Gerber Is Reimagining Food for Baby

In our changing world, doing Anything for Baby means Gerber has to rise to the challenge. So that's exactly what we're doing. We've embarked on a mission to reimagine food for baby and create food that's as good for the planet as it is for our little ones. Gerber will be 100% carbon neutral by 2035, staring with Gerber Organics and Natural jars and pouches by next year. We're going green in our power, packaging and planting to create something completely unique: Climate Forward Nutrition for baby. Because healing the land means healing their future--and there's nothing we wouldn't do for the ones who matter most.

Planting 1 Million Trees

We’re committed to planting one million trees by the end of 2021 in coordination with the National Forest Foundation and One Tree Planted. You can discover them for yourself rooted in CA, CO, GA, MI, NC, OR, WA, and SC.

Going Renewable

Going Renewable

Power is powerful, and how you source it matters. That's why we’ll be sourcing 100% Renewable Electricity for all Gerber owned manufacturing and distribution centers by 2025.

Recyclable Packaging

Our Recyclable Packaging

And we’re not stopping there. By 2025, we’ve set on making 100% of our packaging recyclable and reusable. Partnering with TerraCycle, we've found new ways to make sure items that were previously unrecyclable can now feel the love.

Responsible Supply Chain

Our Responsible Supply Chain

To keep the world as pure as our little ones, we're diverting 100% of our waste from landfill to more sustainable facilities, and thanks to lighting upgrades, operational efficacies and more, nothing goes to waste.

And beyond

2019

In 2019, we partnered with international recycling company TerraCycle® to help give hard-to-recycle baby food packaging a new life.

2020

We changed the way baby eats and the way you should recycle.

We introduced IncrediPouch, the first-of-its-kind, single-material baby food pouch designed for the future of recycling.

2020

Later in 2020, we wasted no time diverting 100% of waste from landfill at our factories to more sustainable facilities.

2022

By 2022, Gerber Organic and Natural pouches and jars will be carbon neutral.

But there's so much more to it than that. We're committing to action today, tomorrow, and for generations to come!

2025

By 2025, all Gerber owned manufacturing and distribution centers will source 100% Renewable Electricity.

Now is the right time to make some major changes in what kind and how much energy we use.

2035

By 2035, all of Gerber is going carbon neutral.

Doing the right thing for baby and for planet go hand in hand. We’re eager to create a healthier world for all.

And Beyond

This is only the beginning.

In time, and by research, our efforts toward sustainability will only get richer.

DOING OUR PART

The Power of 1 Million Trees

Trees are natural superheroes. They're able to retain carbon in the soil while purifying our air, encouraging biodiversity, and keeping our earth healthy. That's why we're going big and planting one million trees in the US by the end of 2021.

Our pioneering Research Farms are helping implement farming techniques that nourish the land. We're working with expert partners to grow food in a way that respects our earth and creates food made better for baby!

Cover Crops

Carbon Neutrality

Cover Crops

Cover crops act like a blanket over the land, keeping carbon in the earth where it can nourish our produce. This helps keep our crops and our air happy and healthy.

Reduced Tillage

Reduced Tillage

At Gerber, we believe in being good to our planet. Reducing the tillage that we use in our farming processes may ensure that the land can remain rich and be sustained for generations to come.
