Social Responsibility

Kingston Companies has a long standing commitment to social responsibility and sustainability reaching back over 30 years and forward far into the future.

Sourcing: At Kingston we focus diligently on the agricultural practices of the farms that supply our company and supporting farmers who share a like commitment to minimize the use of pesticides and maximize efficiency of water and land resulting in a natural balance of sustainability.

Facilities: Our facilities across the country and other parts of the world where we grow and pack our products constantly strive to keep our environmental impact in check. We feel no improvement is too large nor small and encourage our employees in bringing their ideas to the table.

Being a Multi-National grower shipper we use our international reach to the benefit of those in need such as our Souls Foundation project.


Souls Foundation

The drive behind the Souls Foundation developed during a holiday in Thailand in December 2004, when cofounders and longtime friends, Dave Kingston and Dean Armstrong explored the possibility of using their skills and resources to help others. They discussed their options on the island of Phuket just days before it was hit by the Asia Tsunami. The devastation that followed strengthened their resolve to develop the foundation, and within weeks they were providing emergency relief funding in Thailand.

Using a creative and innovative fusion of activities we aim to change the lives of children in the moment and most importantly in the future. Our programs hinge on collaborative cooperation of grassroots level, community-based groups, both local and international teachers, community leaders and of course the children themselves. We believe that this collaborative approach empowers both teachers and students, introducing them to new approaches to education, without undermining their valuable work. We offer children a new vision of the future by encouraging them to think independently and critically, explore their individuality and enhance their communities in ways that challenge conventional approaches to education.
