DOING WHAT'S RIGHT

At TOPS Friendly Markets, social responsibility and sustainability have always been at the core of our mission, upholding standards that ensure we reduce environmental waste and energy consumption while providing our customers with sustainably sourced, high-quality products.


We also understand that our measures extend beyond responsible business practices that preserve and protect our environment. Sustainability includes supporting programs that seek to eradicate hunger and disease; promote the education of our youth; comfort those in need; and help our communities flourish. More than our duty, these efforts are a part of our culture, fueled by the dedication of more than 14,000 associates.


Our ongoing commitment to sustainability is met with enthusiasm and resolve every day, as we work to ensure we leave our communities—and our planet—better for the next generation.
