‘Strides in fries, green in scene’: Lamb Weston unveils latest Global Sustainability Report

With a focus on making fries and making strides, Lamb Weston Holdings issued its fifth annual Global Sustainability Report today, providing updates on the company’s performance against key sustainability and people initiatives during its fiscal year 2023.

This is the first global consolidated report for the company, which has officially integrated its operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa following an acquisition in February 2023.

“This global report demonstrates the progress we’re making around the world – and how we’re elevating the best of what we’re doing to improve our communities and the planet,” said Mike Smith, Chief Operating Officer, Lamb Weston. “Our team is focused on making meaningful changes to build a more resilient business and secure a long-term future for our people, our planet and Lamb Weston.”

At Lamb Weston, we know how to make great fries — we’ve been leading the industry for nearly 75 years. This report demonstrates the ways we bring our industry expertise to bear for the betterment of our communities around the world,” said President and CEO Tom Werner in the introduction.

“We’re committed to making strides toward a better, more sustainable future because it’s critical to the long term success of our business and the role we play in our communities as an economic driver, a top employer, and a community builder.”

Werner further pointed out, “we know that we have a responsibility to drive financial performance while contributing positively to society and the environment. We take that responsibility seriously and I hope this report provides you with a sense of the confidence I have in Lamb Weston’s bright future.”

The report provides critical updates on metrics in three key areas of focus:

  • People: investing in the development and wellbeing of team members and providing for the communities where the company operates.
  • Food: offering customers and consumers safe, high quality potato products, made responsibly.
  • Planet: reducing environmental impact and conserving natural resources through regenerative agricultural programs and efficient manufacturing.

The full report also establishes new long-term sustainability targets for the global organization and provides a final progress update on the company’s previously reported 2030 goals. The Global Sustainability Report is available now at https://esg.lambweston.com.
