Our Enriching Life Plan

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) 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, our plan highlights our commitment to a more sustainable food system and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Product, Planet and People

Guiding our work to 2030, our Enriching Life Plan is articulated through our three strategic pillars of Product, Planet and People. We have ambitions and targets under each pillar to ensure the food we create helps enable people to lead sustainable, healthier lifestyles.
