Sage Fruit Company is a sales and marketing firm located in Yakima, Washington. We are owned by three apple/pear packing companies who joined for the purpose of delivering high quality fruit to consumers. We seek to supply fruit world-wide, year-round. With those goals in mind, we have partnered with an additional fourth apple packing facility.
Sage Fruit is a growing business. Since 2000, we have grown at twice the annual rate as the industry as a whole. Each of our vertically integrated warehouses is continuously adding acreage to their well-established farms, while also replanting current acreage with higher density trees. It is important to us to remain above the curve when it comes to discovering new apple varieties. But, we also work hard to determine the most desired current varieties, and are planting accordingly.
Our team consists of numerous horticultural specialists who work with growers in the field. They ensure our fruit is grown to the highest standards, and harvested at the peak of freshness. Once at the warehouse, our quality control personnel inspects the fruit prior to packing, during packing and just before shipping. Their job is to make certain only the very best makes it to the fresh market.
In addition to our field and warehouse staff, we have a six person sales team, as well as a five person marketing team. The sales team is located in Yakima, WA and handles our day-to-day business, while our marketing team works remotely in various regions throughout the country. Together, the sales and marketing teams work diligently to provide superior customer service.
We work hard on the farm, in the packing facilities, and in sales in order to deliver “An Exceptional Eating Experience!”
