Partnering with our customers to help them succeed has always been a top priority for Wyandot Snacks, but tantamount to our success in business is our sense of duty to each other and the world we all share. That’s why we work hard to ensure that when a waste stream is disposed of that it is recycled with the least amount of impact to the environment. Accomplishing this goal took years of finding and partnering with the right local and national companies who are also committed to this charge. However, since doing so, our progress toward reducing our environmental impact has come in leaps and bounds.
Wyandot Snacks would like to take this opportunity to recognize our sustainability partners and the work we have accomplished together in 2020.
