World-class safety

The safety of our people and products always comes first.

We know that food and operational safety is an ever-moving target, requiring constant vigilance and a coordinated effort from our entire team.

We’ve fostered a company culture that prioritizes employee safety and product quality above all else. How? By encouraging each person to take ownership for safety.

Who is responsible for safety? “I am”

Our priorities

Keeping our people safe

When we prioritize safety as a company, we put our people first.

Prioritizing partnerships

We have each other’s backs. When we approach safety as a team effort, we create a better work environment.

Communicating effectively

Open communication across all teams helps us keep up with multiple compliance standards, sanitization protocols, and overall good manufacturing practices.

Backed by the numbers

Our safety ratings speak for themselves. To keep our standards high year-after-year across our vast network, we bake safety into our operating culture as a corner pillar.
