A message from our CEO Todd Siwak

"Creating a diverse and inclusive environment is essential to delivering on Ferrara’s mission of Sharing Delight in Every Bite and living our values. It is unfeasible to lead and grow sustainably without diverse paradigms, experiences and perspectives, especially as we engage with our team members and consumers. Simply put, our business doesn't work without diversity."

Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Ferrara Natasha Miller Williams

“Cultivating a culture of diversity and inclusion requires authenticity and accountability. Both rely on our ability to be generous in our interpretations of each other. We continue to seek ways to understand, learn, and grow together and are committed to systemic changes to propel our company and communities to a more positive position.”

Employee Quotes

What I love most about D&I is having opportunities to share my true self and connect with my peers on a human level. The discussions and shared experiences, led by D&I and the ERGs, have helped me cultivate relationships that are helping me grow in the business and beyond.

I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from my colleagues, and also continuing to share my own personal stories because I feel like Ferrara is making our stories feel heard and making it ok for us to share, and I think that's awesome.

Sr. Sales Director

This journey means that we can continue to build on the diverse group we have here in Augusta, but moreover for me it means learning from all of our employees. Those things that are important, dates that are important, experiences that matter.

Plant Manager

What excites me the most about the diversity and inclusion journey, is the journey itself. We can change the way we recruit. We can change the way we approach diversity and inclusion. We can change the culture.
