Over 70 years ago, Forrest E. Mars had an idea far ahead of its time: a business that creates lasting benefits for all of its stakeholders. As our business grows, we want everyone in the extended Mars, Incorporated family—Associates, suppliers, customers and community members—to benefit. Forrest’s vision of ‘mutuality’ remains the foundation of our business today. It’s one of the Five Principles of Mars that unites and guides us across geographies, languages, cultures, and generations. By putting the principles of Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency, and Freedom into action every day, we know Mars is delivering growth we can all be proud of.
Visit mars.com, and download the annual Principles in Action Summary (http://www.mars.com/global/about-mars...) to read about how we’re bringing the Five Principles to life. You’ll see where we've made progress, where our challenges exist, and our exciting plans for the future.
