Red tractor in field

Since the 1950s, potato agriculture has been at the heart of our business and today we are proud to work closely with around 3,500 farmers across the world. But the future of our food systems are at risk against a backdrop of growing global populations, climate change, soil degradation, biodiversity loss, and food waste. Together, our ability to reimagine a more sustainable way to grow our core ingredient is therefore a key part of our journey towards planet-friendly food.

Key highlights against our commitments.
