A Message From Western Growers

To our valued Western Growers Members:

It is imperative that every American take steps to avoid transmission of the coronavirus in order to reduce exposure rates, especially to those at greater risk.

This has compelled almost every business in our country to change operations immediately, including ours.

Effective Monday, March 16, most employees in the Western Growers Family of Companies will be working from home. We are also suspending non-essential in-person meetings and gatherings and will shift to virtual meetings wherever feasible.

Our employees will have the guidance, tools and resources they need to continue providing you with exceptional service for the duration of this national emergency.

As we all adjust to the challenges of this pandemic, our first concern is with the health of our own families. Still, we are all part of an economy that provides Americans “the best medicine in the world,” the fresh produce that is even more important right now. I am proud of the calm and focused response of our 445 dedicated employees across our several businesses. From our headquarters in Irvine, California to our 10 offices throughout California, Arizona and Washington, D.C., the Western Growers team has demonstrated professionalism in service to our members and clients. The challenges of this pandemic notwithstanding, they remain fully committed to enhancing your competitiveness and profitability.

We will get through this the same way we have always tackled challenges facing our industry – together. Thank you for being part of the Western Growers family, and please don’t hesitate to let us know of any concerns as we navigate through this crisis together.

President and CEO
