Fiscal Year 2020 Company Spotlight

Like so many in our 120+ year history, fiscal year 2020 is an important year for our Company and all those connected to it. We are concluding a period of significant, and necessary, transformation that has us well positioned to succeed this year and in the future.

While the business environment and categories we participate in are as competitive as ever, we believe our commitment to ensuring those that are connected to our business thrive with us is what sets us apart. Sharing our perspectives on some of the important work advancing our business with our external partners is an example of that commitment. It is why we’ve introduced a new communication vehicle – The J.M. Smucker Company Spotlight. This new communication offers perspectives from our leadership on efforts that will drive our continued growth in the year ahead and beyond.

Below is an interactive presentation of the complete Spotlight as well as videos highlighting each section. 

Thank you for your continued support - we look forwarding to thriving together in fiscal year 2020!
