At Dragonberry Produce, everything is done with intention and purpose. As President, Amy Nguyen brings her passion to all aspects of the business and facilities, guided by the principle that each element should “Be Beautiful, Intelligently Designed, and Meaningful”. That attention to detail and focus on quality has driven Dragonberry’s success as a leading produce company specializing in unique fruits.
Partnering with PineSpire in the Clean Fuels Program (CFP) in Oregon has allowed Dragonberry to create revenue from operating electric material handling equipment and will increase with new EV chargers and e-TRU chargers. This program aligns with their guiding principles on sustainability:
“Sustainability is Smart”Amy Nguyen, President, Dragonberry Produce
Located in Canby, Oregon, Dragonberry’s facility was the first LEED-Certified building for produce distribution in Oregon! The Dragonberry facilities incorporate all of the following elements:
- Zen Garden Landscaping to provide a beautiful space for all employees and the community to enjoy while also conserving water and fostering native plant species
- Meticulously designed Air Quality throughout all working spaces to ensure employees in offices and on the floor benefit from natural light and clean air. This also optimizes lighting efficiency and reduce operating costs.
- Using an Electric Fleet of lift trucks, moving to electric Transport Refrigeration Units and providing EV Charging for employees. This reduces operating costs, dramatically cuts fuel costs, and adds a benefit for employees looking to fuel their own EVs.
The smart investments are contributing to Dragonberry’s growth: a second facility will be done in 2022 and a third in following years. This expansion will house Dragonberry’s sweet nut production line and will use the same principles of creating a happy and healthy work environment.
