All of our sustainability programs are based on rigorous internal policies and systems as well as widely accepted international standards. Due to the proliferation of standards, the related costs and corresponding resource requirements, we have selected what we and many of our stakeholders consider the best-in-class food safety, environmental and social standards in the agriculture industry. Our operating units are inspected on a regular basis by internal and external independent auditors against these strict policies and standards. Upon successful completion of the audits, the facility or operating unit is awarded the appropriate certification demonstrating compliance and our commitment to transparency.
