The culture of Carolina Ingredients focuses on Seven Simple Statements.
In 2008 Doug Meyer-Cuno issued the challenge to the team: Who among you demonstrate values that are recognized and respected by your co-workers? From that simple task, our core cultures evolved. Each month, all team members from office to production meet in the board room. During our Core Culture meeting, we discuss accomplishments, hurdles, financial health, KPI (key performance indicators) and recognize team members for their demonstration of each of the core cultures. Quarterly, team members can earn $20 for having their nomination selected while the nominee earns $50. We take our core cultures very seriously!
