Good Cakes and Bakes Sustainability Statement
At Good Cakes and Bakes we are committed to connecting with and building a stronger community. Our goal is to remain a productive company by focusing on PEOPLE who drive our innovation and creativity, the PLANET to source “good for the earth” products to create our goods; and we acknowledge that making a PROFIT is necessary to remain viable. As we move into our eighth year we realize that these are not mere words or loose statements. In order to remain sustainable, in these areas, we use the PEOPLE, PLANET, PROFIT, drivers to guide us.
