Cal Giant | May 18, 2021

Sweet, sustainable strawberries are what make our world go ‘round! Here at California Giant Berry Farms, we grow sustainably with Earth’s future in mind. In fact, in 2020, one of our grower-partners became the first Sustainably Grown Certified strawberry operation in the world!

On National Pick Strawberries Day, we thank you for “picking” California Giant! Here are a few of our favorite recipes, featuring our sustainably-grown strawberries.

Once our berries are picked, they must pass a careful inspection before moving to our cooling facilities. There, we bring the internal temperature of our berries down to 32 degrees to preserve freshness for the best possible shelf life. When transported to retail stores, trucks are also kept at 32 degrees to safeguard the berries’ freshness. Once brought home, be sure to maintain this cold chain by immediately storing in your refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy.

 

Strawberry Coconut Lemon Yogurt with Toasted Almonds

Yes, yogurt can be exciting! The sweet coconut and strawberry flavors of this recipe perfectly balance out the acidity from the lemon and the fullness of the toasted almonds.
