Operating more efficiently.

McCormick Commitment to Operation Impact and Efficiencies

We Impact Flavor, Not The Environment

How we perform as a company is directly related to how we operate as global citizens. Our flavors come from the earth and ultimately return to it. So out of respect for the planet we work to do more with less and leave as small a footprint as we can.

Being Socially Responsible And Sustaining It

Our operational goals and management systems are all laser-focused on continuous improvement. Every person in our company owns this, and our Sustainability and Social Responsibility Committee represents people throughout our company.

The Committee’s mission is to direct McCormick’s sustainability and social responsibility activities. Starting in 2005, we set corporate social responsibility goals and began improving how we share our accomplishments and best practices.
