Willow Run Celebrates our Employee Owners

November 01, 2021

Each Year our Employee Owners gather for an evening of recognition and reflection of the previous year’s accomplishments. Willow Run Foods is a 100% Employee Owned Company. There are many benefits to this, the largest of which is that the efforts you put in on a daily basis come back to you in ownership of the Company.

Each year there are shares of stock allocated to our Employees at no cost to the Employees. For example, last year we allocated an average of 22.51% of each employee’s wages to their account (yes, you read that right, 22.51!). You do not have to contribute a certain % put of your hard-earned money (like you do with a 401k Plan) to get this benefit, it is at no cost to the Employees!

More to Celebrate!

Additionally, we celebrate those who have reached service milestones. Employees with multiple years of service truly understand the many benefits of working for an Employee Owned company. We take this time to thank our Service Recognition recipients for 2021.
