Our Goals

Our sustainability goals for 2015 are organized around three critical priorities: Climate Change, Natural Resources, and Social Value.

Climate Change

Natural Resources

Social Value

We acknowledge that the threat of climate change is among the greatest issues we face today. Using resources wisely and limiting waste is important to us – in our operations, in our supply chain, and in how our products are designed and disposed of. We value the employees, suppliers, and communities who enable us to deliver innovative sustainable foodservice products and services to businesses and consumers all over North America.
