Up to 1/3 of global greenhouse gas emissions stems from the food system, an estimated 80% of which comes from agriculture.[1]

Our commitment to advance regenerative agriculture on 1 million acres by 2030 builds on decades of work by employees past and present to prioritize the people and places growing our ingredients.
