Sustainably Sourcing Rice Far The Future

Rice is a staple for half the global population, so it needs to be protected. As the maker of UNCLE BEN’S®, the world’s largest global rice brand, we are working to create a sustainable rice supply that can help support business growth and the nutritional needs of a growing population. 

As always, we’re challenging ourselves to transform how we do business today, to help create the world we want to see tomorrow. And how our products’ rice is grown plays a big part.  

Saving Tomorrow’s Cocoa, Today

Our chocolate has been loved the world over for more than 100 years. But to ensure we can continue providing chocolate for future generations, we know sustainable cocoa production is key. 

As part of our Sustainable In A Generation Plan — which aims to ensure a healthy planet, help people thrive, and nourish wellbeing — we’re taking a deep look into every aspect of our business and how the ingredients that make our products are grown or harvested. This, of course, includes the cocoa supplied for our brands like M&Ms®, Twix®, Dove® and Snickers®.
