Sustainable in
Every Way

Lamb Weston has been making some of the world’s favorite foods—french fries and other frozen potato products—for more than 70 years. We’ve succeeded by staying true to our roots: taking care of our employees, working with farmers to help them grow potatoes responsibly, and conserving energy and water in our production facilities.

In our 2021 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report, Lamb Weston moves into the next phase of our ESG journey with new goals that we hope to achieve by 2030. These goals are focused on the four parts of our value chain: Protect, Plant, Produce, and Provide.
