Hudson River Fruit Welcomes New Team Members
MILTON, NY - With an expanding team and bolstered apple program, Hudson River Fruit seems to have its eyes on a beautiful horizon for the coming months.
The family-owned operation has welcomed third generation family member, Kevin Albinder, who brings a healthy background to his new role as Logistics Coordinator.
“Kevin started with the company this month. We are very excited for him to join our team, as he brings with him experience with apples, packing, and shipping,” cousin and fourth generation Owner-Operator Alisha Albinder tells me.
Kevin isn’t the only new face, either. The team has also welcomed Marcela Juarez to be a ground inspector in order to help bolster and maintain the company's growth in offerings.
“Marcela is our new inspector for all inbound and outbound product at all of our packing locations. She has years of experience working in apple packing houses and a background in food safety,” Alisha shares.
And that's not all: Hudson River Fruit is very excited to be packing and shipping the NYS proprietary variety RubyFrost®.
“We are heavily shipping RubyFrost apples right now,” Alisha explains. “One of the unique aspects about this fruit is that it sweetens as it is stored, making it better for distribution in January. It’s tagline, 'The Perfect Winter Fresh Apple,' says it all.”
“We will be pushing many different apple varieties well into the summer,” she assures me.
We will be keeping an eye out, as should you, as we continue to bring you the latest throughout 2018 and beyond.
