De organisatie

Driscoll’s story begins in 1870, when Joseph “Ed” Reiter and Dick Driscoll started growing their very first strawberries in California. The combination of sunlight, water, love, and a lot of attention made for the most delicious fruits they had ever tasted. Soon they also started producing raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries under Driscoll’s label, a name that has become known as a real quality mark.

Driscoll’s is now the global market leader for fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. With more than 100 years of farming heritage and hundreds of independent growers around the world, Driscoll’s is passionate about growing fresh, beautiful, and delicious berries. Their values of passion, humility, and trustworthiness have guided their mission to delight consumers around the world.

Driscoll’s exclusive patented berry varieties are developed through years of research using only natural breeding methods – meaning, no GMOs. From farm-to-table, they focus on delivering a high-quality, premium berry experience with their many supply chain partners. Driscoll’s is the trusted brand for Only the Finest Berries.

It is their mission to make everyone love soft fruit! They want nothing more than to be the world’s most beloved soft fruit company and to positively impact the lives of everyone they touch.

How do they want to do this? By following the values closest to their hearts. This means that they take care of their people, society, and the environment. They threaten their partners in a respectful way, they are open to learning from each other and they are transparent.
