Corporate Social Responsibility

Edita’s people are its most valuable asset, and the company strives to acknowledge this by offering a safe and rewarding employee experience. Edita supports its employees’ professional growth by regularly providing a variety of trainings and learning opportunities.

Sales workshops are consistently delivered to the team, each to improve a different set of skills. . In 2019, Edita collaborated with Beacon Training UK in delivering a two-day Train the Trainer (TOT) workshop. Eight middle management were certified as internal trainers and went on to train 103 sales supervisors in people-management skills. Four employees were certified to deliver “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” training.

In total, during 2019 Edita delivered training to 1,140 Edita workers, across 2,280 training days. The training boosted employee efficiency at the workplace, and encouraged bcritical thinking, task-orientation and proactivity.


Joining the UN Global Compact (UNGC) has provided Edita with an excellent opportunity to assess its current sustainability practices, identify strengths, and select areas on which to focus developmental efforts. The UNGC encourages corporations and relevant stakeholders to adopt improved more sustainable business and environmental practices and in turn, benefit their communities while maintaining desired operational levels. Edita finalized a sustainability framework aligned with the UNGC’s principles and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically choosing six goals that align with its mission as a major industrial snack foods company and a socially responsible entity.
