What We're Working On

We've made small but important steps:

Food Made With Integrity

Nourishing a Healthy Planet

  • Recycling packaging scrap generated at the mill with Ridwell.
  • On-site renewable energy with a 120 kW solar system
  • Electric Vehicle charging stations
  • Committing to climate change action with the Climate Collaborative
  • Partnering with Energy Trust of Oregon on world-class efficiency in our operations
  • Focusing on waste reduction by eliminating disposables, and empowering reuse with our Pallet Recovery Operations
  • Joining Pacific Coast Food Waste Commitment to cut food waste in half by 2030
  • Launched a Food Reduction Challenge, which reduced food waste by more than 70% on the manufacturing line where a quick-win idea was tested

Sourcing Responsibly

  • Fueling our fleet with renewable diesel, which reduces 80% of carbon emissions
  • Advancing soil health and regenerative agriculture
  • Optimizing our packaging to minimize impact:
    • US-made, BPA-free packaging is right-sized to reduce material and resealable to uphold product quality, to reduce food waste
    • Supporting Oregon’s Recycling Modernization Act
    • Eliminated paper lids from our Oatmeal Cups, saving an estimated 170,000 pounds of waste per year.
