COMMITMENT TO THE COMMUNITY
At Clemens Food Group, we’re actively involved in the communities around us.
In the communities around Hatfield, Pa., and Coldwater, Mich., we’re well-known by the locals—not only for the quality products we produce, but for the quality of our interactions with people around us.
From longstanding corporate giving programs, to team member volunteer programs, to robust investments in local infrastructure, we believe in being part of our communities, not simply being located in them.
Over the past decade, Country View Family Farms and Clemens Development have constructed and expanded farming operations, creating hundreds of new jobs in rural areas of the Northeast.
- CVFF also supports many local 4H and FFA activities and believes strongly in helping to develop the farmers of tomorrow.
- In Coldwater, MI, Clemens Food Group was instrumental in building the Apartments at Sauk Trail, a nine building apartment complex to help meet the housing needs of the 800 employees working at the processing plant.
- In June 2022, we opened our new Smoked Meats plant in Hatfield, PA a $228M investment.
At Clemens Food Group, we believe in stewardship. We believe in taking care of our people, our animals, our environment, and the communities around us.
Since 1895, we have supported local communities through product donations, volunteering, and financial contributions. Each year, our organization gives 10% of the profits back to the communities we serve.
We’re proud to support hundreds of charities and nonprofit organizations across our communities and those touched by our team members through our CFG Serves program.
CFG SERVES – TEAM MEMBER GIVING
In addition to our corporate donations, we also encourage our team members to participate in stewardship opportunities throughout each year.
Our team members regularly volunteer for good causes, participating in events, volunteering with nonprofits, and championing causes they’re passionate about. And when they do so, we offer monetary donations to chosen charities based on their logged volunteer hours.
We don’t give for recognition. We give because we believe it’s right. Stewardship is one of our core values—something we strive to live up to in many ways. And giving back to the communities around us is just one expression of that.
