Spread the World
We are one world. The trouble is, we’ve only met about .00001% of ourself. But what if we could get to know ourself a little better? What if we could introduce the world to the world? Sharing the most fundamental part of who we are — the food we eat — with people near and far? Then we might discover friends we didn’t know we had. And, in the process, realize this world is far smaller — and tastier — than we ever imagined.
A Little Bit of History
That idea was what led us to found Sabra Blue & White Foods in Queens, NY, way back in 1986. Starting with hummus, eggplant dips and babaganoush spreads, we helped introduce thousands — then millions — of people to a fresher, more mindful way of eating. Since then, we’ve added fresh salsa, authentic guacamole, and deliciously healthy innovations like our Greek Yogurt vegetable dips. All with the goal of bringing people together, one bite at a time.
It’s been almost 30 years since that first bowl of hummus, but we’re still just getting started. Today we are owned by two independent global food companies — PepsiCo and Strauss Group — but we are led, as we’ve always been, by our customers. We couldn’t be more excited for the journey ahead.

Our Social Responsibility
We at Sabra are not only committed to the products we create, but to the people, places, and environment that help us along our adventure. It’s our firm belief that our corporate social responsibility directly impacts our future, which is why we are committed to helping our environment, caring for our community and staff, and promoting better nutrition.
Preserving Our Planet
When you’re inspired by the different flavors of the world, as we are, it’s hard not to be a little inspired by the world itself. Which is why we at Sabra feel a responsibility to the environment and our planet.
We’ve taken great strides to make our company as eco-friendly as possible. Take, for example, our new plant in Richmond, Virginia. 20% of the building is constructed from recycled materials and almost all of the construction waste materials will be recycled. To make the plant as energy efficient as possible, we will implement innovative and eco-friendly designs like a reflective roof that cuts our cooling needs and heat recovery systems that cut our heating needs. In fact, at least 35% of the building’s energy will come from renewable resources. That’s equivalent to offsetting the yearly electricity use of 573 households a year!
But of course having an eco-friendly factory doesn’t mean much if what you produce isn’t also environmentally friendly. That's why we’ve invested three years into developing new packaging for all our products. Sabra’s new packaging is made from 30-45% post consumer recycled plastic. That change itself saves 325,000 gallons of gasoline and 319 metric tons of carbon a year. All of which is proof that although our package lid maybe be red, we’re doing a lot to be green.
Supporting the Community
Though we often talk about adventure, we appreciate the places we call home as much as anyone else. And with offices and facilities in New York, Virginia, and California, we’re lucky to call some of the most interesting and diverse communities home.
Giving back to those communities, and to the nation as a whole, is an integral part of our mission. Sabra supports causes, communities, and events throughout the country with generous financial and product contributions. We have informally adopted two community centers near our plant in Virginia as well. Our employees have enjoyed making the facilities over—fresh paint, new furniture, a fitness center, and even new toys. It’s all a part of being good neighbors.
Committed to Our Staff
Our commitment to our employees at Sabra has been an integral part of our character since the very beginning. From the outset, we’ve believed that the best products are created by people working together with a combined passion and vision, in an open and diverse environment. This team approach has given us our unique culture, which we cherish.
Dedicated to Nutrition
We’re proud to bring the best of the world’s authentic recipes to your table with our family of refrigerated dips and spreads. Our hummus is made with fresh herbs, spices, and chickpeas grown right here in the U.S. Sabra Salsa has fresh cut vegetables, spices, and Roma style tomatoes grown in California while our new line of Guacamole is made of Mexican-grown Hass Avocados. Our all-natural Greek Yogurt Veggie Dips have 67% fewer calories and 88% less fat than the leading sour cream dips.
We believe that people want to make smart, delicious, and convenient choices when it comes to the foods they share with loved ones. Because the best adventures, ultimately, are shared.
