Doing well,
doing good

sustainability and corporate responsibility programs

ot all grocery retailers and the suppliers of
the products sold in their fresh perimeter
departments agree on the definitions of
"sustainability" and "corporate responsibility."

Hy-Vee partners with national, international and local
organizations to make a positive difference for those in
need, Potthoff says. The retailer's One Step program, for
example, helps fund clean water initiatives and nutrition
programs around the globe - even in places where people will never see a Hy-Vee store.
