We’ve written a recipe for sustainability
Our passion to be the world’s greatest baker doesn’t stop at the quality of our food. It ripples through to our processes, our people, and our impact on the world around us. Sustainability isn’t a buzz word at FGF Brands, it’s built into our DNA.
With operations in Canada and the United States, we’re acutely aware of our responsibility to sustainable practices across our entire organization. To us, profit is a byproduct of doing the right thing. That’s why we’ve developed three ambitious goals that are transforming our company into one of the cleanest and most forward-thinking bakeries in the world.
