Mars » Overview



A Global Company with Family Values

From its humble beginnings in the Tacoma, Washington kitchen of Frank Mars, Mars, Incorporated has grown into a company of global scope with six business segments including Chocolate, Petcare, Wrigley Gum and Confections, Food, Drinks and Symbioscience, generating annual revenues of $30 billion.

As a family-owned company for nearly a century, we are guided by our Five Principles: Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom. We continually strive to put our Principles in Action in everything we do: making a difference to people and the planet through performance.



Our culture

At Mars we are a family owned company and we try to make everyone feel part of one big family. Everyone is called an associate and the offices are open planned to facilitate more ad-hoc conversations. We aim to create an atmosphere where everyone can bring their best to work, and we all help each other develop and learn. Associates take on cross functional opportunities on business teams to solve challenges or work on specific areas like wellbeing, safety or environment - It’s about matching associates passions and skills with the needs.

It is really important that we also ensure we have fun at work, whether that is at monthly sales meetings or whether it is in the office at a fun day, or on a Friday when you can bring your dog into the office. Every year our associates get the chance to show their creative talent during the “Christmas Desk Challenge”.
