Sustainability is firmly on the menu
Our business is based on resources that need careful sourcing and management. It's a responsibility that we take very seriously, which is why we've developed our 2025 Sustainable Protein Plan with targets rooted in science built around improved transparency and action.
We have signed the business ambition to 1.5°C committing us to net zero before 2050, and have already achieved some significant ambitions.

Business as usual is changing and consumers’ expectations have shifted considerably. There is a danger in setting easy targets and meeting them – we want to set stretching goals that drive impactful actions that become integrated into our core business practices. It’s so much more than just reporting.
In it together
We share the urgent need for meaningful step change in sustainability, so we are expanding our expertise and using innovative solutions to deliver sustainable protein choices that also tick the important boxes of taste, quality and affordability.
We want to be a leader in sustainability, so we're taking action to better measure our progress and be more transparent about it. For example, we are using advanced data collection platforms to measure standards across our supply chains and show how we're coming closer towards shared goals and our 2025 targets.
Partnership is a key theme for Hilton Foods, and our sustainability approach is no different. To help achieve our goals and targets, we put in place key collaborative initiatives with organisations, and partner with our people, customers, consumers and investors.
