“We firmly believe these core values are what makes The Maschhoffs unique, and our pork much more than just a commodity. The partnership report is a report card of trust, providing a level of clarity and transparency. We look forward to sharing more about our progress in the future” notes CEO and President, Dr. Bradley Wolter.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to The Maschhoffs is about being good stewards for the environment, consumers and in our communities in which we operate. It is sharing with the world that we provide a sustainable, safe product to consumers.
The information within the policies, performance and continuous improvement culture outlined in each section provides the reader with visibility and accountability into how the core values are translated into actions.
“Our promise to our employees, customers, partners, and consumers, is a continued commitment to sharing insights on how our commitment to our core values goes beyond words on paper” says Chairman Ken Maschhoff.
The Maschhoffs appreciates the support from Sustainable Environmental Consultants and their EcoPractices platform for the opportunity to measure, verify, and report the environmental footprint of our home farm and two production partners (Northwest IA and Central IL).
In closing, a sincere thank you to the National Pork Board for this opportunity and to Context for the collaboration. At The Maschhoffs, we accept the responsibility to take care of our people, pigs, environment, and communities by bringing our core values to life through our actions every day. Above all, it allows us to tell our story through our core values, The Maschhoffs way” says Wolter.
