More than 100 years ago, a young Frank C. Mars started making candies in his Tacoma, Washington kitchen. From that simple beginning, his son Forrest built Mars into the mature company it is today, first by creating the MILKY WAY bar with his father and later by expanding the business overseas and diversifying into new categories like pet care and food. Today, the Mars family of Associates is 80,000 strong in 78 countries around the world. Through all that growth, we've remained a private, family-owned business, with passionate Associates who are united and guided by The Five Principles. The Five Principles are the heart of everything we do. Each one of our principles - Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom - inspires us to do our best.
