We’re committed, and until our mission – Health for all, Hunger for none – is accomplished, we won’t rest.

For over 160 years, the Bayer brand has stood as a beacon of competence, quality, and trust, it’s our most powerful intangible asset. As we evolve, we continue our journey towards becoming an even more dynamic, outward-oriented, and human-centric brand. We’re creating the best Bayer for our farmers, patients, consumers, investors, employees and other stakeholders. Dynamic Shared Ownership means we’re all owners and ambassadors of our brand and are empowered to be bolder, more creative, and inspiring in everything we say and do.

Bayer Cross

The Bayer Cross is more than just an iconic symbol. It carries the reputation of our company, fostering positive perceptions and driving value across all businesses, audiences and geographies. It’s an unmistakeable and outstanding asset that creates financial value across our company.


The blue side of the Bayer Cross represents science, performance, and reliability, while the green side symbolizes innovation, sustainability, and a focus on life.


Whenever or wherever our customers see the Cross, they know they’re getting the Bayer benefit. Innovative. Reliable. Trustworthy. Pushing towards a world where health and nutrition is open for all. 

Health for all, Hunger for none

Our mission – Health for all, Hunger for none – is far more than a tagline. It’s a bold declaration of our goal. This mission ties our brand directly to our business and our unique portfolio as a leading global brand in the fields of health and nutrition, while also aligning with our sustainability strategy. It underscores and reinforces our commitments, from all of us, to making a difference, one step at a time.
