Maternal health/breastfeeding

Reported progress

We have continued to make strides in supporting maternal health and breastfeeding and just recently launched a new program for US-based employees called Milk Stork. This resource ships any pumped breast milk home when employees travel for business either within the US or internationally, and Cargill covers the cost for the service. If employees travel overnight for business, Milk Stork will ship a TSA-approved cooler directly to the employees place of accommodation.
