Reach your goals with a supplier committed to sustainability in our own business

At Ardent Mills, we are committed to sustainability within our own operations. You can be confident you’re partnering with a supplier focused on nourishing the planet and stewarding it toward a better future.


Here’s a look at our commitments to sustainability now and in the future:

1) Enroll one million acres into our regenerative agriculture program by the end of 2025 and 2.5 million by the end of 2030.

2) Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and establish a science-based target for emission reduction. We began measuring our carbon output in 2021 so that we can show progress.

3) Reduce waste by enrolling 100% of our facilities in composting and recycling diversion programs and divert 80% of waste from our network away from landfills by 2030.

4) Shift to renewable energy by utilizing 50% renewable energy2 across the organization by 2025.
