Sustainable sourcing

Our commitment is to sustainably source 100 percent of our 10 priority ingredients by 2020. ** Progress numbers may vary from year to year due to hanges in suppliers, market conditions or improvements in data tracking methodology. All numbers calculated based on volume except fiber packaging, which is based on percent of spend sustainably sourced.
**** Palm oil target 100% by FY2015; baseline year FY2010 for palm oil (baseline FY2014 for all other ingredients). 

Sustainable sourcing engagement strategies

We invest directly at the origin for crops like vanilla and cocoa to improve smallholder farmer livelihoods and ingredient quality.

sourcing continuous improvement graphic

We advance the sustainability of dairy and row crops by engaging with farmers to reduce the environmental impact of agriculture. We ensure sustainable sourcing of these commodities by documenting continuous improvement over time.

sourcing verification graphic

We increase the sustainability of palm oil, fiber packaging and sugarcane by working across the industry to improve practices. We verify progress by purchasing certified sustainable raw materials or completing independent verification in high-risk regions.
