Our mission is to make people happy one pastry at a time. This mission extends to the way we do business by providing a work environment where people are happy and find joy in their work. In the area of sustainability we believe that in as much as we pay attention to our use of recyclable materials and reusable energies, we also need to focus on the human element
We believe in ‘human sustainability
’ - people who are fulfilled by their employment and find authentic joy in their work which we believe will help create happy families and communities. Unfortunately the food service industry has been the victim of a lesser known side effect of mass manufacturing. As food became seamingly cheaper, the market slowly became disconnected to how much work it takes to grow, produce, and make food locally and by human hands. The result is that the food service sector has long been forced to underpay and overwork their labourers (and even forgo paid sick days or offer decent health benefits) to meet market expectations.
At Elmo Baking Co. we aim to take part in this human sustainability. Here’s how we plan to do it:
Our team members will be paid more than the minimum wage
Our team members will work no more than 40 hours a week and be offered health benefits
But we need your help in this change! Help us make happy families and communities by supporting our business. If you'd like to become a wholesale partner or team member please get in touch with us be sending us an e-mail at email@example.com
