our priorities

Embedding modern slavery and land right principles

We have taken significant strides forward in recent years to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing human rights internationally such as zero tolerance to modern slavery and land rights, particularly in southern Africa. Our commitment to these areas will continue as we move forward.

Educating consumers on sugar and health

As a responsible business, we are actively contributing to the debate about the role sugar can play in the diet through our Making Sense of Sugar campaign which has been expanded to reach a global audience.

Making Sense of Sugar helps inform and educate people about sugar and the role it can play as part of a healthy balanced diet. Our aim is to provide factual information based on robust science for everyone so that we can all make informed choices about what we choose to consume.


Having recently expanded our campaign beyond the UK to launch in China, Latin America, Malawi, Spain, Tanzania and Zambia, we take a look at specific dietary guidance in some of our markets, as well as providing information to help bust common myths about sugar as an ingredient.
