Our Sustainability Framework & Well-Being Strategy

Our Mission is to lead the future of snacking by offering the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way. We call this Snacking Made Right.

Snacking Made Right is the lens through which we view ESG and a framework for our sustainability and well-being agendas.

The right snack…

This is about giving people a wide range of high-quality snacks so they can make great informed choices. From indulgent treats to wholesome bites, we want to create snacks that people truly love and feel good about.

…for the right moment…

This is about making it easy for people to enjoy snacks wherever they are in the world, whatever time of day and to do so mindfully.

…made the right way

This is about taking the lead in making sure our snacks are not only right for people but also right for the planet – from the raw materials we rely on to the communities we live in and work with and the climate we all need to care for.

    Right Snack

    We’re committed to offering a wide range of delicious, high-quality snacks, and to keep on improving them to meet our customers’ well-being needs.

    We offer a broad range of delicious, high-quality snacks – from indulgent bites to wholesome bars. We want to make sure our range keeps satisfying the diverse needs of millions of consumers around the world. So for example, we are continuing to reduce sugar, sodium and fat in snacks; increase portion control options; and extend our focus on encouraging mindful snacking.

    People have always loved snacks but their lives are changing – becoming busier than ever, more health and planet conscious, too. People increasingly want to feel good about their snacks – not only that they taste delicious but also that they are good for their minds and bodies, and that they are not doing harm to the planet. That’s why we keep renovating and innovating our portfolio to satisfy consumers’ current and changing well-being needs, with offers such as Better for You, Authentic Natural and Simple, Functional Nutrition and Permissible Indulgence.

    Right Moment

    We want to help consumers easily enjoy the right snacks throughout their day, and inspire them to snack mindfully so they can savor and feel good about each and every snack.


    So what do we mean by mindful snacking? It is about eating with intention and attention, focusing on the present moment, and savoring how the food tastes so you really enjoy it. In short, it’s about making the most of snacking in-the-moment. This has never been more important, given that we are all snacking more often.

    Snacking mindfully involves a few simple steps that add up to real all-around enjoyment:

    • Minimize distractions
    • Portion out your snack
    • Focus on the smell and taste
    • Notice the textures
    • Chew thoroughly
    • Finish one bite before starting the next
    We are placing the Snack Mindfully portion icon on all packs, for all snacks, globally by 2025. We established this goal in 2019 and aligned our approach globally to begin activation in 2020.


    We have an expanding range of portion control options – snacks that are 200 calories or less and are individually wrapped. Individually wrapped products enable people to enjoy the snacks they love, become more mindful when they eat, and help manage their calories.

    We are mindful of balancing our growth in portion control with our commitment to reducing waste and plastic packaging. We focus on optimizing and reducing packaging as well as using post-consumer materials wherever possible and enabling recycling.

    As well as expanding our portion control options, we aim to place portion guidance on all packs, for all snacks, globally by 2025.

    Right Way

    We’re focused on making our snacks more sustainably by using less energy, water and waste, with ingredients consumers know and trust.


    From climate change to population growth, our global food system faces numerous challenges which in turn puts pressure on agriculture. Resources and livelihoods are at stake, as is the future of the planet. We’re mindful, too, that consumers are interested in the provenance of ingredients and increasingly expect good agricultural practices from their brands. These challenges are complex and lasting solutions call for the concerted collaboration of all concerned – from companies to farming communities to governments to social, scientific and environmental experts.


    We’re working to build a thriving ingredient supply chain to promote more sustainable supplies of high-quality cocoa, wheat and other raw materials we use to create the snacks our consumers love. We use our reach and global presence to work with outside experts to give farmers a voice. Through our signature programs, Cocoa Life and Harmony Wheat, we aim to make a positive long-term impact on the farms, communities and environments where our main raw materials are grown. More broadly, we are addressing key areas where we can have the most impact, looking to increase transparency, and collaborating with our key suppliers and others to promote widespread change so that sustainability becomes the normal way to do business around the world.


    Our commitment to animal welfare involves setting clear expectations with our suppliers and taking feedback from external experts to drive continuous improvement.

Our ESG Priorities

We have set clear 2025 goals* that put us on the path to pursue bold long-term ambitions.

Our strategic focus areas, goals and ambitions map to the areas of our business best positioned to drive progress, and are aligned to what we believe is significant to our long-term business success. They also support our vision to lead the future of snacking and our aim to reduce our environmental footprint and have a positive lasting impact on people and communities as we continue to grow.
