At Kellogg Company, achieving food security is at the heart of our commitment to society. But looking at hunger in isolation only addresses one part of the problem. Food security is intertwined with other major challenges. Namely, the impact of climate, the dilemma of food waste and the depletion of our natural resources. If we’re going to tackle food security, we must understand all the root causes and work holistically to address them through a number of nature-based and other solutions, including boosting soil health, protecting biodiversity, halting deforestation and mitigating greenhouse gasses.
To do this, we must start with farmers, providing tools to grow more food, and assisting them in minimizing food waste and its impact on the environment. Our diverse, plant-based foods play a key role in addressing these goals as we work across our value chain to nurture our planet.
We also should provide foods that address physical, emotional and societal wellbeing, and help feed people facing hunger today. That’s why we’re working diligently toward our ambitious Kellogg’s® Better Days commitment to create Better Days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030. To do so, we intend to nurture people and our planet by supporting 1 million farmers, especially women smallholders and workers, through programs focused on climate, social and financial literacy.
We’ll also continue respecting the natural limits of our planet by conserving natural resources all along our value chain by meeting our science-based climate targets, responsibly sourcing our ingredients, reducing organic waste and providing sustainable packaging that is reusable, recyclable or compostable.
Details of how we’re Nurturing our Planet are included on our Corporate Responsibility website. To learn more, click here.
