How ethical is Onken?

Onken is a brand of yoghurt which has a good score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Yoghurt Ratings Table.

With a good GSG score, Onken can be considered an ethical brand. Onken hasn’t yet applied for Ethical Accreditation, but its high score would mean that if it did, it would be able to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark on its products.

We encourage other companies in the Yoghurt sector to follow Onken’s example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

What does Onken do?

Onken was created by Enno Onken and makes a range of yoghurts.

In which areas does Onken perform well?

Onken performs well for its Environmental Report, as its parent company, Emmi, has a Sustainability Report containing numerous targets for carbon emissions, food waste, packaging and more. It also gets a top score for GM, as there is documented evidence that the brand does not permit GMOS from its suppliers.

Onken also scores well across our criteria for Nuclear, Fossil Fuels, Animal Welfare, Political Donations and Armaments. Find out more about our ethical criteria.

What can Onken do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Onken is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Yoghurt Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As Onken already receives a top score in the Ethical Yoghurt sector, The Good Shopping Guide encourages it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After sending in its application, Onken will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide Ethical Mark. Onken could further improve its score by gaining Vegetarian and Organic certification.
