Our ability to make a positive difference in the lives of people throughout the world is virtually unlimited, and it starts with a clear focus and commitment to getting better. We have chosen to leverage our strengths: our expertise – what we refer to as “know how” – and our people.
We believe that our strongest impact and contribution to sustainability lies in the critical parts of our business – the success and diversity of our associates, feeding people, health and nutrition, our supply chain, the environment, and community engagement and impact.
