GRAINS OF THE WORLD

Grains are an essential food source all over the world

Grains are a staple in our cereals, but more than that they’re a staple in a growing world’s dietary choices. The world has more than 50,000 edible plants but only three—rice, wheat and corn— provide 60% of the world’s food energy and are a staple to 4 billion people.1

There are three primary reasons that grains are so popular:

  1. They’re affordable and provide essential nutrients at a low cost.
  2. They’re adaptable, resilient and use less natural resources than other food.
  3. And lastly, they’re accessible and can be stored for long periods of time in their natural forms.

We’re working hard to sustainably source and use grains to provide you with the food you want, in the way you want it.
