Vikas Mittal, Managing Director, India, South East Asia, South Korea, Taiwan at McCain Foods said, “Our 2020 Sustainability Report (Global & India) is aimed at transparently highlighting the interventions and impact created so far across our sustainability priorities.

As the challenges posed by climate change become more acute, the global food system needs to transform significantly. It needs to do so to feed a growing population while reducing its impact on nature. Over the years, McCain food has been successfully driving new models of sustainable farming across the globe while reducing environmental footprints.
