Sustainably Grown Berries With Earth’s Future in Mind

Cal Giant | April 19, 2021

At California Giant Berry Farms, we treat every day like it’s Earth Day. As a company, we are leading the way in the produce industry with our sustainability efforts, so you can feel good about adding California Giant strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries to your shopping cart. 

Our berries are sustainably grown with the Earth's future in mind. We take pride in our sustainable efforts, a few of which include Bee Better Certification, Sustainably Grown Certification, and Zero Waste Certification through TRUE at our company headquarters. 

 

We always strive to Bee Better. 

Bees play a vital role in pollinating many foods that we all depend on, including blueberries. At California Giant Berry Farms, we are committed to keeping all pollinator habitats safe, while encouraging healthy populations. As part of this commitment, many of our blueberry fields are Bee Better Certified, which means we take extra steps to promote pollinator habitats and mitigate the risks of pesticides which harm those habitats. 

 

We grow in sustainable ways.

We strive to protect the land on which we grow berries so that we can continue to have viable farms for generations to come. All of our delicious berries are grown using sustainable farming practices, which include building and maintaining healthy soil, water management, minimizing pollution, and promoting biodiversity. 

In fact, in 2020, one of our grower-partners became the first Sustainably Grown Certified strawberry operation in the world! 

 

When we say Zero Waste, we mean it. 

Our headquarters in Watsonville, California is TRUE Zero Waste Certified by Green Business Certifications, Inc. To become TRUE Zero Waste Certified is no easy task - it means that we divert more than 90% of waste away from landfills by reducing, recycling, reusing and composting our office’s waste. 

From our interns, to our CEO, and everyone in between, we are committed to environmental responsibility by reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainability.
