In his new position, longtime board member Mark Lundberg leads the company’s board of directors, which helps to guide all aspects of the company’s operation, ensuring that Lundberg Family Farms remains aligned with the founders’ vision, while operating successfully in the current business environment. He has served as vice chair for the past seven years and is committed to maintaining Lundberg Family Farms’ core values of product quality, environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility.

“It’s a tremendous honor to lead our family business into the future while holding fast to the traditions and values that have guided us in the past,” said Lundberg, a member of the third generation of Lundbergs to operate the family-owned business. “I especially want to acknowledge my cousin, Jessica Lundberg, for her steadfast leadership as board chair during the past seven years.”

Jessica will continue to serve on the board of directors and hold a senior management role with the company.

Lundberg is a family practice medical doctor and has served as the Butte County Public Health Officer for the past 16 years. He is the eldest son of Harlan Lundberg, one of the four brothers who developed Lundberg Family Farms branded consumer food products, to complement their farming operations. Lundberg received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University, his Masters in Public Health from UC Berkeley, and his Doctor of Medicine degree from UC San Francisco Medical School.

Since 1937, the Lundberg Family has been farming rice and producing rice products at their farms in the Sacramento Valley. Now led by its third generation, Lundberg Family Farms still uses organic and eco-positive farming practices to produce wholesome, healthful rice products while protecting and improving the environment for future generations.
