Rogue Creamery Named Top Green Company in Oregon


PORTLAND, OR

In its fifth consecutive year, Rogue Creamery has been named one of the 100 Best Green Companies to Work For in Oregon. This year, Rogue Creamery was ranked #3, the second year in a row that the company has been ranked in the Top 10.

It has been for 80 years,” said David Gremmels, President and Cheesemaker at Rogue Creamery. “Rogue Creamery is a small company striving to be a big example of a socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable business. We are doing business simply and purely in a supportive community filled with Blue Cheese lovers.”

Employees and employers alike were asked to rate their satisfaction and importance in 15 statements related to sustainable practices. Over 16,000 employees took part in anonymous surveys for the search to identify the companies who approach their daily work with green values, according to a press release.

“At Rogue Creamery, everything we do in connection with the environment, landscape, atmosphere, community, animal husbandry, ingredients, practices, and processes must be supported by three key words: Safe, Healthy, and Optimistic,” added Gremmels. “These are the three words Rogue Creamery has used for eight decades.”

Congratulations on this recognition, Rogue Creamery!
