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 valued 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 in turn 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, we slowly became disconnected to how much work it takes to grow and produce food made by human hands with quality local and wholesome ingredients. And so the food service industry has long underpaid and overwork their labourers (and even forego paid sick days or offer decent health benefits) to meet broad market expectations.
At Elmo Baking Co. we aim to take part in this human sustainability and 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;
Our products will be priced to reflect this desire to support our team and to offer a quality guest experience.
But we need your help in this change! Help us make happy families and communities. 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
