Innovations with fiber, protein and vitamins help company move toward ESG goal of creating better days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., March 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg Company is on track toward achieving its ambitious goal of creating better days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030, including nourishing 1 billion people. Since 2015, Kellogg has nourished more than 989 million people by offering delicious and accessible food that deliver nutrients of need, address micronutrient deficiencies and help to keep people fed and fulfilled.
Kellogg's Better Days® Promise is the company's environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy, which promises to advance sustainable and equitable access to food by addressing the intersection of wellbeing, hunger, sustainability, and equity, diversity and inclusion.
Our changing climate is impacting the health of people and reducing crop yields, leading to greater food insecurity. Many diverse and underserved communities are disproportionally impacted by climate change and now face higher barriers to health and access to nutritious foods. And these same communities are most at risk for undernutrition, hidden hunger and obesity.
For these reasons, Kellogg's Better Days® Promise is committed to nourishing with affordable and accessible foods that meet our Kellogg Global Nutrition Criteria (KGNC), delivering nutrients of need such as fiber and protein while also addressing micronutrient deficiency.
55% of our foods meet Kellogg Global Nutrition Criteria
58% of our foods are at least a good source of fiber (per CODEX1)
46% of our foods contain at least one micronutrient (per regional regulations)
90% of our foods carry front of pack nutrition labeling
"Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, was the original wellbeing visionary," said Neil McGowan, Kellogg Company's Senior Director of Global Food Systems. "Kellogg's Better Days® is our promise to continue this legacy by designing foods that deliver physical, emotional and societal wellbeing, contributing to an improved food system."
