Supplier Requirements

People trust us to deliver nutritious, delicious, safe, and affordable food. To make that possible, we hold our suppliers to high standards and trust them to care as much about quality as we do.

Committed to responsible sourcing

People want to know what’s in their food, where it came from, and how it was made. Our Responsible Sourcing Program focuses on reducing social and environmental risks in our supply chain—and making sure our suppliers share our commitment.

Our commitment to human rights

All people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. We’re working to ensure our partners provide a workplace that respects the basic human rights and freedoms of all employees, while also combating child labor, forced labor, discrimination, and other human rights risks in our supply chain.

Food safety and quality requirements

Our suppliers play a vital role in helping us make safe, affordable, high-quality food that has been crafted with care.

To help our current and potential partners meet this goal, we developed these requirements and expectations based on internal and external food safety and quality standards, regulatory requirements, benchmarking with other food company programs, reviews of partner performance, and critical issues for the food industry. It’s important to know that these are the minimum requirements and can change at any time.
