ADM is pleased to recognize our extraordinary team of employees at the ADM Cocoa processing plant in Mississauga for earning the Company’s most significant operational award. The team’s total commitment to co-workers’ safety, producing high-quality ADM products and services, and promoting positive stewardship of the environment has set an example for ADM facilities around the world.
Workers at the facility have been recognized several times for operating a safe environment and exceeding food safety requirements. The plant has gone more than six years without any employees losing time away from work due to a safety incident.
Recognition for years of outstanding performance in these fundamental areas has energized the team to continue to do more. “We have worked very hard to protect the integrity of the products we produce while remaining focused on the safety of our colleagues,” said plant manager Mike Bodurtha. “We’re very proud of what we have achieved—but earning the award once isn’t enough for us. Our goal now is to do everything we can to earn it year after year.”
Congratulations to the Mississauga cocoa team for continuing to achieve the standard of excellence required to receive this exceptional award.
