In 2018, two Bama locations–Bama Pie and Bama Frozen Dough–were two of 100 manufacturing plants in the United States to earn an ENERGY STAR certification. This is the second year that Bama’s locations have earned this important certification, which honors superior energy performance.

Bama previously earned the ENERGY STAR certification in 2016 as well.

Since 1992, the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program has motivated companies into becoming more thoughtful about their energy use. Over the years since the ENERGY STAR program was enacted, ENERGY STAR and its partners–including Bama–have helped families and businesses save nearly 4 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3 billion metric tons.

It requires intentional, consistent effort to receive the ENERGY STAR certification. It’s only awarded to manufacturing plants that perform more efficiently than 75% of similar plants across the nation.

“Saving energy and protecting the environment have always been a focus for us here at Bama,” said J.K. Evicks, Corporate Environmental Manager. “We’re happy to have not just one, but two of our locations certified for the second time.”

Bama’s third location, Bama Foods, is not eligible to participate in the ENERGY STAR program because its product types don’t fit into the EPA’s current criteria for commercial bakeries.

In addition to ENERGY STAR certification, Bama is a certified B corporation, which verifies businesses are excelling in social and environmental areas, transparency, and governance.

Bama is proud to hold EPA ENERGY STAR partner status as we continue our commitment to sustainability.
