Code of Ethics

WMF Code of Ethics

Foreword from the Executive Leadership Team

For more than 165 years, the brands that make up the WMF have represented the best in cooking, drinking and dining. Every day, hundreds of millions of people around the world use WMF, Silit and Kaiser products to prepare food, cook, bake, eat and drink in the comfort of their own home. And when they are not doing that, they are enjoying coffee specialities and foods prepared by the hotel and catering industry using products from WMF, Schaerer, Curtis or Hepp.

Almost 6,000 employees provide culinary pleasure at over 40 locations worldwide. Our success is thanks to the focused work of all our colleagues who make sure that we remain innovative and oriented towards our customers and that we adhere to our promises. For more than 165 years they have worked to provide consistent quality and ensure that we adhere to ethical principles.

As part of Groupe SEB, our shared values shape the way we run our business. In our relationships with all stakeholders - employees, shareholders, customers, suppliers, consumers, public authorities, associations etc. - we are always guided by these values. That is why, in a context which is becoming increasingly global and complex, we felt that it had become essential for us to establish a Code of Ethics. This Code provides a real reference structure for all our activities, defining individual and group rules of conduct to guide and inspire us in the choices we make in order to keep our values and commitments alive on a daily basis. It is also the bearer of an ambition for continuous improvement, enabling us to make constant progress in the respect of our principles all over the world. No matter which position we hold in the company, each one of us must respect the rules of the Code of Ethics. We are all ambassadors of our company and we must each make our own contribution, through the way we work, to maintaining the integrity and reputation of the Group.
