The recent turmoil in communities across the United States has served as stark reminders of the disparity and racial injustice that still haunts this country and the world. We join others and raise our voices to demand changes that comprehensively address racial injustice and discrimination.
As a global and diverse organization, the J.R. Simplot Company also recognizes the important role we play in creating a culture of acceptance, support and inclusion. We have employees and customers of every race, ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation and will not tolerate hatred or discrimination in our Company or the divisiveness it causes in the communities we serve around the world. Our diversity is a crucial aspect of our purpose to contribute to feeding the world.
Today, we pledge to accelerate our efforts to make meaningful change within our organization. We do this with the clear understanding that our cultural diversity is a core strength that drives creativity and innovation across our organization. The voices, ideas and contributions of our workforce will be key in our ongoing examination of our approach to diversity and inclusion. We celebrate all of those around the world who are committed to the effort to build a better tomorrow by working to eradicate discrimination wherever it lives.
The J.R. Simplot Company’s top priority is the health and safety of our employees, customers, and communities where we work.
