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.
