Respecting Human Rights

At McCormick, we are committed to respecting all human rights. Our Global Human Rights Policy was released in 2021 and represents our minimum standards for working conditions and human rights that applies to our employees, suppliers, and business partners. Many of the standards set forth in McCormick’s policy align with basic working conditions and human rights concepts advanced by the International Labor Organization and the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Ethical Supply Chains

Many of McCormick’s agricultural products are acquired from suppliers who ultimately source raw materials from farming communities. It has always been important that materials used in our products are obtained through ethical and fair labor conditions.

Ethical Supply Chains

As a global leader in flavor, we know we play an important role in protecting those who work within our supply chain. McCormick follows a disciplined approach that is anchored by a Global Human Rights Policy. We address this matter both internally to provide safe and fair working conditions for our employees and with partners. We’re proud members of the United Nations Global Compact and the Consumer Goods Forum (“CGF”), and we work to uphold those values in everything we do.

As we continue to advance our human rights and labor practices, our Global Human Rights Policy ensures our commitment to implement universal sustainability principles that meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. The policy was developed through a collaborative process that included our Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Human Resources, Senior Leadership Council, Legal, Chief Sustainability Officer, Purpose-led Performance Leadership Team and was promoted through a variety of internal communications.
