FORT WORTH, Texas - Sept. 25, 2013 - Renfro Foods, makers of the Mrs. Renfro's brand of specialty salsas, sauces and other products, was presented with the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics by the Better Business Bureau of Fort Worth and Tarrant County. The presentation was made during the BBB's annual luncheon meeting on Sept. 18.
The Torch Award is based on a company's ability to demonstrate ethical business practices in four categories: Management Practices, Community/Investor/Stakeholder Relations, Communications and Marketing Practices, and Industry Reputation.
"What an honor it is to receive this award," said Renfro Foods CEO Bill Renfro, who accepted on behalf of the company. "My parents, George and Arthurine Renfro, founded this company 73 years ago and it is a privilege to carry on their legacy with the principles they instilled in us."
"Every day, business across Tarrant and its surrounding counties are working hard to provide consumers and the community with the very best experience possible," said Tom Eastman, FWBBB Chairman. "The Torch Award is a way for the FWBBB to recognize the positive contributions businesses are making to improve their communities and uphold ethical business practices."
In 2008, Renfro Foods was honored with the Greater Tarrant Business Ethics Awards from the Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.
Renfro Foods, along with fellow award winners Firefighting's Finest Moving & Delivery, Inc., and Sam Pack's Five Star Ford, will advance to the International Torch Awards competition to compete with other businesses from across the country.
