Every Welch’s product is made from Concord and Niagara grapes grown at family farms across the United States. Requiring the right mix of sunshine, rainfall, and cool nights, grapes can be picky about climate - so we grow in regions with the perfect conditions.
Crushing the best out of fruit since 1869.
Welch’s is a co-op owned by farming families across the country who bring their best to every harvest. From their farms to your table, they go the extra mile to deliver a difference you can taste.
We crush the very best out of fruit, so every Welch’s product can help you crush every breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and break time - and all the times in between.
We Are Welch’s
From our families to yours.
