Relationships with stakeholders are the backbone of the work that we do. ACI has been working with AAFCS for over 40 years to ensure that their members have access to and understand the safe and effective use of cleaning products. We have worked with members of AAFCS to address the H1N1 crisis as is threatened to become an epidemic, and on other priority issues including ingredient communication and high efficiency detergents. The established relationship with AAFCS allows us to quickly organize educational outreach efforts to reach millions of consumers.

AAFCS is recognized as the driving force in bringing people together to improve the lives of individuals, families and communities.
