H.J. Heinz Company Foundation
The H.J. Heinz Company Foundation strives to make a positive impact in the global community through strategic investments to promote the health and nutritional needs of children and families in areas where our employees live and work.
The Foundation makes a difference in thousands of lives each year through our focus on three core initiatives:
- Heinz Micronutrient Campaign, our signature global Corporate Social Responsibility program;
- Strategic Grants Program that focuses on nutrition, diversity and healthy communities; and
- Heinz employee engagement that benefits people and communities
Heinz Micronutrient Campaign
The Heinz Micronutrient Campaign (HMC) is a groundbreaking initiative that helps malnourished children around the world live healthier lives. The Campaign develops and distributes vitamin and mineral powders and other innovative products that treat and prevent iron-deficiency anemia.
The HMC has provided these life-enhancing supplements to 3.5 million children in 15 developing nations. The HMC is developing sustainable models for eradicating malnutrition through partnerships with local governments and NGOs.
In 2010, the HMC was introduced in Africa and in 2011, the program expanded to the Western Hemisphere with a program in Haiti. The HMC is focused on tailoring solutions that deliver essential vitamins and minerals to meet the diverse cultural needs of the regions where we operate.
