Welch’s is a cooperative of about 900 family-farmer owners, who for generations have planted, cared for and harvested Welch’s Concord and Niagara grapes with passion and skill.
The close bond that exists between the growers and the products that are made from their produce is a key part of what makes our grape juices, real fruit pieces and juice powder so special.
Welch’s farmers are the beating heart of our organization and their passion and skill is evident in the special grapes they grow and careful delivery to Welch’s, which translates into high quality consumer products and ingredients.
Provenance and authenticity is integral to everything we do and we can trace each and every Concord and Niagara grape delivered to Welch’s back to where it was grown.
Welch’s growers are committed to producing Concord and Niagara grapes that are second to none in terms of quality and wholesomeness.
Welch’s grapes are grown in different regions around North America. This diversity means we can source and blend the best grapes from across the continent to create superior grape ingredients and that we can maintain supply to our customers even when weather events impact the crop in a particular growing area.
