"Mars, Incorporated is a world leader in the manufacture of food products. Its brands, including "M&M's" Chocolate Candies, UNCLE BEN'S Rice, and PEDIGREE Petfoods, provide pleasure and nutrition to millions of humans and pets throughout the world. As leaders in a global food industry, we have a responsibility to assist professional communities and the media in the clear and accurate communication of sound science-based nutrition information to the general public.
Thus, we are pleased to join with Access Excellence to help communicate to teachers scientific facts and concepts about the role of nutrition in the attainment of good health. This effort is particularly timely in view of the clutter of conflicting nutrition messages which contribute to public misconceptions about specific foods and diets."
