Our Stories

Contribute to a Healthier Planet

We believe that we will do better by doing good for the planet–that there is a close connection between productive operations and environmental stewardship. We are rethinking the way we operate our business to minimize our impact on the environment by finding innovative ways to grow, source, make, package and transport our foods and beverages. We are reaching out to local farmers, governments and community groups to improve agricultural practices and improve crop yields through advanced agricultural technologies and practices. We are forming local partnerships to better manage watersheds and improve access to safe water. We are deploying processes and technologies that reduce the amount of energy and water required to manufacture our products, and that make use of alternative energy sources. This careful management of resources drives healthy business results and helps create a healthier future for our planet.
