Job Description

Our R&D Team is looking for a Sustainability Intern for the Summer of 2024! All internships start June 4th, 2024 and are 10-12 weeks long. Position location: We're all about flexibility! This will be a hybrid role based out of our corporate headquarters in Lakeville, MA with Mondays & Fridays remote. Who We are Looking For: Are you passionate about tackling climate change, supporting farmers, and building a more sustainable and just world? Then Ocean Spray’s Global Impact and Sustainability team is a perfect fit for you. The R&D and Sustainability department is looking to add a Sustainability intern to its growing Sustainability and ESG function for the Summer 2024. Ocean Spray’s mission is to connect our farms to families for a better life. Together with our farmer-owners, we are dedicated to the health of people, communities, and our planet. We’re continuously improving our impact by addressing issues such as climate change, food waste, water stewardship, and human rights across our entire business. Our three core pillars keep us aligned to our mission. Through these pillars we seek to:
  • Advance Regenerative Cranberry Agriculture
  • Create Sustainable Operations and Supply Chains
  • And Design Purposeful Products and Packaging
The Sustainability team collaborates with Agriculture Sciences, Marketing, Engineering, Quality, Procurement, Operations, Legal, and Sales to execute these initiatives throughout the Cooperative. We’re seeking a smart, savvy individual who can support initiatives across the sustainability pillars. It is imperative the individual have strong research and analytical skills, be able to maintain harmonious cross functional collaboration, and develop balanced recommendations for projects. What You Will Do & What You Will Learn: The Sustainability and ESG Intern will support ongoing sustainability projects across pillars and complete an individual research project to present recommendations at the end of the internship. The intern will work alongside the sustainability team to advance our global impact strategy. You will learn and be exposed to multiple aspects of integrating sustainability into a branded consumer packaged goods (CPG) company including agricultural production, manufacturing, packaging, and sales. You will have the opportunity to think creatively and learn about pressing global issues. Projects will help hone the intern’s analytical, design, and communication skills. What You’ll Need:
  • Currently pursuing a B.S. or M.S. in Sustainability, Environmental Science, Business, Political Science or Engineering, or other relevant discipline.

  • Must adapt well to change and be able to prioritize shifting short and long term project deadlines.
  • Proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Who We Are: You might have our iconic cranberry juice in your fridge or have gotten into heated holiday debate about what’s better - canned or fresh cranberry sauce. But did you know that the hardworking people growing the superfruit in our products are 700 family farmers that own our cooperative? They entrust us with what is most precious to them to create new and innovative products that will delight consumers and grow this beloved brand today and into the future.

Team members, farmers, consumers and communities alike-we value what makes us unique and strive to connect our farms to families for a better life by living our values:
  • Grower Mindset – We embrace our grower-owners innovative spirit and heritage through confidence, learning and focus on the future.
  • Sustainable Results – Guided by purpose, we are focused on delivering results for our grower-owners.
