Keeping an Eye on 2025
The Need to Go Above and Beyond
Our mission is a simple one. Since 2003, Bel has been improving its practices in efforts to be a better steward of the environment and a positive force in the communities we serve. We’ve taken measures to reduce our environmental footprint at our production plants, and upped our efforts in the local communities we serve. But we need to go further than that.
Four Pillars to Make a Better World
We named our program “We care in every portion” because every piece of our business — from the farm to our suppliers to our products — are a part of this plan. And we created these four pillars to help guide us in our decisions all the way up to 2025.
- Working for the Well-Being of People — We care about the people we work with and the people who work for Bel, along wih the people that buy our products.
- Committing to Sustainable Farming — The future depends on practices that take environmental impact into consideration and act accordingly.
- Promoting Caring Nutrition — We want to enhance the nutritional value of our products and help people develop healthier eating habits and lifestyles.
- Reducing Our Environmental Footprint — Across our entire business, we are working to reduce the impact our products and processes have on the environment.
Keeping Us Accountable
Our commitment to CSR means that we must hold ourselves responsible. So we publish our progress on our scorecard. See what we’re accomplished so far with our four pillars.
Review our 2017 Activities
2017 was a busy year. The Bel Foundation supported and funded 26 charitable initiatives in 16 countries. See what we’ve done to promote the nutrition and well-being of children.
Moving Ahead on Sustainability and Health
This year, we took another step to help people live a healthier life. Effective June 1, 2018, Mini Babybel, The Laughing Cow, and Boursin are produced using dairy ingredients from dairy farms where farmers have pledged not to treat their cows with any artificial growth hormones (rBST).
Raising the Bar with FARM
We believe that all parts of our supply chain need to do business responsibly. Bel Brands only sources milk from U.S. farmers who are members of Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM).

Bel Brands USA has proudly adopted the U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment, affirming to our customers, our consumers and the global marketplace, Bel Brands’ pledge to responsible dairy production as we nourish the communities we serve. For more information about the U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment,
