Simplot Foods Sustainability

Our 4Sight 2030 Goals

At Simplot Foods, our involvement in the entire value chain—from seed production to processing—gives us a unique opportunity and responsibility to work more sustainably. In 2020, we laid out a 10-year plan to add specificity and accountability to our ongoing sustainability efforts, company-wide and around the world. We chose four primary areas of impact:


Reduce energy use by 15% per ton of product


Reduce carbon emissions by 20% per ton of product


Reduce freshwater intake by 15% per ton of product


Achieve zero waste to landfill in our food processing plants, globally

Learn more about how we’re driving to meet these goals at our 4Sight 2030 page at

Sustainability in Action

When you grow up in agriculture, the link between the health of the land, air and water to your own well-being couldn’t be more clear. Our founder, J.R. Simplot, worked the land from an early age, developing a respect for resources that remains a core value of our company to this day.
