BioGaia’s international networks of researchers, suppliers and distributors is the basis of the business model. A large part of BioGaia’s influence and ability to make a difference is therefore in the value chain, outside the company’s own operations. BioGaia therefore collaborates continuously with its partners to steer operations in a sustainable direction.
Responsible suppliers and distributors
BioGaia’s business model is based on long- term, close relationships with a small number of suppliers, which provide conditions for close collaboration and thus increased insight into their business. Sustainability aspects such as quality, safety and environmental impact are handled in the ongoing dialogue. Some of BioGaia’s distributors also inspect suppliers themselves as part of their own sustainability work. Läs mer
