Quality Food Commitment

Our Commitment to Food Safety & Quality

Wawa has a long history as a leader in the food industry. Since the first Wawa opened on April 16, 1964, we’ve been committed to offering safe, quality, fresh food. Today, our business has grown to more than 750 stores serving communities in six states with a wide variety of fresh food and beverages.

Rooted in Our Values

Rooted in our core values and delivered through thousands of our wonderful Wawa Associates, we are on a journey of continuous improvement in partnership with our suppliers to "do things right" and to "do the right thing" for our customers, our communities and our planet. We've established an independent Advisory Council that includes national experts and thought leaders in food safety, animal welfare, food technology and health and wellness.

Our goal is to improve and formalize the principles, decision making, policy, programs, standards and audit criteria for the thousands of food products we serve. The Council provides analysis of academic studies, interest and advocacy group research, key government policy papers, regulations and regional and global food industry trends that will impact our company and food policies over the next generations. We are already using this information to inform and enhance our everyday food practices in every store, and with every customer.

We are on a journey of continuous improvement with our suppliers to achieve these objectives for our Wawa branded products. Making changes to ingredients and practices will take time. We are committed to working with suppliers who continue to demonstrate progress in meeting our objectives.

Our Focus and Objectives

Eggs

We will transition our carton eggs to cage free by the end of 2017. Our intent is to use cage free eggs in all breakfast sandwiches by 2022.

Pork

We are committed by 2022 to working with suppliers who are not using gestational crates.

Poultry

We have transitioned all poultry products (with the exception of soups) to Raised Without Antibiotics, one year earlier than our original commitment. We plan to have soups completed by the end of 2018.

Dairy

We are committed today to only partnering with farms who do not treat cows with rBGH or rBST growth hormones for the supply of milk used in Wawa branded fluid dairy products.

Palm Oil

We purchase Palm Oil from suppliers who are certified in sustainable practices and do not practice deforestation.

Clean Ingredients

We are evaluating all of our product specifications to source and serve high quality ingredients under a “cleaner” label. This is a journey and we strive to remove all artificial colors, flavors and preservatives by 2019.

Coffee

Wawa currently purchases one million pounds of Rain Forest Alliance (RFA) certified coffee. RFA supports responsible farmers and ensures the sustainable farming practices of our coffee growers. Our goal is to triple our certified sustainable coffee purchases over the next five years. At the same time, working with our suppliers, we will also have programs in place that directly support the farmers in the regions where our coffee is grown.

Animal Welfare

Support our commitment to animal welfare by continuing to work with our suppliers to improve their practices of raising animals responsibly and treating them humanely. In 2017, Wawa will be working closely with animal welfare experts to understand alternative solutions to set as standards for our broiler chicken suppliers related to higher welfare breeds, stocking density and environmental and processing conditions.

 

Supplier Expectations

To ensure our suppliers demonstrate progress and adherence to our objectives, Wawa will enhance our Supplier Risk Program to include additional monitoring and accountability measures. We will work to include our objectives in our procurement and supplier management programs. We will expect suppliers to adhere to our objectives and address any non-conformance.

Our Journey Continues

We have always considered our business as “friends and neighbors serving friends and neighbors.” So we see our commitment to safe and sustainable products as the evolution of our founding promise. This is a journey for all of us. We will regularly measure progress and compliance to our objectives to ensure that we are providing food products that are fresh tasting, safe to eat and sustainably produced. We see this as not the new way, but the Wawa Way.
