Corporate Responsibility overview 2017

As a global company serving 75 million customers every day, our corporate responsibility strategy is always evolving and we are excited to announce our new commitments as outlined in Better Tomorrow 2025.

In my role as the regional chairman I am proud that UK and Ireland is at the forefront of these efforts. With the help and dedication of our employees, customers and clients, our corporate responsibility achievements support our mission to enhance the quality of life of everyone we serve.

Better Tomorrow 2025 will help us accomplish this, by bringing coherence to our actions as a responsible business, whether that be in relation to animal welfare, sourcing in a responsible way, promoting gender equality or avoiding food waste in our operations.
