Creating value together

Our purpose is to provide safe, nutritious and affordable food, and clothing that is great value for money. In doing these things well, we know we are doing good, helping to make millions of people’s lives better.

We live and breathe our values through the work we do every day. They guide our behaviour and help us deliver long-term benefits for our people, suppliers, communities, customers and the environment.

Our value chain

We work to understand and focus our actions on what matters most; what is material to our businesses and our stakeholders, including society and the planet.

Making a positive contribution

Our businesses aim to make a lasting contribution to society. Our values help us to articulate the long-term benefits we can deliver for our people, suppliers, communities, customers and the environment.

Investing in our people

We prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our employees, contractors and others we work with, and aim to cultivate diverse and inclusive workplaces where everyone is respected, supported and empowered to fulfil their potential.

Supporting society and strengthening our supply chains

We respect the rights of people within and beyond our operations, develop products that help to support healthy lifestyles and aim to strengthen the communities where our suppliers live and work.

Respecting the environment

We work hard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, use natural resources efficiently and promote ecosystems, biodiversity and animal health and welfare.
