Producing safe, quality products to help feed the world

Producing some of the most-trusted and well-known food products in the world inspires us every day.

We believe good food should be available to everyone – food that is affordable, safe, nutritious and delicious. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued to produce food to help feed the world while also advancing our sodium reduction, clean label and innovation efforts. We also continued to diversify our portfolio of products to offer consumers a wide range of options to meet their needs.

Our goal was to reduce sodium levels in select products within our branded retail portfolio by an average of 15 percent by 2020. In addition, our clean-label initiative simplifies the ingredient statements of many of our products, and our innovation goal focused on delivering 15 percent of sales in the year 2020 generated from products created in the last five years.
