People. Planet. Profit.
At California Giant Berry Farms, we believe sustainability is the foundation for a thriving business, which is why our commitment to sustainability spans from our fields to our main office headquarters – and beyond. Our triple bottom line of people, planet, profit balances social, environmental and economic considerations for a holistic approach to true sustainability.
Behind every California Giant berry are people dedicated to delivering you the berry best. And while they dedicate their berry best to you – we give our best to them. That’s why we prioritize education, community development and employee welfare, all while nurturing the berries we grow.
As leaders in agriculture, we take our commitment to protecting the earth seriously because our futures depend on it. From field to fork, we are actively seeking ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We’re constantly challenging ourselves to find the best ways to reduce water usage, improve air quality and support the ecosystems in our growing areas – and beyond.
True sustainability is only achieved with profit. Profit enables us to invest in employees, our grower partners and nurture our agricultural and local communities. Achieving economic success empowers us to continue our sustainability journey, investing in eco-friendly technologies to do our absolute best for the planet.

California Giant grower partner, Satsuma Farms became the first strawberry grower in the world to achieve the Sustainably Grown certification from SCS Global Services in 2020. The Sustainably Grown certification addresses a broad range of issues related to economics, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. Satsuma Farm’s pilot program has inspired other California Giant growers to become Sustainably-Grown certified, and today our growers have a strategic goal to increase sustainability certifications by 50% of acreage in the next few years.
