Our Story:

Rooted in the spirit of our hardworking, multigenerational family farmers for over 150 years, Welch’s has always been about bringing the highest quality, flavorful fruit-based products to our consumers.

Our purpose of nourishing through the goodness of fruit is at the core of everything we do. It unites our growers and employees in a collaborative effort to deliver on our bold ambition: To be the best fruit-based food, beverage, and agricultural cooperative by sustainably creating flavorful moments that delight our customers, consumers and increase grower owner returns.

We are on a relentless journey to be the best – pushing boundaries, challenging the status quo, and taking risks together. As a united force, we are more than just a grape juice company. Welch’s is blazing a trail of innovation by igniting palates and planting seeds for our future growth.

We strive to be our customers’ and consumers’ first choice, our employees’ first choice and enhance the communities where we grow, work and live.
