LIVING OUR VALUES

WORDS TO LIVE BY


At Basic American Foods, our Values are more than words on a page, they are words that guide us and tie us together. Our Values inspire us to do our jobs well, to respect each other, to always work as a team, and to celebrate and enjoy our accomplishments. We believe that the people who work here are what make our company so great and we are as passionate about keeping our employees happy as we are about making food that people love to make and love to eat.

OUR VALUES

MEAN WHAT YOU SAY

Our word is our bond—it’s the only way to build trust and real relationships. So we always honor our commitments and are honest, clear and direct in our communication.

FIND A WAY

We take ownership of everything we do and always hold ourselves personally accountable to ensure we are able to deliver the best results possible.

LET YOUR INNER HERO SHINE

We believe everyone has courage and greatness within, so we work hard to foster an environment where innovative thinking is encouraged and risk-taking is embraced.

IT TAKES A TEAM

We believe in the power of diverse perspectives and know that collaboration always takes us further. Within our walls and with our customers and suppliers, we partner to create more amazing food.

MAKE THINGS BETTER

We are committed to making a meaningful difference— in our employees’ lives, for our customers, and in the larger communities where we work and live.

KEEP IT GOING

We all win when our business thrives. So we make decisions that will ensure a lasting, prosperous company.

We believe that all heroes should be recognized and rewarded for their contributions.

Values Hero Recognition Program

Our employees embody the spirit of our company and live our values every day and this unique program gives everyone an opportunity to recognize and reward those who do so. In addition to monthly and quarterly awards, we celebrate our annual BAF Values Hero Cup Award Winner at our National Sales Meeting.
