Partnerships and collective action

Farmer carrying basket of produce


Our global stakeholder network includes farmers, local communities, suppliers, industry associations, consumers, non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, academia, multilateral organizations, governments, customers, our employees, investors and shareholders.

We are in dialogue regularly with these stakeholders through various platforms, forums and meetings to help advance our Creating Shared Value strategy and to support our intention to advance regenerative food systems at scale, which also supports the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. In 2023, we partnered with World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that specializes in providing meals for people who have been affected by catastrophic events.
