The American Bakers Association (ABA) Safety Recognition Program is honored to award 19 Member companies across 152 facilities for their effective and successful safety programs in 2022.

“In 2022, despite supply chain and other challenges, more facilities received the award than the previous three years, demonstrating the baking industry’s continued commitment to workforce safety,” said Eric Dell, president and CEO, of the American Bakers Association.
