Hovis has been baking and milling for more than 130 years. With that wealth of experience has come a loyal customer base, more than 3,500 employees, and more than 1 million loaves of bread being baked every day. With all of that going on, do they have time for sustainability? Are they winning any green awards? What’s their CSR like? Are they attempting to reduce their carbon footprint? Is their packaging recyclable? What happens to byproducts? We will attempt to answer all of this in our Hovis company review.
