Live Our Values

“My proudest Living Our Values moments involve working cross functionally within our business and with our customers to ensure high-performing, functional flour. This is even in the face of obstacles such as crop quality concerns, an ever-changing marketplace or customer needs that are always evolving. I am also very proud to work with a very high-performing group of people that live out Ardent Mills’ values on a daily basis.”

Patrick Deppa - Canada Wheat Leader
Others Focused vs. Self Focused

"In my job, it is very important to be Others Focused vs Self Focused. I like knowing that I can play a small part in helping someone with something in their day that will affect the bigger picture. Knowing that I can be depended on is very important to me and always makes me want to try harder and do better.”

Tiffany Mahmood - HR Coordinator
Clear the Noise

“A new driver to the mill drove onto the scale and paused to ask me about the correct process to follow, which I explained to him step-by-step. The driver of the truck behind him was upset because he had to wait longer than usual. I then explained to him that the driver being new, stood on the scale a couple of minutes more since he was learning our process.”

Dennis Belmonte - Elevator Operator
Relentlessly Curious

“It's as easy as doing my job and asking myself if what I am doing is the simplest, most effective way of doing things. Then thinking about how my co-workers will be affected by my work and whether or not I am setting them up for success.”

Jeff McClelland - Flour Miller
Win - The Right Way

“I think that the leadership principle that I strive to most is "Win the Right Way". We look at almost all decisions here at the Albany facility with the same 3 filters- 1st is Safety- 2nd is Food Safety- 3rd is ELEMEDS (Every Load, Every Mill, Every Day, Safely). We will "Win the right Way" if we use this thought process consistently.”

Sean Gager - Plant Manager
