Flowers Foods could not bake, market, or distribute its products without the talent, dedication, and hard work of thousands of employees, associates, and independent distributor partners. Their professionalism, enthusiasm, and
dedication to do their best are vital to the success of our company.

Flowers Foods celebrates the positive spirit that is alive in our company through our employees. The Flowers Spirit is one of integrity and dedication to a job well done. It encourages others and inspires them to do their best. It's about caring for those with whom you work as well as for your community and neighbors through charitable actions. The Flowers Spirit is the heart of our company. 

Since 2002, the Flowers Spirit Award program has celebrated employees throughout the company who live the Flowers Spirit. These individuals, chosen by coworkers, are honored with a Spirit Award because of their exemplary work performance, their positive attitude, their encouragement of others, and the time and energy they give to their community. In keeping with the spirit of the program, Flowers makes a charitable donation in honor of each Spirit Award recipient.

Every year, from the list of Spirit Award honorees, one person is chosen to receive the programs' highest honor: the L.S. Flowers Spirit Award. This award is named after Langdon S. Flowers, Sr., former chairman of the company, whose kindness, generosity, and encouragement touched the lives of many within our company and the country.
