Our Cookie Policy


Please read this Cookie Policy carefully. It contains important information about who we are and how we use cookies on our website. This Cookie Policy should be read in connection with our Privacy Policy [INSERT LINK] which sets out why and how we collect, stored and use your personal information. 

This Cookie Policy is issued on behalf of Noble Foods. When we mention “Noble Foods”, “we”, “us” or “our” in this Cookie Policy, we are referring to the relevant Noble Foods company responsible for controlling your personal data.   

We or our permitted service providers use cookies and similar technology (such as pixels, local storage objects and similar devices) when you interact with our website or when we send you communications, to enable effective and efficient operation of our website, and to improve the performance and enhance your user experience. This Cookie Policy explains how we do that. We do update this Cookie Policy from time to time and updated will be posted to this page. You may also be presented with our cookies consent banner where we change our cookies or there is a change in law which requires us to update our processes. This version of the Cookie Policy was last updated 15 June 2021.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. We use the term “cookies” in this Cookie Policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way (including pixels summarised below).

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well the website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your user identifier. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use the website.

What is a pixel?

Tracking pixels are transparent graphic images (sometimes called web beacons or tracking beacons) that are placed on certain pages of our website. A tracking pixel collects certain electronic information from your webpage’s header, such as your IP address or browser and your location, which may be forwarded to an advertising platform for the purpose of providing advertising to you that is based on your personal interests. We also use tracking pixels provided by certain tools to allow us to see how you interact with our email marketing or website e.g. to determine whether a recipient opened the email or accessed a certain link.

The cookies we use

The list below represents a comprehensive list of all cookies set on our website. 

Noble Foods may use the following categories of cookies:

Strictly necessary

These are cookies that are required to enable the core operation of our websites or provide services explicitly requested by you. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our websites, provide security features, network management and accessibility. You may disable these by changing your browser settings but this may impact how the website functions and it may not operate properly.


They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our websites when they are using it. This can help us improve the service or create and analyse content tests to allow us to optimise the experience for future users. These cookies collect information in a way that does not identify anyone.

Basic Interactions & Functionality

These are used to recognise you when you return to our website, as well as allowing you to access certain features on our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). If you disable these cookies, certain features on our website may not operate properly.

Experience Enhancement

These trackers help us to provide a personalized user experience by improving the quality of your preference management options, and by enabling the interaction with external networks and platforms.

Targeting & Advertising 

These record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed to you more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

We may combine the information we collect through cookies and pixel tags with other information we have collected from you, based on our legitimate interest, as this information may be used to improve our website, personalize your online experience, tailor our communications with you, determine the effectiveness of our advertising, and for other internal business purposes.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Consent to our use of cookies

The law allows us to store cookies on your computer if they are essential to the operation of our website. We need your consent to set non-essential cookies on your computer.

When you use our website for the first time we give you the opportunity to accept or decline non-essential cookies. You can withdraw your consent at any time by clicking the “Tracking Preferences” tab in the bottom right corner of your web browser.
