Many company's will list their mission statement on their web site. Companies will often list their mission in the "About Us" or "Investor's Relations" sections of their web sites.
You can also try Google searches to limit your terms to the company's web site. For example, you could type mission statement site:wholefoodsmarket.com to retrieve Whole Foods Market's mission statement.
Please be aware that some companies might not have a mission statement. You can also try the above Google search with terms such as values or vision. In addition, in the absence of a mission statement you can also search for an interview with the current CEO since they often articulate the company's values in these interviews.
