Our 11 Point Action Plan

Distribution

We will strive to produce, pack, transport, and distribute products from field to market using the most efficient means possible with the most environmentally responsible renewable fuel sources. We will systematically improve our energy efficiency, reduce our energy consumption, and reduce food-miles whenever possible.

Energy

We will strive to store, process, distribute and vend our products using energy resources in the most resourceful means possible with energy efficient best practices. We will utilize the most environmentally responsible renewable energy opportunities whenever possible such as solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal.

Climate Change

We will strive to actively reduce all production, storage, processing, and retail practices that create the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. We will measure the carbon footprint of our operations and strive for achieving carbon-neutrality in all of our business practices.

Water

We will strive to reduce our use of fresh water and optimize our operations so that all water use is as efficient as possible. We will raise awareness of regional and local water issues through education and information sharing. We commit to managing our water resources with the realization that multiple water stressors exist today.

Waste

We will strive to reduce waste at the source and treat waste in a way that sustains all living systems, through reusing, donating, recycling, and composting. We will continually redesign our operations so that eventually “waste” will be eliminated because all material will become the raw material for new products and uses.

Packaging

We will strive to implement a zero-waste approach to packaging by 1) reducing the amount of packaging we use, 2) helping develop packaging that is reusable, recyclable, and/or biodegradable, 3) considering packaging material contents, and 4) collaborating with suppliers on solutions to eliminate unsustainable packaging.

Labor

We will strive to ensure that growers and handlers of food products collaborate to guarantee basic labor rights and improvements in the lives of farm workers. We will develop company policies, procedures, training, and internal reporting structures to ensure commitment to good labor practices throughout our organization.

Animal Care

We will strive to ensure that livestock and poultry have access to clean and sufficient food and water; that their environment is not dangerous to their health. In addition, ensure that managers and caretakers are thoroughly trained, skilled and competent in animal husbandry and welfare.

Consumer Education

We will strive to provide consumers, employees, our communities, and the media accurate, useful and timely information about all of the areas listed in this document.

Governance

We will strive to review our progress toward these goals on a regular basis by conducting self audits and being transparent with all employees and the public with the results. We will actively engage in communication across the trade to solve sustainability-related challenges and will facilitate dialogue regarding action.

Organic

We recognize the many benefits of organic farming for the health of the soil, water resources, plant, animal and human communities. We will strive to source all agriculturally derived products we use in our operations from farms using organic methods and offering organically grown product lines.
