How we integrate Trusted Partner in our business

Our group strategy is designed to ensure our business remains resilient and can continue to support our vision – to lead the way in bringing innovative, great-tasting, freshly prepared food to people around the world, in a sustainable way. Trusted Partner underpins this through one of the four strategic elements: Trust.

Management of our Trusted Partner strategy is coordinated through the Group ESG Executive Committee, which is chaired by the Head of Corporate Affairs. Overall ownership of the ESG strategy sits with our Chief People Officer, supported by our CFO as Board sponsor. The Executive Committee was formalised in early 2021 and is comprised of Director and other senior-level sponsors from Corporate Affairs, Procurement, Technical, Operations, Legal, Finance, our Customer and Business Divisions, including representatives from the US and China.
