Spotlight on Communities
Food companies are in a unique position to help the communities where they operate. Such corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts are especially apparent at the end of each year as companies step up their contributions but increasingly, community engagement has become a year-round CSR pillar. Beyond providing mutual benefits for both company and community, community engagement serves as an important signal to investors and employees that companies care about more than just the bottom line.
- Major manufacturers address sweeping issues like world hunger, disaster relief and education.
- Smaller food processors and manufacturers put community relations at the forefront.
- Foodservice and retail channels rely on an engaged and active base to remain relevant.
