ForFarmers ranks 88th out of the 350 most influential global food and agriculture companies. The Food and Agriculture Benchmark report is organised by the World Benchmarking Alliance* that assessed 350 of the world's biggest food companies on their environmental, nutritional and social impact. It sets out where the companies included stand in transforming the food system for a sustainable future.

Top performer in our sector

ForFarmers ranks 28th in the agricultural products and commodities segment, thereby sitting in the top quarter of the segment ranking. Moreover, the report describes ForFarmers as a top performer among the companies involved in feed production. ForFarmers is praised for showcasing leading practices in sustainability and governance and strategy and performs above average in the environment and social inclusion areas. Unlike many of our peers, we have set a target to reduce our Scope 3 emissions from feed materials.

Acknowledgement as well as encouragement

Nick Major, Corporate Affairs Director said: "Of course the report also encourages ForFarmers to go further, particularly in regard to explaining our role in improving food security but to be acknowledged as outperforming our direct peers in the animal feed sector on sustainability in such an influential report is great news."
