We seek continuous improvement in our manufacturing to drive cost savings and higher returns, providing extra
fuel for growth as cash is redeployed in new strategic opportunities.
Growth that’s responsible involves having a positive social impact and reduced environmental footprint and enhancing our reputation.
Our business model
QOLAC believes profitable growth should also be responsible growth. That approach lies at the heart of our
business model. It guides our approach to how we do business and how we meet the growing consumer demand for
brands that act responsibly in a world of finite resources.
Our business model begins with consumer insight that informs brand innovation, often with partners in
our supply chain, to create products we take to market supported by marketing and advertising
across a range of distribution channels.
