Operating responsible supply chains



We believe supply chains that support the global food system must be sustainable, balancing feeding the world today with the needs of future generations. This includes environmental, social and economic dimensions. Sustainable supply chains must respect people and human rights, promote good agricultural practices, provide viable livelihoods, reduce environmental impacts, treat animals humanely, and produce safe and wholesome food.
