To advance our mission and vision with honesty, fairness and integrity, we are committed to six guiding principles. When conducting business around the world, we must always strive to:
Care for our customers, our consumers and the world we live in.
We are driven by the intense, competitive spirit of the marketplace, but we direct this spirit toward solutions that benefit both our company and our constituents. We see our success as inextricably linked to that of our customers, consumers and communities.
Sell only products we can be proud of.
The true test of our standards is our own consumption and endorsement of the products we sell. Without reservation. Our confidence helps ensure the quality of our products, from the moment we purchase ingredients to the moment it reaches the consumer's hand.
Speak with truth and candor.
We tell the whole story, not just what's convenient to our individual goals. In addition to being clear, honest and accurate, we are responsible for ensuring our communications are understood.
Win with diversity and inclusion.
We embrace people with diverse backgrounds, traits and ways of thinking. Our diversity brings new perspectives into the workplace and encourages innovation, as well as the ability to identify new market opportunities.
Balance short-term and long-term.
In every decision, we weigh both short-term and long-term risks and benefits. Maintaining this balance helps sustain our growth and ensures our ideas and solutions are relevant both now and in the future.
Respect others and succeed together.
Our mutual success depends on mutual respect, inside and outside the company. It requires people who are capable of working together as part of a team or informal collaboration.While our company is built on individual excellence, we also recognize the importance and value of teamwork in turning our goals into accomplishments.
