Segment ranking summary

Inghams operates in the agricultural products and commodities, animal proteins, and food and beverage manufacturers/processors segments. The company ranks in the middle of the pack for all its segments. As a food processor, Inghams lags behind significantly in the nutrition measurement are as it does not demonstrate it is taking responsibility in improving the availability and accessibility of healthy food nor that it markets products responsibly. In addition, the company falls behind on social inclusion due to the lack of policies committing to human rights and key labour rights. While Inghams performance on the governance and strategy and environment measurement areas is slightly better, the company still lags behind most of its peers and there remains considerable room for improvement.
