    Goals / Remit

    We know the importance that food plays in people's lives – the power it has to bring people, families and communities together. That's why our purpose brings together all the things which we value as a company - "Celebrating real connections through delicious, planet-friendly food". Making a difference to today, tomorrow and for generations to come. At McCain, sustainability goes to the heart of our purpose, which means putting agronomy at the forefront of all we do to ensure healthier soils which lead to more sustainably sourced food. It means reducing our climate impact and supporting the communities where we operate. By delivering on our purpose and commitments, we aim to grow our business while helping to strengthen food and agricultural systems for a more sustainable future.
