Sustainability: Our Enriching Life Plan

As one of the UK’s leading food producers and home to some of the nation’s most loved and iconic brands, we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to forge a healthier future for our planet and everyone on it.  

Our sustainability strategy, known as our Enriching Life Plan, encompasses everything we touch, from the products we make to the ingredients we source and the communities we operate in. With our purpose, enriching life through food, at its heart, the plan highlights our commitment to a more sustainable food system and, in turn, the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Guiding our work to 2030, it sets out our ambitions to make more nutritious and sustainable food, contribute to a healthier planet and nourish the lives of our colleagues and communities.

Our Approach and Governance

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are constantly evolving and our strategy is responsive to this, dealing with both changing and emerging threats. As businesses, policy makers, non-governmental organisations, scientists and citizens understand the issues better, new international and national policies, and voluntary and industry frameworks are being developed to help drive action. 


Our Products – Making Nutritious and Sustainable Food

Fully aligning with our commercial and brand strategies, the product work helps consumers to lead healthier and more sustainable lifestyles by creating foods that are rich in nutrients, more sustainable, and free of unnecessary or problematic packaging.


Our Planet – Contributing to a Healthier Planet

With strengthened commitments on tackling climate change and deforestation, improving the sustainability of farming practices and reducing waste, the planet pillar of our Enriching Life Plan contributes to a healthier planet by nurturing the natural resources that we rely on to make our food. 


Our People – Nourishing the Lives of Our Colleagues and Communities

Within our people pillar we are building the culture, skills and capabilities needed to help our business, the UK food sector and wider economy thrive in the future and give back to the communities where we operate. 


Our Baked-in Behaviours and Policies

We are passionate about running our business in the right way and we have a strong set of principles to help us do that. We call them our Baked-in Behaviours. To be clear about what we stand for in these areas and what we expect from our colleagues, suppliers and partners, we have a range of policies which we regularly review to ensure they reflect our drive for continuous improvement.
