Join the King Arthur Team
We're an employee-owned company, every one of us bakers at heart. And for generations, we’ve been there with you as you bake. Our mission is to be the ultimate resource and inspiration in the kitchen, to inspire connections and community through baking, and to use our business as a force for good.
We're America's premier baking resource. Our success is fueled by our genuine passion and excitement for baking, the depth of our knowledge, and the quality of our products. We see ourselves in every one of our customers, from professionals to first-timers.
We are employee owners striving to make the world better through baking. We believe in using business as a force for good.
Our culture is special, and like sourdough, must be nurtured to bring out the best in everyone. If neglected, our culture will become dormant.
We are authentic. We care about and support each other, our customers, our community and our environment. We volunteer to help make our community a better place. We show up thinking like owners and promote a team mentality. We are psyched to come to work.
We are passionate about baking. We are empowered and take pride in bringing excellence to our jobs. Integrity and quality are baked into our core.
Celebrating is part of who we are. We will celebrate each other's accomplishments and will join together throughout the year to celebrate.
We work in an open and safe environment where transparency and communication are valued. We encourage EOs to be inquisitive.
We believe in our rights & responsibilities; and that all roles are critical to our overall success as a company. Hard work and performance are valued and rewarded; we promote from within when possible.
