Conserving Water

Water conservation has been an important area of focus for us for many years. We employ programs and technologies to conserve this natural resource. Our first priority is to ensure the safety of our food products, and we will never reduce water usage in situations where food safety could be compromised.

We are pleased with the water conservation efforts made and the results we have achieved so far. Our water conservation efforts, along with several facility closures, have led to a water usage reduction of 10.9 percent since October 2004.  Learn More >>
