Making a difference is an every day task at Bimbo Bakeries USA. We are grateful for the resources and talent entrusted to us by the communities in which we work. We strive to be good stewards of the environment and to support our neighbors in meaningful ways every day.
We seek to make a difference every day by promoting the adoption of a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating a well balanced diet, as well as frequent physical activity.
As the official bread supplier to the U.S. Olympic Team, we have been proudly delivering our wholesome and delicious breads to the U.S. Olympic Training Centers since 2004. We have also sponsored several athletes, supporting their unwavering dedication to achievement. For the London 2012 Olympic Games, we proudly sponsored two Olympians, Misty May-Treanor and Abby Wambach.
In terms of our products, we try to offer a mix of nutritious and deliciously indulgent products for every occasion. In recent years we have been innovators in the marketplace by introducing new products with added benefits. This has included prebiotic breads, products with whole grains and extra fiber, products with phytosterols for cholesterol reduction, as well as products containing Omega 3 for cardiovascular health.
We have also introduced products with less than 100 calories per serving, including our fabulous Sandwich Thins, which help consumers keep track of their caloric intake. Current initiatives under implementation include producing only 0g trans fat products and developing products with less sodium and more whole grains.
We take great responsibility for lowering our carbon footprint. We currently have several programs in place to help us increase our water, power and energy savings, reduce our air emissions and have an environmentally responsible waste management system. We do this with a combination of investing in more efficient equipment and training. We are currently testing the use of Hybrid trucks in our fleet. Our first was tested in Southern California with much success in 2008. Since then, we have introduced two additional hybrid truck routes, which are in Oregon and Denver.
