The Mars Five Principles of Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom are the foundation of our culture and our approach to business. They unite us across geographies, languages, cultures and generations.Over the years, they have been reviewed and refined, yet in essence they remain unchanged. The Five Principles are the real explanation for our success and the formula for our future. They express our vision of not only of who we are, but where - and what - we want to be. Simply put, they are our inspiration. Put into practice daily by our Associates all over the world, the Five Principles have developed into a practical, effective and unique way of doing business that collectively and individually sets Mars apart. For further information please see our Five Principles section.
At Mars, we are proud of the fact that we make some of the world’s best-loved chocolate, but we are much more than a chocolate company. To know Mars, Incorporated is to understand our heritage, the Five Principles that guide us every day and are at the heart of how we operate, and have helped us become a successful global food business. Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom are the Five Principles that unite us across generations, geographies, languages and cultures. As a private, family-owned business, we have the freedom to invest in the long-term and to make sustainable business decisions that will help us endure for generations to come. Our business purpose, first expressed by Forrest E. Mars, Sr. in the early 1930s, calls upon us to create mutual benefits for all of our stakeholders. This purpose, and the stewardship of the Mars Family, inspires us to put our Principles into action in everything we do, and strive to make a difference to people and the planet through our performance. To learn more, please read our Principles in Action Summary.
As one of our Five Principles, quality is our goal in everything we set out to achieve: the products we make, the services we provide and the people who make up the Mars team. For Mars, quality is measurable. Quality means guaranteeing consumers that our brands will live up to their expectations - time after time, without deviation. Quality is the result of unremitting attention to detail at every stage from picking the right raw materials to selecting Mars people who are excited by quality in their work. We can only deliver the quality we promise consumers if everyone at Mars is focused on this principle. For further information, please see our Quality section.
