‘We are committed to offering quality foods made with the same recognizable ingredients you would find in your pantry.’

Nov. 9, 2015  In a recent announcement, we shared our commitment to eliminating four ingredient groups from our product portfolio. Our teams have been excited to work on this project and are committed to moving forward with these changes while maintaining our customers’ expectations for taste and quality.

Our current goal is to eliminate the following ingredient groups from foods made by our manufacturing subsidiary:
  • Partially hydrogenated oils and artificial trans fats. The company eliminated added trans fats from the vast majority of foods leading up to 2007. It has committed to eliminating partially hydrogenated oils — a source of trans fats — in all foods by the end of 2015.
  • Artificial (certified) dyes. The company has committed to removing artificial dyes from all foods by the end of 2015.
  • High-fructose corn syrup. The company has set a goal to eliminate high-fructose corn syrup by the end of 2016.
  • Artificial flavors. The company has set a goal to eliminate artificial flavors by the end of 2017.
