III. Company Goals
At Stateline Producers Cooperative, we strive for excellence. In doing so, we believe it is vital to have company goals that can direct us as we move forward in our efforts to grow and compete in this industry.
It is our intent to be the leader in food and operational safety initiatives in our community and to provide a safe work environment for all employees. We will modernize our current facilities so that we are better equipped to efficiently and effectively handle incoming commodities from grower/members while continuing to provide safe facilities for our grower/members, employees and visitors. By achieving and maintaining higher food safety standards we will be able to meet our current customer needs and obtain new customers who require higher food safety standards.
In 2011, management and the board of directors set an initiative to grow our business through the sale of additional base capital credits. We will achieve this by purchasing, processing and marketing additional commodity types grown locally and in our region of the country. In 2012, we set a specific goal to become a processor of dry edible Yellow peas.
Accomplishing our goals will ensure the sustainability of our corporation financially and provide a rewarding experience for our members, customers and employees.
