We’re a family business that’s been making products for people (and the pets that people love) for more than 100 years. When you think of Mars,
chocolate probably comes to mind—and for good reason. Thanks to brands like M&M’s®, Snickers® and Twix®, chocolate is certainly a big part of who we are.
But, we’re about more.
Mars is behind some of the world’s best loved brands in the world including Pedigree®, Royal Canin®, Dolmio®, Whiskas®, Schmackos®, Skittles®,
Extra® and Uncle Ben’s®. We’re 80,000 self-proclaimed Martians—we’re pet obsessed, confectionery lovers, foodies, dream chasers and community
builders— working across 78 different countries.
We’re a diverse, extended family that wakes up every morning ready to make an impact—on our business and on the world.
And, we do it by keeping The Five Principles at the heart of everything we do: Quality, Efficiency, Responsibility, Mutuality and Freedom.
These principles inform our decisions and unite us across geographies, languages, cultures and generations. You
can learn more about our Five Principles and how we put them into action here http://www.mars.com/global/about-us/five-principles
