It’s all about our people

We continually invest in our people. It’s their bold thoughts and big hearts that make this all possible, whether that’s the communities that produce food or the families we feed.

Putting people first

We hold ourselves to the highest standards when it comes to our communities, the people who eat our food, and the farmers and employees that produce our products — they’re at the heart of it all.

Diversity and Inclusion
We actively cultivate a culture that acknowledges, respects and values all dimensions of diversity – including gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, backgrounds and beliefs.

Workplace Safety
We have a history of strong safety performance and culture, while continuously improving our manufacturing operations.

Human Rights
When human rights are protected, societies, economies and businesses thrive.
