McCormick & Company would like to express our sincere condolences to the families and communities impacted by the tragic loss of life we are experiencing in this country. We stand in unity with the Black community and the millions of people around the world who believe that there is absolutely no place in our society for racism, discrimination and injustice.
At McCormick we believe in the “Power of People” and understand that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. More than ever, we must become champions for change and seek to understand the voices that are peacefully protesting and pushing for equal rights across the country. The fear, pain, anxiety and suffering being felt by the Black community is simply heartbreaking.
Yesterday, McCormick hosted our annual global Diversity & Inclusion day. We stand with our 12,000 employees around the world who celebrate the power of diversity and we stand with our communities who are coming together united by a common understanding that we all have a responsibility to reject racism, violence and bigotry of any kind.
Let’s focus on what brings us together. Let’s move forward with compassion, care for one another, empathy and the determination to make this world a better place for all.
