Sustainability in almonds

ofi's goals include a commitment to reach and exceed the industry standard by 2030 and reduce our scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions in line with the 1.5 degrees pathway.

Sustainability challenges facing the almond supply chain

Almonds can only grow in a handful of places with ideal climate and growing conditions - including Australia and California, where ofi's own orchards are located. But rising global temperatures are making these growing regions increasingly prone to drought. ofi recognizes the importance of using water as efficiently as possible so as to not waste a drop. We strive to produce more while using less, by implementing or investing in sustainable practices such as state-of-the-art irrigation systems and creating pollinator habitats with bee-friendly plants. As partners of the Almond Boards of both Australia and California, we actively seek to participate in industry leading sustainability initiatives and best practices.

Reducing our water footprint through innovative technologies

Water is conserved across all ofi almond orchards, resulting in local landscapes and ecosystems being better protected from the negative effects of inefficient water use.

Stepping up orchard carbon capture activities, processing efficiency and using the latest innovations in smart-farm technology

Carbon emissions are reduced by implementing climate-smart practices and improving resource-use efficiency.

We are responsible for protecting our crops and consumers' food from pests that cause disease and damage

We provide more nutrients, carbon, beneficial insects and organic matter into the ecosystem, versus what we take during production and practice sustainable, cost-effective farming practices.

Farming communities are at the heart of our operations

The communities in which we operate are equipped with skills to thrive economically and are resilient and strong.
