For info on Little Debbie's products click on the following link:
Mrs. Freshley's is a subsidiary of Flowers Foods, just as Little Debbie is a part of The McKee Company.
And, like McKee, Flowers Food seems to be more focused on the encouragemnt and welfare of its employees than apaprently The Hostess Company was when it decided to screw-over it's employees and ultimately destroy the company and wipe-out their jobs.
Here is an excerpt from Flowers Foods regarding their attitude toward there employees:
Leadership and Mission
Flowers Foods could not bake, market, or distribute its products without the talent, dedication, and hard work of thousands of employees, associates, and independent distributors. These people are one of Flowers' greatest assets. Their professionalism, enthusiasm, and dedication to do their best are vitally important to the success of our company.
As a team, our goal is to increase the value of our company to our shareholders. We accomplish this by:
- Growing sales organically and through acquisitions,
- Creating foods that meet the needs of customers and consumers,
- Developing strong brands,
- Providing extraordinary service,
- Operating efficient bakeries,
- Innovating to improve our performance,
- Managing our resources wisely, and by
- Fostering team spirit, appreciating diversity, and encouraging professional growth.
Our commitment to these actions creates competitive advantages that make Flowers Foods' success possible.
In 2002, Flowers Foods created the Flowers Spirit Award program to celebrate employees throughout the company who live the Flowers Spirit. These individuals are honored with a Spirit Award because of their exemplary work performance, their positive attitude, their encouragement of others, and the time and energy they give to their community. In keeping with the spirit of the program, Flowers makes a charitable donation in honor of each Spirit Award Recipient.
Every year, from the list of Spirit Award honorees, one person is chosen to receive the programs's highest honor: the L. S. Flowers Spirit Award. This award is named after Langdon S. Flowers, Sr., former chairman of the company, whose kindness, generosity, and encouragement have touched the lives of many within our company
