Progress in the Midst of Uncertainty
Reflecting on all that’s occurred since our founding, one thought seems to sum it up better than others—it’s been quite a ride! As the following timeline demonstrates, ours is a history defined by forward progress, often in spite of the uncertainty around us. Through 100 years characterized by economic anxiety, geo-political turmoil and breathtaking technological change, Universal has managed to adapt to changing agricultural practices, build a global presence, embrace state of the art technology and emerge as the recognized industry leader.
We’re indebted to those who’ve traveled with us—our investors, our employees, our growers and, especially, our customers. To all we say, "thank you". We’re grateful for your confidence, your help, your friendship and our relationships. And, we hope you’ll continue with us on the journey ahead.
