Organically Delicious Fruit
Organically delicious is not just another marketing tagline. It’s a commitment. A commitment that began even before there was a Sutherland Produce. It began when Bill Sutherland first discovered and tasted the organic difference almost 40 years ago. After a decade in the field, Sutherland Produce was founded on a commitment to deliver fresh from farm to kitchen the best tasting organically grown fruit from top organic growers in the West. Growers, most with Sutherland since the beginning, who share in this commitment to consistently provide the finest organic fruit possible, while maintaining the strictest organic standards and the highest regard for a sustainable environment.

Organically Certified Growers
Since 1977, Bill Sutherland has played an active role in helping define, shape and establish the standards of organic farming. So when he founded Sutherland Produce in 1987, he understood the importance of representing only the best quality growers. They would need to share his commitment for producing the best-tasting, nutritiously delicious organic produce, while adhering to the strictest sustainable agricultural standards that he and other pioneers worked so hard to establish. He would consider his growers true partners, working with them to deliver consistent quality and value from farm to table. As a result, both Sutherland and its growers would prosper, and in very short order, the company would earn the prestigious “XXXX” Blue Book rating.
Today, Sutherland Produce represents organically certified growers, many from the company’s first days, throughout California, the Pacific Northwest and Mexico.Meet Our Growers
