Equitable Food Initiative announces that EFI-certified NatureSweet Tomatoes has earned a Communitas Award for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility.
“NatureSweet has always been a company that has gone above and beyond in their commitment to social responsibility, as was evident in how they supported their associates during the Covid-19 pandemic,” stated LeAnne Ruzzamenti, director of marketing and communications for EFI.
In addition to its Covid-19 measures, NatureSweet has invested up to $5 million in food donations, as well as donated over 1.3 million pounds of produce to food banks across the United States and to communities in Mexico. The company has also donated safety kits to communities where it operates, further reinforcing that people are its first priority.
NatureSweet has five EFI-certified locations throughout the United States and Mexico and earned its first certification in 2016. Through EFI, NatureSweet has worked to transform the lives of agricultural workers by providing training, tools, and a work environment to actively collaborate with management for higher levels of assurance to customers and consumers. It actively engages in a professional mission of “tomatoes raised right” that puts people at the center of what it does.
