Treehouse California Almonds, a provider of almond ingredients to the baking and confectionery industries, was among a coalition of industry innovators receiving the New Hope Regeneration and Sustainability Award on Thursday, March 9 for their trailblazing efforts to promote sustainable almond farming methods.
The award was presented to The Almond Project, a multi-year, farmer-led partnership that is identifying more sustainable almond farming methods to help create a more resilient future for almonds. The project brings together advocates—farmers, scientists, brands, technical services providers, processors, and customers—who collaborate to evolve the health of the nation’s food system. In addition to Treehouse California Almonds, the partners in The Almond Project include White Buffalo Land Trust, Pacific Ag Management, Simple Mills, Daily Harvest, and Cappello’s.
The New Hope Regeneration and Sustainability Award was announced at the New Hope Community Purpose and Impact Awards ceremony on March 9, 2023, as part of the New Hope Network/Natural Products Expo West event in Anaheim, California.
“All of us at Treehouse are honored to be receiving this award for our contributions to The Almond Project,” said Mauro Trevisani, CEO of Treehouse California Almonds. “As a leading almond ingredient provider we are proud to work closely with our partners to lead a movement that’s important both to the environment and to the communities that rely on agriculture to sustain their daily lives.”
The New Hope Community Purpose and Impact Awards recognize individual and organizations who stand out as directly aligning with New Hope’s purpose to cultivate a prosperous, high-integrity consumer packaged goods and retail ecosystem that creates health, joy, and justice for all people and regenerates the planet.
