Gordon Food Service's Initiatives
Gordon Food Service is a multi-generational, family-managed business. Taking care of what we have been blessed with and passing it on to those who come after us embodies the Gordon family philosophy.
Gordon Food Service began as a butter-and-egg delivery business, working with local farmers to ensure a steady supply of quality products to grocers. This built a deep appreciation for the land and the people who grow the food that sustains us. It also built personal ties to the communities we worked in and served along the way—a family that includes everyone connected to the food and products we deliver.
Caring for people and protecting the Earth’s resources have been part of our business for more than a century. Partnering with responsible suppliers, being proactive in reducing our operational footprint, taking care of our employees and contributing to the communities where we live and work continues to be integral to our business success.
We continue to challenge ourselves to drive meaningful change and have a positive impact, anchoring our efforts in the broader context of today’s pressing social and environmental concerns.
