Name: Ocean Spray
Location: Lakeville, Massachusetts (USA)
The Ocean Spray story starts in 1930 when three passionate, independent cranberry growers found the key to expanding the superfruit's success: a single cranberry-growing family. Ninety years later, their cranberry family now includes over 700 grower families across North and South America. As a farmer-owned company, Ocean Spray proudly delivers 100% of profits from their farmer-owners' fruit back to them.
Ocean Spray's mission is to connect farms to families for a better life. Their dedication to sustainability and transparency runs deep. Many of their family farmers have been stewarding cranberry farms for more than four generations, starting with the cranberry vine and its nutrient-dense berries. Ocean Spray farmers work to nourish and protect their superfruit year-round, from carefully watching for frost during the winter to conserving water for re-use on the farm. In collaboration with these farmers, Ocean Spray is also committed to sustainably growing 100% of its fruit by 2020.
