Our purpose and values
In these changing times, we're working to build a positive future. A future for the farmers and people we work with, the individuals who enjoy our products - and the natural environment on which we all depend.
Our purpose is to unlock the power of food to enhance quality of life for everyone, today and for generations to come.
Driven by this purpose, we focus our energy and resources where unlocking the power of food can make the greatest difference to the lives of people and pets, protect and enhance the environment, and generate significant value for our shareholders and other stakeholders alike.
