From the sunbaked fields where our seeds are grown to the busy homes where our bread is served, we strive to make a positive impact every day. It’s a philosophy that extends beyond our bread to the world around us. We consistently work to improve the quality of our ingredients, reduce our carbon footprint, and give back to the communities we serve.
It all started back in 1940, when Dean and Betty Arnold opened their own bakery out of a tiny house in Stamford, CT. Back then, you couldn’t find the premium bread that we love today. By starting small, the couple were able to give each brick-oven-baked loaf the attention it deserved. Today, though Dean and Betty no longer make it themselves, Arnold® is still committed to bringing you bread you can believe in—so you can live your life and love your loaf.
At Arnold®, we pride ourselves on our ability to find sustainable, common-sense solutions to the issues that affect our business and the world around us. And now we have even more to take pride in: our brand is part of Bimbo Bakeries USA (BBU). BBU has committed to initiatives that will help reduce energy use across the company and is communicating those efforts externally to foster real change in the industry.
Here are just some of our current sustainability initiatives and accomplishments:
Giving back is part of who we are as part of Bimbo Bakeries USA (BBU). Arnold® is committed to supporting communities across the country through a number of philanthropic initiatives:
