At Americold, we proudly give back to our communities as part of our “cold hands, warm heart” culture, and 2020 has been a year like no other. In response to COVID-19 and other events, we increased our support to charitable organizations around the world. As we take time to reflect on the year, we are proud of the support we’ve provided to the communities in which we live and work.
When someone mentions Thanksgiving dinner, the image that traditionally comes to mind includes turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. As one of the very few commercially grown fruits native to the United States, the cranberry symbolically represents an American harvest on our holiday tables. Cranberries are primarily grown in northern regions such as Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Jersey, and the Pacific Northwest, with Wisconsin producing more than half of the world’s total crop.
