We launched over 600 new retail and foodservice items in 2018.

Improving nutrition, well-being and food security

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. We continue to diversify our portfolio of products to offer consumers a wide range of options to meet their needs.

We have a goal to reduce sodium levels in select products within our branded retail portfolio by an average of 15 percent by 2020. In addition, we’ve implemented a clean-label initiative to simplify the ingredient statements of many of our products and have set a new innovation goal: to deliver 15 percent of sales in the year 2020 generated from products created in the last five years.
