In 2025, 100% of our nuts will come from farms where water is safeguarded.
The problem with nuts and water usage
- Most of the nuts grow best in areas with a Mediterranean climate where water is often a scarce resource. Its usage has to be optimized and properly shared while preserving local ecosystems.
- The yield of nuts trees is directly impacted by the quantity of water they receive. In some regions, flooding is used to water almonds, a practice that is not as effective as drip irrigation where water is directed on the roots of the plant.
- In parallel, with climate change, producers notice higher risk of extreme weather conditions including both drought and flooding.
In this context, it is key to ensure the nut producers we work with know how to use water efficiently to produce their precious nuts at no cost to their surroundings.
