Our Corporate Social Responsibility
At ABITEC Corporation everyone plays a vital role in maintaining, improving, and promoting our social responsibility to our customers, our environment, and each other. We understand the importance of treating others fairly and the necessity to keep our environment clean and safe. We are more than just an ingredient supplier, we are people, we are families, we are philanthropists, and we are a community who supports doing good every day.
At ABITEC everyone does their part to support our community, our environment, and each other. It's not about being told or forced to do good, its about wanting to do what's right. It's the ABITEC way.
At ABITEC, we value our people and work hard to ensure we treat them fairly, provide a stable and healthy work environment, and continue to supply them opportunities to learn, grow, and develop themselves and their careers. We understand that each person and their situation is unique and we do our best to provide support and encouragement to each and every employee.
We also aim to make environmentally responsible choices through our sourcing, manufacturing, and everyday tasks. Our high quality ingredients come from natural, renewable sources, and we continually monitor our internal and external processes to ensure we support the growth and sustainability of a healthy and safe environment.
