Grown for Good

As a global leader in flavor, McCormick is committed to promoting continuous improvement for the sustainable sourcing of herbs and spices. To underscore our commitment to sustainable sourcing, we have created our Grown for Good framework, which drives community resilience, including economic stability for farmers, gender equality and women's empowerment. Under the framework, we developed our own third-party verified sustainability standard, which includes requirements linked to biodiversity conservation and regenerative farming practices.

Investments in Farming Communities

McCormick works with our suppliers to increase the direct economic benefits generated by farmers and to remove unnecessary intermediaries. This increases the efficiency of the supply chain and allows farmers to access better prices and services like health insurance, interest-free loans and access to inputs that reduce costs for farmers (thus increasing their profits). A premium or bonus incentive is usually paid to farmers for sustainable products.

Grown for Good Certified

McCormick’s Grown for Good standard was created and first received industry-recognized benchmarking at FSA silver-level by the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform in 2021. By the end of 2023, it had been rolled out in 10 countries and to nearly 19,000 farmers. We believe this success is driven by its flexibility, adaptation to supply chains with multiple farmers and the support provided for implementation through regionally-located consultants.
