Spreading goodness is a year-round activity, so we encourage you to check back frequently to see what
we’ve been up to. Find out what’s new at Annie’s:

Avoiding Toxins with Organic Valley

For many years, we’ve partnered with Organic Valley, a cooperative of more than 1,800 farm families, to provide us some of the organic cheese in our macaroni and cheese products. We were able to quantify some of the benefits of working with Organic Valley between …

Striving for Better Packaging

At Annie’s, we care about our packaging’s impact on people and the planet — and we know a lot of our consumers care about it, too. If sustainability was just about whether the package could be recycled or not, Annie’s would be doing really well: over 90% of our …

Making Packaging Improvements

We explored whether our bag-in-box packaging (such as our Cheddar Bunny box) has less environmental impact than a stand up, multi-layer plastic bag (with no box). It turns out that the non-recyclable, stand up pouch has lower lifecycle impacts across almost all categories …

Improving Manufacturing Practices

We work with several manufacturing supplier partners to make our products and get them to market. Some have been part of the Annie’s family for many years; others are new relationships forged because of product innovations. In either case, our operations team seeks out …

Measuring our Carbon Footprint

We assess our greenhouse gas emissions according to the GHG Protocol, which is the most widely used international accounting tool for businesses to quantify and manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As part of our GHG disclosure, we share emissions from three …

A thriving workplace where our people can learn and grow

Our employees are the heart of our business. We strive to provide wellness benefits that go beyond the traditional package. Through practices like flexible scheduling, telecommuting, an on-site gym, and on-site massage, we offer a workplace where employee wellness is a …

Employee Commuter Program

We know that commuting to and from work is a major contributor to transportation emissions, which in turn contribute to smog and climate change. When we moved our headquarters from Napa to Berkeley, California, we chose a facility that’s about a mile from a commuter rail …

Living “Green” in Berkeley

While we know our greatest environmental impact lies in our supply chain, we also believe it’s important to live “green” at our company headquarters in Berkeley, California. Our building is LEED gold certified. As part of our efforts, we chose the following:

Central …

Striving for Zero Waste in Berkeley

At Annie’s, we work to compost or recycle as many of our materials – like coffee grinds and paper – as we can. This year we took a look at our resource recovery numbers and realized we were using assumptions that inflated the weight of our compost. Like most companies …

Spreading Goodness by Giving Back

At Annie’s, we try to employ the engine of our business to make the food system more sustainable and the world a better place, but we know this approach doesn’t accomplish all of the changes we want to see. And we know that we can’t do it by ourselves. So, we find …
