“As a farmer-owned cooperative, there is a natural connection to the communities where we live and work. There is a deep-rooted purpose. Ocean Spray was founded in 1930 when three cranberry farmers came together to make life better for their families and the rest of their farmer community. The connection to farms with family is who we are. It solidifies us. It makes what we do every day that much more important.”
