Built to Last.

Sustainability isn't just a fad or a marketing tool here; at HWA, it's integrated into everything we do. Over 95% of our growers have moved from traditional irrigation methods to utilize sophisticated water-saving technologies. Ag-tech solutions such as this help us stay at the forefront of our increasingly fine-tuned industry. Growing and processing almonds is an energy and resource intensive effort, but HWA is committed to using less to produce more.

Certified B Corporation

As a Certified B Corporation, Harris Woolf Almonds celebrates its official commitment to inclusive, equitable, and regenerative practices. B Corp™ status is bestowed on those businesses that pass the nonprofit B Lab™'s rigorous B Impact Assessment; it's a comprehensive gauge of a company's positive effect on all its stakeholders, from customers to employees to community residents and the environment. Together, B Corps—including Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, Eileen Fisher, and now Harris Woolf Almonds—form a global movement to use business as a force for good.

Bees

During February and March, bee keepers and their honey bees travel to California. That's the largest movement of pollinators in the world, and it transforms hundreds of billions of almond blossoms into hundreds of billions of delicious almonds. So you can understand why Harris Woolf proudly supports a number of leading non-profit organizations devoted to the health of bees and other invertebrates.

Water

Water is a thriving almond industry's most essential input. Our future depends on prioritizing creative ways to be more efficient with how we use this key resource. We are committed to implementing new systems, both within our processing facilities and orchards, in order to get the most utility out of every drop. We've adopted strategies to re-utilize waste water to supplement irrigation and our suppliers invest heavily in water flow monitors so they can better regulate water and eliminate waste.

Grower Showcase: Woolf Farming

Stringent resource planning is of critical importance for Woolf Farming-- one of HWA's founding farms. Woolf Farming constantly works to make their operation more resourceful and bio-dynamic. For example, through effective tracking technologies, Woolf Farming has drastically reduced the amount of tractor time needed to farm; this results in higher soil quality and a carbon offset of nearly 300,000 tons annually-- the equivalent of taking 53,000 cars off the road!

Food Safety

Food safety is crucial for consumers, the environment, and Harris Woolf Almonds. We enact comprehensive, globally recognized safety plans throughout our facilities and continue to lead the way in maintaining a more traceable supply chain. Food safety is why we invest so heavily in optical sorting and employee training. These intelligent, preemptive measures lead to less waste, happier customers, and a safer world.
