Driscoll’s is a leading supplier of organic strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Driscoll’s organic berries are grown by independent farmers whose growing and handling operations are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) accredited certifying agency.
All our berries are hand-picked and field-packed, with the exception of blueberries which are sometimes picked using harvesting machines and/or packed in packing facilities.
Driscoll’s berries can be purchased at most large chain supermarkets and club stores throughout the United States and Canada. We encourage you to contact the store first to confirm that the berries you want are available and in stock. Many factors including weather can affect berry availability.

No, berries don’t continue to ripen after they’ve been harvested.
All fresh berries are highly perishable and we recommend that you refrigerate them in their clamshell package at all times until eaten or used as an ingredient. Refrigeration will extend their freshness and shelf life.
As with all fresh produce, we recommend that you wash your berries before enjoying them. However, you should never wash your berries until just before you are ready to eat or use them as the moisture will decrease their shelf life.
Yes, fresh berries can be easily frozen and enjoyed until you are ready to use them. Here are some helpful tips about freezing berries.
Driscoll’s has a strict Quality Assurance Program in place from the field through harvest and distribution. We work hand-in-hand with our distribution and retail partners to make certain the berries you purchase are of the highest quality. Many factors can affect the shelf life of our berries. The location of the farm, weather, growing practices and the type of plant can all affect the freshness of the berry. Due to these varying factors, a ‘best used by’ date isn’t applied. We recommend consuming the berries soon after purchase. For more information on how to care for and handle our berries, please visit our Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry pages.

No, Driscoll’s berries are naturally sweet, flavorful and beautiful looking. Driscoll’s mission is to continually delight our berry consumers by providing “Only the Finest Berries.” Our patented berry varieties come from years of breeding to naturally produce the best tasting berry for our consumers.
No, Driscoll’s berries are not genetically modified. Driscoll’s Research and Development department is the industry leader in the development of premium berry plants that utilize only proven natural and traditional breeding process to create our superior berries.
Driscoll’s primary concern is for the wholesomeness of our product and the safety of berry consumers. For this reason, any pesticide used must be in compliance with federal and state laws, and must comply with the registration policies of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). They must also be within the legal tolerances enforced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (US FDA). To reduce the use of pesticides, Driscoll’s independent farmers use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) method, which uses a combination of natural and synthetic means to reduce disease and control pests.
Irradiation is a process that preserves food by using a low dose of high energy gamma rays to kill any germs and insects, thus slowing the maturation process and extending shelf life. Driscoll’s does not use irradiation because we believe our harvest and cooling processes are highly effective in maintaining fruit quality and shelf life.
Driscoll’s has a stringent Global Food Safety program in place. Our Global Food Safety program ensures that our berries are produced with the highest standards of safety regardless of where they’re produced. The farmers who produce Driscoll’s berries must strictly adhere to our Food Safety program. To ensure compliance, Driscoll’s conducts over 2,500 audits annually at fields, packing houses and coolers.
Our clamshell packages are stamped with the international recycling code, which is three chasing arrows within a triangle with a number inside to designate the level of recyclability of the package. Currently our packaging is marked with the recycling code #1 which is the most acceptable recyclable packaging. Containers are PET, Polyethylene Terephthalate.
Driscoll’s doesn’t sell or ship berries direct to consumers. You can find our premium berries in grocery and club stores around the country. Please visit Where to Buy to find a list of retailers that carry Driscoll’s berries throughout the year.
Because Driscoll’s unique variety of plants are patented, our plants and seeds are not for sale and can’t be grown by anyone other than our independent farming partners.
