King Arthur Baking Company, based in Norwich, Vermont, and TVS, a distinguished third party logistics partner based in Brevard, North Carolina, have announced a new partnership to enhance the availability of King Arthur’s premium baking mixes and flours, while empowering the local community through inclusive employment opportunities. Through the partnership, TVS now blends, fills and packs a large variety of baking mixes and flour blends for King Arthur.
The move was made to meet rapidly increasing wholesale demand for King Arthur’s gluten-free products. TVS aligned with the company’s quality standards and values as an employee-owned, founding B Corp.
“We are thrilled to embark on this new journey alongside TVS,” says King Arthur Baking Company chief executive officer Karen Colberg. “From the pride they take in their work, to all that they do for their employees and community, we couldn’t be more grateful to have them as our partner.”
“As a 100 percent employee-owned company, King Arthur Baking has demonstrated a powerful commitment to their employees,” says TVS chief executive officer Jamie Brandenburg. “And, thanks to King Arthur, there are now dozens more individuals with significant disabilities and other barriers to employment working at TVS and receiving a living wage! I can’t say enough about what this relationship means to us and the impact that King Arthur Baking is making to everyone in our communities.”
