About Mars

Mars was founded in 1911 when Frank C. Mars started selling home-made candy in Tacoma, Washington, USA. Our family-owned business moved to the UK and in 1962 Forrest Mars Jr. built the biggest chocolate bar factory in the world in Veghel, the Netherlands. Today we are one of the largest privately owned businesses in the world with net sales of over $33 billion! We operate in 74 countries with more than 346 locations and own many household name brands. The biggest brands internationally are PEDIGREE®, ROYAL CANIN®, M&M’s®, SNICKERS® and DOVE®.

Mars, Incorporated is one of the world’s leading branded manufactures. All the choices we make are guided by our Five Principles: Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom. We refer to our people as Associates instead of employees, because we ask people to govern the business as if it is their own, to make quality decisions, to be accountable for upholding our values and high standards and to treat others appropriately. Our goal is to create growth we are proud of by being the most mutual company in the world.
