Food Dashboard

At Yum!, we continue to drive progress across our Recipe for Good priority pillars of people, food and planet. This dashboard provides an overview of the opportunities and challenges, key takeaways and material issues across the Food pillar, and was included in our latest Global Citizenship & Sustainability Report.

Opportunities & Challenges

  • Using data to better manage and respond to risks related to food safety and quality
  • Responding to consumer trends and balancing preferences for craveable menu items with commitments to improve the nutritional profile of our food
  • Creating transparency around how animals used for our food are cared for at every phase of life and communicating animal welfare practices to stakeholders

Key Takeaways

  • We added a risk-sensing tool to our food safety management system that gives us real-time visibility into potential food safety risks around the world.
  • Despite pandemic-related disruptions, in 2021, Yum! achieved our highest level of supplier compliance and performance to date.
  • We transitioned from annual to quarterly collection of animal welfare data from poultry suppliers, allowing us to better track and drive progress.
  • In 2021, we published a report on the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) landscape and continue to work with industry partners to make progress on this issue.

Aligned UN SDGs

  • Harvest, Yum!’s prepared food donation program, continues to feed people through donations to hunger relief organizations.
  • Harvest also allows us to address the challenge of food waste by diverting food from the landfill and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
