B&G Foods Releases Inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Report

B&G Foods, Inc. (NYSE: BGS) announced today the release of its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report. The report outlines B&G Foods’ goals, commitments, and programs across a wide range of CSR and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

“The release of our first CSR Report is an important milestone in our ongoing journey to achieve our ESG mission and goals,” said Casey Keller, President and Chief Executive Officer of B&G Foods. “Our employees have come together to identify areas of opportunity and put together comprehensive plans to meet our aggressive five-year ESG goals. I am inspired by the commitment our employees have shown to our sustainability and social impact efforts.”

A highlight within the report is B&G Foods’ most recent philanthropic partnership with America’s Grow-a-Row (AGAR), a not-for-profit organization that grows and gleans fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables that are donated to those suffering from hunger or living in areas that lack reliable access to fresh, affordable produce. In 2023, B&G Foods’ donation to AGAR resulted in the planting, growing, harvesting and distribution of 1.25 million servings of fresh produce to communities in need across the United States.

“Our partnership with AGAR is a fantastic example of how our employees have mobilized to put our philanthropy principles into action,” said Scott Lerner, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, Secretary and Chief Compliance Officer. “Whether it was volunteering to harvest fresh fruits and vegetables or helping to distribute that fresh produce at food banks, B&G Foods is pitching in to make a difference in our communities. I look forward to continued success in support of our philanthropy principles as well steady progress toward meeting the sustainability and social impact goals set forth in our inaugural CSR report in the years to come.”

B&G Foods plans to continue to increase its public disclosures regarding the steps it has been taking to enhance its corporate social responsibility efforts and to minimize the company’s impact on the environment. B&G Foods recognizes its responsibility to support all stakeholders and provide updates on progress made toward its ESG goals.
