Our people, human rights and compliance

From the farmers who supply us with ingredients to the communities where our factories are based, our business has an impact on the lives of millions of people every day.

We have a responsibility to these people to protect their rights, treat them fairly and act with honesty and integrity, in compliance with all relevant laws and ethical standards.


We support ethical business practices, respecting people's rights, and giving communities access to careers and new opportunities.


By doing so, we earn trust and live up to the high standards people and society expect of us.
