At the beginning, Mr. Lawrence had mentioned that he had been to Wuhan for three times, but all visits happened during the negotiation, so it was the first visit to McCormick (Wuhan) since the new company was established. He was obliged to the original WAPC leaders and staff’s stay and their constant efforts after the integration of the new company and spoke highly of the current achievements. As a global leader in the manufacture of spices, seasonings and flavors, he said, every staff in McCormick should share the common values, namely ethical behavior, teamwork, high performance，innovation and concern for one another, to show the power of the people. What is more, in order to bring passion to flavor，we also should pay attention to carry out social responsibility by producing high-quality food and providing feasible solutions for our customer. At last，Mr Lawrence with his own experience showed McCormick’s sustainable development power and the great room for improvement. He was thankful the rare cool summer in Wuhan welcomed his visit.
