WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CALIFORNIA COMPANY
TRUE TO OUR ROOTS
We’re proud to be located in beautiful Woodland, California – the gateway to the Capay Valley. Yolo County is one of the top counties in the country for sustainability. The California organic movement started here in the 1970s and cities like Woodland continue to be leaders in the spread of organic agriculture in the United States. Where we make our food is as important to us as what we make. Our community is committed to celebrating its food, farmers, and sustainability practices. Woodland and Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods are committed to Sustaining The Earth, Sustaining You® Learn more about the amazing things going on in our community at www.woodlandfoodagcluster.com, http://www.yolocounty.org/ and www.farmtofork.com .
Building a Sustainable Community in Woodland, California
We’re proud to be part of the Woodland community and its commitment to sustainability. Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods chose to be based in Woodland because we believed in its mission and in the amazing things happening here! Here are a are few of the ways Woodland is helping to build a greener California:
- Reducing Water Consumption – Woodland continues to see 25-45% monthly reductions in water use compared to pre-drought (2013) levels
- Promoting Recycling – community solid waste diversion (recycling, reuse) is annually in the range of 57-64%.
- Planting More Trees – Woodland is literally “The City of Trees”. The community tree campaign is increasing the town’s tree canopy by an average rate of 100 trees per month.
- Building a 21st Century Solar Infrastructure – The combined site of Woodland’s solar system is 2.5MW. Over 10% of Woodland homes have rooftop solar. Community wide, Yolo County has almost 17MW of solar installations and actually exports solar power to the grid.
We started the Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods line nearly 20 years ago because we wanted to make the delicious foods from the McDougall Program accessible to everyone. Over the years, we’ve expanded our product selection to include over 50 delicious, nutritious and convenient meals. We are proud to report today that Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods® is the nation’s leading natural meal cup brand.
