Everyone is welcome at our table!

Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

At The Kraft Heinz Company we choose to welcome everyone at our table. We choose to be inclusive because diverse backgrounds and perspectives make us stronger, more thoughtful and more innovative. We demand diversity and commit to not only listening but to truly working to hear different points of view. We live our commitment by focusing on three strategic areas: hiring and growing talent from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, developing inclusive leaders, and tracking and reporting on our progress.

“To write the next chapter at Kraft Heinz, we must change how we think, act, and work together.””

— Miguel Patricio, CEO
