Raw MaterialsMaking the Most of Raw Materials

All our raw materials pass through a multi-stage selection process, which involves our experts across a number of specialist functions. 
Our "Raw Materials Policy", which we developed in 2006, documents our careful handling of raw materials and lays down internationally standardized criteria for their selection.
