Our response to the latest boycott of Amy’s products:
In recent days, misguided social media posts have sparked some to boycott Amy’s products. We urge everyone to get the facts.
First, “our employees” are not calling for this – and, in fact, would be hurt by this if people stop buying the products they make.
Second, here are the facts.
- “Unsafe worker conditions” – False. Our Santa Rosa facility has a safety record that is two times better than industry averages.
- “Union busting” – False. We respect our employees’ rights and freedoms regarding unionization.
- “Denial of bathroom breaks” – False. Employees receive scheduled breaks throughout the day and can ask a breaker or line lead to fill in anytime they need to use the restroom outside of their scheduled breaks.
- “Not providing access to drinking water” – False. There are 16 water stations located throughout our Santa Rosa facility.
We always take any allegation regarding employee safety seriously. We have worked diligently to research and ensure that our working conditions are aligned with our values, policies and practices and are in full compliance with all regulations.
