Field & Horticulture:
The Sage Fruit office recently established a logistics department which is responsible for scheduling loading appointments, as well as meeting customer needs in freight delivery. In addition, each warehouse has their own logistics department that is responsible for the shipping of all product.
Our quality assurance program begins in the field and continues through customer delivery. Once the fruit arrives, our quality control personnel inspects the fruit prior to packing, during packing and just before shipping to make certain only the very best makes it to the fresh market.
We have four apple packing facilities, as well as a state of the art cherry packing plant. We are considered one of the premier grower/shipper operations in WA, and are known most for high quality and a high level of service.
Each season, from bloom to harvest, we spend countless hours in the field determining what will be available for customers in the upcoming season. This diligence allows us to accurately predict sizing and grade availability, as well as pricing trends. Our production department determines what to pack and when to pack it.
Sales & Marketing:
