities, also supported by IT tools, is called upon to provide their concrete contribution.
The benefits that derive from this widespread and integrated approach are in favour both of the Stakeholders, and therefore of the People and the community, but also of the economic and environmental system with which we come into daily contact.
