Sage Fruit Company is a sales and marketing firm of northwest tree fruits, located in Yakima, Washington. We are owned by five grower/packer/shippers who joined for the purpose of delivering high-quality produce to consumers. We seek to supply fruit world-wide, year-round.
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. In addition, they are 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, a team of quality control personnel inspects the fruit prior to packing, during packing and before shipping. Their job is to make certain only the very best makes it to the fresh market.
In addition to the field and warehouse staff, Sage Fruit Company employs an eight person sales team, and a five person marketing team. The sales team is located in Yakima, WA and handles the day-to-day business, while our marketing representatives work remotely from 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!”
