Reinventing Food for Humanity

Bowls of food

We’re on a mission to inspire everyone to eat better for themselves and the planet.

We know everything on our plates has an impact on our health and the health of our planet. The good news? Small changes can make a big difference.

A passion for food

We have a passion for food, stretching back to 1838 when Carl Heinrich Knorr founded the company with a mission to bring better and more flavoursome food to our tables.

His deep interest in innovation pioneered drying techniques enabling the soup mixes and bouillon we know today. This passion for food and innovative approach are still the fundamental drivers of the brand.

A force for good

Knorr has the ambition to be a force for good and to get food that is good for people and the planet on 7 billion plates by 2025. This aligns with Unilever’s overarching purpose to make sustainable living commonplace.

Knorr has been working with suppliers and farmers to grow key ingredients following the Unilever Sustainable Agriculture Code for more than 10 years with 95% of vegetables and herbs sustainably sourced. The commitment is to get to 100% and to implement regenerative agriculture principles in the way 80% of key ingredients are grown by 2026.

27,000 farming communities helped with sustainable practices

A greener food future

As Knorr continues the journey to inspire people to Eat for Good, more plant-based products and recipes featuring Future 50 Foods will be on shelves and websites. Programmes, like the Recepedia Change the world by changing what’s on your plate platform, are helping people cook and eat meals that are better for them and the planet.
