Life at Ocean Spray
Culture and Diversity

As employees, we experience first-hand the labor of love our Grower-Owners put into providing healthy fruit for the world to enjoy. Our values reflect their hard work: Respect, Ownership, Innovation and Collaboration. These simple yet powerful values define who we are and why we are here.

With close to 20 processing and receiving facilities and global offices, we employ 2,000 employees worldwide who work throughout our value chain to bring our famous products from our Grower-Owners’ family farms to consumers around the globe. While our jobs range from agribusiness to manufacturing and everything in between, we all share the purpose: to ignite a passion for our cranberries around the world. We do this by producing the best fruit products in the world and growing the Ocean Spray® brand. At the end of the day, none of this can be accomplished without our world class employees.

Our Commitment to Diversity

At Ocean Spray our employees are our greatest asset. Each employee brings with them unique insights, experience, and perspectives. We define diversity as all of the ways that we are different from and similar to each other. Inclusion is about seeking and valuing the perspectives and points of view of those differences and similarities. At Ocean Spray, diversity and inclusion together are about having an environment where employees feel that their unique and individual backgrounds and experiences add value to the organization, and their way of seeing the world is woven into the work that they do.
 
Ocean Spray® branded products are sold across the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world, to a wide variety of people of different ages, personalities, and perspectives. Our consumers are diverse so our program and product portfolio must be, too. Ocean Spray is purposefully nurturing a diverse and inclusive culture so our employees not only have the know-how, but also understand the why as a frame of reference to continue to build this brand.
