Corporate Sustainability

Gordon Food Service Corporate Sustainability

We’re committed to our growth and yours, and by sustaining our financial performance, we’re able to serve our customers, provide jobs, and support communities today, and in the future. 

The following objectives are paramount to the economic sustainability of Gordon Food Service and our ability to impact environmental and social initiatives.

  • Our ultimate purpose is to serve our customers - we are committed to providing the products, tools, and services necessary to help our customers succeed.
  • Organizational efficiency is central to the economic vitality of our company, and ultimately allows us to achieve more with less. This requires a strategic balance of targeted technology and an incentive-driven workforce. We are committed to controlling costs, improving productivity, and minimizing waste.
  • We bring over 115 years of experience to the table. Being responsible about our growth is an explicit objective that balances aggressive sales growth with conservative financial management practices.
  • We’re committed to growing both today and in the future. We actively manage today's business by constantly measuring ourselves against targeted key performance metrics, and the performance of our competitors. We protect business assets with effective risk management and by insisting on the highest standards of internal control and accountability. We pursue tomorrow's success via disciplined strategic and financial planning.
