THE FRENCH'S FOOD COMPANY IS A DIVISION OF RB. WE ARE DEDICATED TO IMPROVING OUR PLANET.
Safety & Compliance
100% of our manufacturing sites are certified with EHS management systems. At the end of 2013, 70% of our manufacturing sites were certified to the environmental standard ISO 14001 and 66% to the safety management system OHSAS 18001.
Human rights are an absolute and universal standard and we subscribe to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Conventions on the Rights of the Child. In countries where we are present, we aim to support progress on human rights issues, particularly in areas where these may be at greater risk, in accordance with what reasonably can be expected from a commercial organization.
We have established a Global Manufacturing Standard for Responsible Production (GMS) policy and program which we launched in 2004. It includes 7 fundamental principles based on International Labor Organization (ILO) and other widely accepted standards. The principles include no child labor or forced labor, freedom of association, health, safety and environmental protection. Each of our manufacturing sites continues to aim for 100% compliance with the GMS.
SAVE THE CHILDREN
Along with our parent company, RB, we are committed to improving children’s health worldwide. Since our partnership began in 2003, we have raised over $35 million and reached 1.5 million children. Fifty percent of the donation has been raised by employees.
We are fighting to stop hunger by partnering with Feeding America®. It is a nationwide network of food banks and the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. In 2016, we donated a meal for every specially-marked bottle of French’s mustard and ketchup purchased, resulting in 11 million meals. For 2017, we will continue efforts with Feeding America.
NY YANKEES PARTNERSHIP
Our partnership with the NY Yankees has given us the opportunity to donate baseball tickets, transportation, meals, shirts, and gifts to the youths in the Boys & Girls Club of Union, Elizabeth and Plainfield NJ, as well as the Mental Health Association of Essex County. It is a charity that helps children, adults and families in dealing with mental health problems including depression, bipolar, schizophrenia and anxiety disorders.
