Giving you the freedom to eat healthier has a much deeper meaning for us. We believe in responsible business practices that benefit our Associates, consumers and communities. Every consumer should have access to fresh, healthy and convenient choices and every one of our products is made with responsibly-sourced ingredients, by individuals who are treated ethically and with respect every day. Our vendors and suppliers enter into an agreement with us to ensure they operate in a socially responsible manner. Our production and agricultural Associates receive yearly wage increases, competitive benefits and opportunities that recognize their accomplishments and help them sustain a standard of living. We are committed to reducing our carbon emissions by an additional 25% in the next four years. We have implemented a transportation strategy that minimizes our carbon footprint while maximizing volume. Our refrigeration system uses ammonia refrigeration, reducing global warming impacts. We have instituted a water reduction program across our facilities, lowering consumption by 30%. We donate more than 660,000 products to food banks and community charities on an annual basis.
