KeHE is more than a company. We’re a force for good.

KeHE people put their hearts where their hands are. And we serve.

KeHE Cares puts our employee-owners to work in volunteer opportunities in the U.S. and abroad.

We serve in local soup kitchens, create healthy meal kits for the hungry, build and repair homes, collect relief supplies and much more.

Here’s how it works: we contribute 10% of our profits to KeHE Cares, run by our KeHE Cares Employee Outreach Committee made upof people from a variety of departments within our company.

KeHE Cares supports organizations where our employee-owners are directly involved and committed to serving others in donating their time and talents for the betterment of those in need.

It’s a certification.
Like Fair Trade (or organic or LEED), but for the whole company that meets the highest standards of verified performance, transparency and accountability.

It’s an approach.
A better way to do business – better for workers, communities and the environment.

It’s a community.
A community of practice to increase our individual and collective impact.

It’s a movement.
Leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good.

    KeHE really does ‘Care’- it is not lip service!


    Training programs, health insurance & PTO could use improvement

    Advice to Management

    Investing in your people by way of training will always yield a higher ROI & lower new employee turnover.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at KeHE Distributors (Naperville, IL) in December 2017.


    I applied online for the position and was contacted by KeHE's talent department. They informed me that I was being looked at to fill their open position. The talent team gave me some background on the position and what they were looking for. I felt it would be a good fit for me and the company so an in person interview was scheduled.

    The interview went great. I learned a lot more about the position and the company and my manager learned a lot more about myself. After the first interview I was asked to come in for a second with two other members of KeHE. I was then offered the position and I accepted!
