SmithFoods mission is to treat our customers, associates, and owners according to Christ’s example. The milk stool represents our corporate mission well. Each of the three legs stands for one of the following important groups.
- Our customers: We strive to exceed their expectations by giving them our best products and services. Our very existence depends upon their satisfaction.
- Our associates: We strive to provide a challenging and rewarding work environment that encourages learning and growth in an atmosphere of love, dignity, and respect.
- Our owners: We strive to be good stewards of the resources at our disposal, including the necessary capital our owners provide.
The seat of the stool—its firm foundation—represents SmithFoods’ commitment to treat everyone according to the example of Christ.
Our teamwork approach makes SmithFoods Richmond a great place to work. As we are genuinely interested in our Associates welfare and success.
Because of the quality of our products and service, our Company is highly respected throughout the dairy industry. We want our Associates to have pride in our Company, our products and the quality of our work, it takes a team of dedicated people to provide quality products and service at competitive prices.
