Sustainability and Stewardship northcoast1
North Coast Organic is committed to using sustainable business practices that make us better stewards of the environment. We strive to operate our business with integrity – we earn the trust of our growers, customers and employees by saying what we mean, matching our behaviors to our words and taking responsibility for our actions.
Our commitment to sustainability:
Renewable Energy – We currently supply more than 50% of our production energy through our on-site roof top solar panels.
Waste Water Management – We have a full time staff member dedicated to minimizing our water usage.
We Use the Whole Apple – We use traditional processing methods to produce our Apple Sauce, Juice and Vinegar so that there’s no waste!
Apple Pumice – Local organic farmers pick up the leftover apple pumice we cannot use in our products multiple times per day to feed their livestock.
Our approach to stewardship:
We seek to fulfill our obligation as global citizens to build a better, stronger and more durable company for future generations, meeting our commitments to stakeholders, acting with an owner mentality, developing our people, and helping improve local communities and the global environment.
We are proud of our reputation as a company that builds solid relationships by acting with consistency and integrity. Many of our fruit grower families have been supplying apples to us since 1922, spanning 3 or 4 generations. Our customers include many well-known food retailers who trust us to provide the freshest organic juices, apple sauces and vinegars for their customers.
