Making a Difference

Our shared future requires all of us to support meaningful and measurable actions around sustainability

At Blue Pacific, we work to be part of the solution and not the problem.  As a purpose-led company, we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint and have been implementing sustainable business initiatives since 2007.  These include:

  • Pursuing a circular economic supply chain
  • Supporting regenerative agriculture
  • Championing water quality and availability
  • Fighting biodiversity loss

Our commitment to a sustainable future takes many forms.  Organic flavor is our flagship portfolio and one of the largest and most established in the industry.  We actively seek partnerships with mission-based suppliers such as Ahiflower Oil® which utilizes regenerative agriculture in its production cycle, and Bella Viva® which has been a Certified Organic Fruit Grower since 2006.   By sourcing “cradle to cradle” ingredients, reducing packaging waste, improving distribution efficiencies, and minimizing freight we are constantly exploring ways to minimize our environmental impact.

We believe our greatest opportunity to make social and environmental change is through our vanilla supply chain.  High demand for the world’s favorite flavor often contributes to predatory buying, labor, and agricultural practices.  This is why we partnered with Natural Extracts International, Ltd (NEI), a producer of ethically and sustainably sourced African vanilla.  Through an innovative educational and economic model that utilizes full traceability, NEI helps local vanilla farmers improve their profits and livelihood.

Sustainability goes beyond living responsibly for the next generation; it’s managing our resources today while planting seeds for the future.  Doing this credibly requires third party validation.  This is why Blue Pacific is working towards becoming one of the first B-certified flavor houses in the world.

As a business operating in the heavy industrial and urban metropolis of Los Angeles County, it’s clear we need to do our part to improve air quality. That is why we offer employees an electric vehicle purchase incentive, provide complimentary electric vehicle charging stations, and have LED lighting installed in our office and plant. We are pursuing our goal to be the first 100% solar and renewable energy-powered flavor company in the US, converting all of those long days of Southern California sunshine into clean, renewable energy every day.
Water Icon WATER
At Blue Pacific, we have a special calling to conserve water (the largest ocean in the world is our namesake). We do our part through the use of low-flow toilets and sinks, 100% recycled water for landscape irrigation, and continuous improvement reviews of our processing water. We donate to Heal the Bay, a local water quality non-profit that educates people about ocean and water conservation. Given California’s historic droughts, our employees believe water should be passionately conserved.
Land Icon LAND
What we harvest from the land is directly related to how we tend to it. When we pioneered organic food flavor in 2000, we wanted to align with farmers and processors who shared our values and mission around environmental and sustainable business practices. Our partners demonstrate their commitment to the land through regenerative agriculture, upcyling of cosmetically imperfect fruit, and organic farming practices. These practices pay off on the palate, enabling us to offer the best-tasting, most trusted organic and natural food flavors in the industry.

Sustainability is a practice, not a pledge
