For more than 50 years we have taken our lead from our growers who care for their land and trees generation after generation harvesting good fruit for good health. Simply stated - we are conscientious about our impact on the environment and in our communities and we do what we can to make a positive difference.
PEOPLE, PLANET, PROFIT
Something is sustainable when it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Our growers know the meaning of caring for their land and trees to provide for their families generation after generation and the value of respecting Mother Nature and our Planet. As a grower-owned cooperative, we share those values and know its not just about current profits. We believe that it’s about People, Planet and Profit.
The core principles behind our practices are to:
- Minimize harm
- Maximize benefit
- Be accountable & responsive to key stakeholders,
- Support strong financial results
Long before “sustainability” was a buzzword, Tree Top began taking steps to reduce its energy use and to reduce waste and environmental impacts. A formal sustainability process was established in 2008 to lead, track and report our progress.
By listening to stakeholders, including business partners, customers, the public, employees, etc., we determined our primary focus areas. Our Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship Committee targeted in on those areas and focused the organization’s efforts on collecting baseline data and developing a plan to address each area more proactively.
The following are our primary focus areas:
- Manufacturing Plant Energy Use
- Water Use and Waste Water
- Employee Welfare
- Community Support & Volunteerism
