ABC Bakers has been baking Girl Scout Cookies since 1937!
ABC's mission is to deliver the best tasting cookies & provide an easy cookie sale experience to our Girl Scout Councils.
We are licensed by Girl Scouts of the USA to provide Girl Scout Cookies for the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program. As one of the original licensed Girl Scout Cookie baker, ABC Bakers is proud to provide customer-focused responsive service, innovative products, and more effective training and digital tools to support our Girl Scout Councils.
To continue creating safe, high-quality cookies that taste amazing, our bakery in North Sioux City, SD has an extensive program that analyzes potential risks, ensures preventive controls are in place, and regularly tests overall effectiveness with audits from the Global Food Safety Initiative. All these measures are working well, the bakery recently received the audit program’s highest rating —AA!
Respect the Environment
In 2010 we kicked off our “out of the box” initiative, where we opted for cookie sleeves instead of cardboard boxes for some of our top-selling cookies including Lemonades, Girl Scout S'mores and Toast-Yay!.
This change alone led to us saving 150 tons of paperboard, and an estimated 2,600 gallons of diesel fuel a year. This is a powerful example of what can be accomplished through making just one change, and we are always keeping an eye out on the next environmentally conscious way to bake and sell Girl Scout Cookies.
Sustainable Foods for all tastes
ABC Bakers is committed to support the production of certified sustainable palm oil.
As part of Weston Foods, ABC Bakers is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an organization of growers, buyers, manufacturers, conservationists, and other interested parties striving to develop and follow best practices to ensure sustainability.
Since 2015, all the palm oil used in our Girl Scout cookies has been sourced exclusively from RSPO members through RSPO Credits, which support sustainable palm oil production practices.
The next step in our journey is to elevate the certification of the palm oil used for Girl Scout Cookies to RSPO Certified Mass Balance palm oil in 2021 to prepare for the 2022 selling season. Visit http://www.rspo.org/ website to learn more.
