Grimmway Farms

PO Box 81498, Bakersfield, CA 93380

If Bugs Bunny were to visit Grimmway, he would think he’d died and gone to heaven. The company, which does business as Grimmway Farms, produces everything carrot — from bagged carrots to carrot coins, carrot juice, carrot sticks, and good ol’ carrot bunches. It is, in fact, the world’s largest producer of baby carrots under the Bunny Luv label; it sells organic vegetables under the Cal-Organic Farms name. The company processes the crops grown on some 40,000 acres of California farmland. Grimmway’s fresh carrots are sold at food retailers and foodservice operators worldwide. As if carrots weren’t enough, it also offers potatoes and citrus fruits. The family-owned company was formed by Rod and Bob Grimm in 1968.

ESG/Ethical Impact

On behalf of the more than 8,000 team members of Grimmway Farms, I am proud to share our first formal report that explains our company’s Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts and commitments. As the largest carrot grower in the world, and the country’s largest grower of organic produce, we take pride in our ability to provide fresh, healthy products to millions of consumers around the world. It is not a responsibility we take lightly – or for granted. Three years ago, the term “ESG” was not in my business vocabulary. Today, in one way or another, it is part of every boardroom and senior leadership conversation, and a lens we apply to all our major decisions. The good news is that the concepts and values inherent in what we now call “ESG” have always been part of the way we do business at Grimmway. From our founding by Rod and Bob Grimm in 1969 to Grimmway’s new ownership in 2020, doing the right thing by the three “Ps” — people, products, and planet — has always been at the heart of our business and the driver of our enduring success. But we also know we must do more. The last two years have shined an intense light on the need to move ESG considerations to the top of our collective decision tree. Each of us – across all business sectors and geographies – has battled the ravages of COVID-19, witnessed unprecedented weather, droughts and fires associated with climate change, and examined equity and social justice issues that illuminate disparities in access to basic human rights and necessities. That is why Grimmway is making new, strategic and long-term investments in reducing our carbon footprint, preserving our natural resources, integrating new technologies and efficiencies across our operations and supply chain, and bringing advanced training and career opportunities to our diverse workforce.
