Each year, in memory of company Founder Robert E. Rich, associates gather around the world to celebrate our past and our future, and commemorate our founder’s true passions: our unique spirit of innovation, our unwavering commitment to the success of our customers, and the unparalleled dedication of Rich’s associates around the globe.
For more than 60 years, our founder’s passion fueled not only growth of Rich’s, but also the growth of the global food industry, On Founder’s Day we celebrate that passion with each other and in the communities where we live and work.
This year marked our 6th annual Founder’s Day celebration. On March13, we paused to watch a compelling video about our global business success, and present innovation and manufacturing excellence awards to key associates from around the world. We also took a moment to spotlight one of the cornerstones of our success: our customers.
At our World Headquarters in Buffalo, Chairman and Vice Chair Bob and Mindy Rich hosted an Innovation Expo, and hundreds gathered to share stories, sample delicious new products and celebrate together.
It was an enriching time to remember our past, and envision our future together.
