Our Commitment to Communities

McCormick is committed to doing what’s right for the communities where we live, work, operate and source.

For years, McCormick has worked to build resilience and improve livelihoods in farming communities where our ingredients are grown. In turn, we continue to demonstrate progress toward reaching our smallholder farmer resilience goal through a wide range of globe-spanning initiatives. As a result, we’re proud to say we’ve helped increase the resilience of nearly 23,000 smallholder farmers who grow our iconic herbs and spices while strengthening our supply chain during times of volatility and uncertainty around the world.

Collaborations Matter

By collaborating with non-governmental organizations and international development agencies on training and infrastructure development, we’ve been able to make tailored investments in community resilience across Vietnam, Indonesia, Turkey, Madagascar and India where our five iconic herbs and spices are grown.

Supporting through COVID

During the pandemic, McCormick provided COVID-related health training to almost 7,000 households.




Championing Human Rights

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 new Global Human Rights Policy, maintained through rigorous supplier certification, and enforced through strict oversight. 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.
