A Message from Dan Jaffee
In 1941, my grandfather, Nick Jaffee, began selling Oil-Dri® floor absorbent to promote cleaner, safer work environments. Today, Oil-Dri remains dedicated to providing value-added mineral solutions to a variety of industries. We have grown to become a global organization with extensive mineral reserves, in-depth market knowledge, innovative product development and efficient manufacturing capabilities. We are vertically integrated which enables us to effectively oversee every step in our process from research and development to supply chain to marketing and sales. We take pride in being an organization that emphasizes high moral and ethical values. Within every area of our business, we strive for honesty, integrity and excellence.
At Oil-Dri, we make it a priority to be a socially and environmentally conscious organization that puts the health and wellbeing of our teammates, customers, community and our planet at the forefront of our business. We have established policies and procedures that provide a safe and comfortable workplace, and we embrace all people, regardless of race, sex, gender identity, age, religion, nationality, physical ability or sexual orientation. Our manufacturing facilities are continuously making improvements to become more environmentally responsible. We strive to provide safe and effective products for people, animals and the environment.
Oil-Dri’s Board of Directors and management team are committed to practicing solid corporate governance. We believe that our Board and management team follow sound governance practices and work together to protect and promote the interests of all of our stakeholders, including shareholders, teammates, customers, suppliers and our communities.
We understand that being a good corporate citizen is of utmost importance. As our company continues to grow, we will remain on our journey to elevate our social impact, reduce our environmental footprint and maintain a well-managed and governed enterprise.
