Connecting Farms to Families for a Better Life

Connecting Farms to Families for a Better Life

Our mission at Ocean Spray is to connect farms to families for a better life. Together with our farmer-owners, we are dedicated to the health of people, communities, and our planet. At Ocean Spray, impact is not a part of our business, it is our business. We’re committed to a healthier planet full of healthier people.

Global Impact

We’re committed to sustainably growing 100% of our fruit by 2020.

As a farmer-owned cooperative since 1930, our dedication to sustainability and transparency runs deep. Many of our 700 family farmers have been stewarding cranberry farms for more than four generations, starting with the cranberry vine and its nutrient-dense berries. Our Ocean Spray farmers work to nourish and protect our superfruit year-round, from carefully watching for frost during the winter to conserving water for re-use on the farm. Our food and beverage facilities also work hard to ensure that the power of our cranberries makes its way into every sip and bite of our products. Finally, our mindful packaging wraps and protects these berries for the world to enjoy.

We’re also tackling climate change, conserving water, and protecting human rights. Our core pillars keep us aligned to our mission so we can be a regenerative and resilient cooperative for generations to come.
