Our way of thinking about raw materials

Taste is dependent on the origin of our raw materials, and taste is always the main consideration when we choose our suppliers. However, taste is not the only thing that steers our operations.


Quality, the environment and social responsibility

Quality, the environment and social responsibility are examples of other aspects that have a strong impact on our search for the best possible raw materials. Since our business is strongly tied to raw materials produced far away from us, it is important for us to have long-term relations and an open dialogue with our suppliers. We want both people and the environment of our suppliers to feel good.

Close cooperation with suppliers

All the things that make up Santa Maria's products, from raw materials to packaging, should be responsibly produced and of the right quality. This is a goal we would never be able to achieve if we didn’t regularly visit our suppliers and the places where our raw materials grow. Through close cooperation and dialogue with our suppliers, we are working for a sustainable supply chain, starting from the individual farmer or worker. Read more about our way of thinking about our raw material purchases.
