We have nothing but gratitude for everything they do – from manually removing pests in the mud and rain instead of using pesticides, to creatively recycling walnut shells to generate energy to process more walnuts. All for the sake of growing foods that are healthy for people, and in a way that takes care of the planet for future generations.
As if that wasn’t enough, many of them also invest in improving the lives of their workers and their communities, from helping to improve the livelihoods of women smallholder farmers in developing nations, to providing medical care and scholarships for workers.
