On March 14, 2012, Joaquin Almaguer accepted the resolution from Union City’s Mayor, Mark Green, on behalf of American Licorice. The associates of the Union City plant have been dedicated to reducing waste over the past ten years, redirecting 92% of waste from landfill in 2011. In 2011, American Licorice set a goal of zero waste companywide. The city of Union City also noted American Licorice’s impressive history of community involvement.
Congratulations to Joaquin and the associates of Union City for their outstanding performance in waste reduction and on their recognition by Union City.
