SUPERVALU is deeply committed to the highest standards of ethics and corporate responsibility. We make this commitment to our employees, shareholders, suppliers and the communities in which we have the pleasure to operate. This commitment serves as the cornerstone for all activities and decisions of the SUPERVALU board.
As non-executive chairman of the SUPERVALU board of directors, I can assure you that your board and I regard rigorous corporate governance as more than a matter of legal and regulatory compliance. It is a standard by which we earn and maintain the trust of each of our shareholders and other stakeholders each and every day.
