At Mars Drinks, we bring delicious beverages to people at work, all around the world. But we deliver much more. Our portfolio of products helps create great moments at work— moments to connect and share, to recharge, reflect and get inspired. By focusing entirely on the workplace, we strive to help businesses and their people make the most of their day in nearly every working environment.
The technology products, including KLIX® and FLAVIA®, serve the needs of different types of work environments, while the consumable products, including offerings in the coffee, tea, and soup categories, are the key to creating moments at work, both personal and communal. With U.S. headquarters in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and U.K. headquarters in Basingstoke, Mars Drinks employs Associates across eight countries working to bring great tasting moments to the world’s workplaces.
Our Principles in Action
We are committed to helping our customers on their sustainability journey. By the end of 2014, we will plan to purchase 100 percent of our green coffee beans from certified sources, and will follow this by purchasing 100 percent of our black tea and cocoa from certified sources by 2015.
In 2012, Mars Drinks introduced our first fully recyclable Freshpack in North America across two tea varieties, English Breakfast and Earl Grey. A packaging innovation enabled the removal of the aluminum foil layer from the Freshpacks, moving from three materials to a single, fully recyclable plastic. To make it even easier for customers to recycle them, we also launched a “Recycle your Freshpacks” website in North America. We are striving to have 100 percent of our Freshpacks fully recyclable by the end of 2015.
We also have a strong focus on our Associates and operations. The Mars Volunteer Program is active at our sites, and our two factories have achieved zero production waste to landfill and are committed to reductions in energy consumption.
