Farmer Communities and Livelihoods

McCormick is deeply engaged with the farming communities where our ingredients are grown. These strong ties allow us to improve the reliability and environmental impact of our business while supporting farming communities and their livelihoods.

Farmer Livelihoods

Farmer Livelihoods

Our goal is to increase the resilience of 90% of smallholder farmers that grow our key iconic herbs and spices, as measured by increasing skills and capacity, income, access to financial services, education and nutrition and health. Currently, we’re working with nearly 23,000 farmers to improve livelihoods, with a goal of increasing resilience for 35,000 farmers by 2025.

Supplier Diversity

Diversity helps drive the unique flavors behind our products. As such, we actively incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion in our approach to our external stakeholders, especially our suppliers. We seek to empower women and minority groups in our supply chain and support a diverse network of suppliers. Our supplier diversity program helps ensure our ingredients are sourced from a mix of suppliers while providing opportunities and access to underrepresented groups. We have a formal program to grow our spend with diverse suppliers. In an effort to increase transparency with our stakeholders, we continue to evolve our program to better serve our supply chain needs and are committed to providing quarterly supplier diversity spend reports to customers looking to understand the impact of the goods provided to them.

As part of this commitment, we work with major supplier diversity organizations:

  • Women Presidents’ Educational Organization (WPEO)
  • Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
  • Canadian Aboriginal & Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC)
  • Capital Region Minority Supplier Development Council (CRMSDC)
  • Diverse Manufacturing Supply Chain Alliance (DMSCA)
  • National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA)
  • National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
  • Women’s Enterprise Connect International (WEConnect)
