Live Our Values

“My proudest Living Our Values moments involve working cross functionally within our business and with our customers to ensure high-performing, functional flour. This is even in the face of obstacles such as crop quality concerns, an ever-changing marketplace or customer needs that are always evolving. I am also very proud to work with a very high-performing group of people that live out Ardent Mills’ values on a daily basis.”

Others Focused vs. Self Focused

"In my job, it is very important to be Others Focused vs Self Focused. I like knowing that I can play a small part in helping someone with something in their day that will affect the bigger picture. Knowing that I can be depended on is very important to me and always makes me want to try harder and do better.”

Clear the Noise

“A new driver to the mill drove onto the scale and paused to ask me about the correct process to follow, which I explained to him step-by-step. The driver of the truck behind him was upset because he had to wait longer than usual. I then explained to him that the driver being new, stood on the scale a couple of minutes more since he was learning our process.”


Dennis Belmonte - Elevator Operator

Relentlessly Curious

“It's as easy as doing my job and asking myself if what I am doing is the simplest, most effective way of doing things. Then thinking about how my co-workers will be affected by my work and whether or not I am setting them up for success.”

Win - The Right Way

“I think that the leadership principle that I strive to most is "Win the Right Way". We look at almost all decisions here at the Albany facility with the same 3 filters- 1st is Safety- 2nd is Food Safety- 3rd is ELEMEDS (Every Load, Every Mill, Every Day, Safely). We will "Win the right Way" if we use this thought process consistently.”
