Taylor Farms honored with leadership award
Taylor Farms has been named the recipient of the Rabobank Award for Excellence in Corporate Leadership, which recognizes a large-scale market leader in North America that has generated strong business results while forging a lasting impact on its sector and the world at large.
Taylor Farms is a leading producer of salads and healthy fresh foods in North America with production facilities across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The company is family-owned and based in Salinas, CA — "the salad bowl of the world."
In 2023, Taylor Farms delivered robust financial results in the face of a challenging economic climate marked by rising input costs, adverse weather conditions, geopolitical turmoil and historically high interest rates. The company has demonstrated ambitious and thoughtful leadership through its food-safety and automation efforts, including industry-leading efficiency in processing and logistics.
Amid stiff competition, Taylor Farms' strong year-over-year growth, tangible execution of sustainability efforts and cohesive collaboration with startups and local communities stood out among its peers. On top of that, the work the company is doing to mitigate its environmental impact and to award scholarship funds to the children of its employees demonstrates a steadfast commitment to social responsibility.
"We are honored to be recognized for this year's Rabobank Award for Excellence in Corporate Leadership," said Bruce Taylor, chairman and CEO of Taylor Farms. "This award reflects our team's success, dedication, amazing response time and entrepreneurial attitude across the organization. It is with great passion and love for our business that we dedicate ourselves to providing 265 million servings of fresh, safe and healthy food each week to kitchens across North America."
