Sustainably Sourcing Rice Far The Future

Rice is a staple for half the global population, so it needs to be protected. As the maker of UNCLE BEN’S®, the world’s largest global rice brand, we are working to create a sustainable rice supply that can help support business growth and the nutritional needs of a growing population. 

As always, we’re challenging ourselves to transform how we do business today, to help create the world we want to see tomorrow. And how our products’ rice is grown plays a big part.  

Beyond the Fridge: The Real Deal About Food Safety at Mars

From reading expiration dates on food labels to handling raw meat and using a thermometer, we generally only think about food safety when we’re in our kitchens. But what you may not know is that food safety is a global threat — with serious implications for the environment and long-term food security. Because if it’s not safe, it’s not food.

A Better World Tomorrow. And our Associates work every day to champion the importance of dinnertime by inspiring people to cook and eat together.

Every Day Is Earth Day at Mars

This year, Earth Day is dedicated to wildlife conservation and preserving our planet's biodiversity, a commitment we too share at Mars. It has never been more necessary for businesses to step up and help create a healthy planet where everyone — including all animals, big and small — thrive.

We take our responsibility seriously and pledge to create the world we want tomorrow through our actions today. Our Sustainable in a Generation plan embodies this commitment to address climate change, deforestation and habitat loss – all factors that impact animals.
