These World-Changing Companies Are in Your Supermarket

Aug 20, 2016

By now, we're pretty much all aware that it takes a lot of know-how, money and energy to get food and other products on to our supermarket shelves—and that big food and consumer-goods companies have a major impact on the global workforce and the environment. The good news: As more consumers express concern over where their lattes and deodorant come from, more companies are responding, by rethinking their supply chains in ways that are better for their communities--and in many cases, better for their bottom line.

This year's Fortune Change the World List features several companies whose work is making an impact in a grocery store near you. We feature six of them here; click here to see our full list of 50 companies.
