Summary

The baseline assessment only evaluated corporate commitments publicly disclosed in English and available during the September-October 2020 research period. While the company discloses some information in English on its website, most of its sustainability disclosure is in Spanish. However, Alicorp provides some evidence of initiatives in the environment and nutrition dimensions. In particular, the company demonstrates efforts to reduce food loss and waste, improve the nutritional quality of its products and adopt responsible marketing strategies.
