Quality

Our mission is to delight consumers with every interaction.  This means quality is key to everything we do.  We source ingredients from the USA and around the world to ensure we can reliably and consistently deliver great-tasting products.

Our manufacturing facilities and research and development labs are state of the art and achieve excellent ratings from all relevant auditing organizations, including SQF Level 3, QAI, USDA (for organic certification), NSF, FDA III and many others.

We use this focus on quality to develop new and exciting products and continue to raise the bar on all existing products.

Transparency

We understand that now, more than ever, people want easy and open access to information about brands, ingredients, how products are made and marketed, and much more.  To address this:

We have moved to naturally sourced colors and natural flavors across many of our products and are working to transition to them on others.

Sustainability Practices

At PIM we believe in being good corporate citizens and strive for continuous improvement in our sustainability practices. We have many accomplishments we are proud of and continue to evaluate new opportunities to implement programs at our plants and in our corporate offices that are environmentally friendly.
  • In the past five years we have reduced our water use by ten million gallons per year while at the same time increasing production.
  • We recycle all cardboard in manufacturing facilities to the amount of 873 tons per year!
  • We use energy efficient LED lights throughout our facilities – which are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting.
