Bonduelle is a family-run group established in 1853 in France. Our ambition is to be the world reference in ‘well living’ through vegetable products.

Our vegetables, grown over an area of more than 128,000 hectares, are sold in 100 countries in all forms, under all types of brands, through all distribution channels and using all available technologies: canned, frozen, pasteurized, dried, fresh/ready-to-use.

Launched in 2002, our CSR strategy is structured around five objectives to be met by 2025:

Caring, with our farmer partners, for cultivated land.

Reducing our environmental impact, from field to plate.

Encouraging as many people as possible to eat healthily and sustainably, and increasing affordability.

Ensuring the ‘well-living’ of employees and local communities.

Encouraging involvement across the board.
