Our snacks are made safely, responsibly and mindfully. It’s how our consumers can feel confident that the snacks they consumer and enjoy are safe and high quality.

In 2023, we continued having a high percentage of our manufacturers and suppliers certified to food safety schemes that are benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). This further supports our ability to offer consumers safe, high-quality snacks they can enjoy and feel good about.

We design consumer safety into all our products right from the outset so they are safe for consumption. To do so, we use a comprehensive quality management system to set standards that ensure the integrity of our snacks and their ingredients.

This includes advanced, science-based risk identification and management processes that help us assess and control factors that could potentially compromise processes and finished products, covering ingredients and packaging alike.

Our management standards covering raw materials, processes and end products are of the highest quality. And our food safety systems are based on the internationally recognized and recommended Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system.

Altogether, our comprehensive approach to safety means our consumers can continue to trust our products.

Giving our people ongoing training is an important aspect of embedding our standards into our business. In 2023, we trained approximately 8,800 employees and approximately 4,200 suppliers on issues concerning food quality and safety. And auditors of our manufacturing sites and suppliers alike review training records to confirm that all relevant training is completed and recorded.

We review our product quality policies every year based on industry benchmarking and best practices. We also make our own supplier quality expectations publicly available.


Many of our food safety scientists are subject matter experts on the boards of global standard-setting organizations such as the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FARRP), European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHDG) and the GFSI.

We are proud to be part of the GFSI as it continues to benchmark and raise food safety standards around the world. Since joining the GFSI in 2006, we have implemented its schemes at all of our plants and expect our suppliers to do so as well. We promote our participation in GFSI with our stakeholders and across the industry.

We support food safety at the highest level of our organization: Our Chairman and CEO is currently co-chair of the CGF Food Safety Coalition, which helps steward the food safety agenda across the world.
