As the world’s biggest veterinary health group and the maker of many pet foods, we know how much animals — both big and small — are loved across the world.
We believe that the global economy—and global businesses like ours—needs to do much more to ensure that work empowers people. We believe we can, and should, play a role in increasing opportunity for people to thrive in the workplaces and communities we touch.
At Mars, we seek to promote and respect human rights across our entire value chain. From factory workers in Chicago to farmers in Cote D’Ivoire, we believe everyone touched by our business should be treated with dignity, fairness and respect.
At Mars, we believe everyone working within our extended supply chains should earn a sufficient income to maintain a decent standard of living. This is our goal. Although our relationship with smallholder farmers is rarely direct, we know they are critical for our business. Not only are we focused on helping smallholder farmers prosper today, we’re also working to ensure that the next generation is motivated to stay connected to farming as a profession that allows them to thrive tomorrow.
We’re acting now to advance gender equity in our workplaces, communities where we source raw materials and the marketplace.
