Work should mean something.

Several years ago, we went on a quest to define sustainability and what it meant for our business.
Our strategic goals have long focused on areas of sustainability—from reducing waste and monitoring utilities, to increasing employee engagement and community involvement. We discovered B Corporations. Their rigorous road map to becoming a more sustainable organization resonated. We put in the hard work to fill in the gaps and evaluate our innovative work.

We are committed to supporting one another. By valuing the overall success of our partners, employees, and communities, we are creating a unique and sustainable culture. Our teammates are passionate about innovation, quality, reducing waste, and adding value.

We're all in this together. Doing business for good.

We celebrate and understand community, playing an active role in our hometown where our teammates live and work. For years, we have supported local, partnering with suppliers, makers, and other companies to lower our carbon footprint and build positive relationships. We also donate snacks and funds to local organizations as part of our mission to give back.

By pursuing B-Corp status we lowered our environmental impact, better engaged our community, improved relationships with vendors, gave team members more opportunities, all with positive social interactions in a change-driven culture.

So, what have we done? We went paperless in several departments. We replaced the lighting with LED bulbs and continued powering our facility through local wind turbines. We reduced our water usage. We recycled more food scraps, reused pallets, and refined oil onsite, keeping waste out of the landfill. We sourced raw materials locally, reducing the amount of fuel required to ship them to our facility.

In 2015, the United Nations developed 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals provide a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. The SDGs are a call to action tackling significant worldwide issues, including hunger, poverty, climate change, education, economic growth, and health. They also include a call to preserve our oceans and forests.

In 2019, our entire team voted on which SDG meant the most to them. We selected SDG 2 - Zero Hunger as our focus. We will also work towards: SDG 3 - Good Health & Well-being, SDG 4 - Quality Education, and SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption & Production.
