Grimmway Farms Announces Pasco Facility is Up and Running
BAKERSFIELD, CA - Grimmway Farms’ Pasco, Washington, baby carrot processing facility has been activated, bringing the power to provide customers with freight savings and additional shipping options throughout the July–November harvest.
“We’re pleased to offer more shipping options to our customers in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada. Providing access to our baby carrots through this additional resource allows these customers to better serve their markets,” Jeff Huckaby, President of Grimmway Farms, commented. “Our Pasco facility is a great option for customers and distribution centers that manage high volumes of both conventional and organic varieties of our baby carrots. We look forward to leveraging this facility to provide our customers with an outstanding experience throughout this busy harvest season.”
Grimmway’s Pasco facility was modeled after the company’s premier baby carrot processing facility, the Arvin, California-based Malaga facility–designed for optimal efficiency and minimal waste, according to a press release.
2017 marks the first time that Grimmway’s Pasco facility is being operated at larger capacity following two seasons of small runs. Now, Grimmway says it is ready to enhance customer shipping logistics of its most popular items: orange cut and peeled baby carrots.
The company added that customers who obtain various types of produce from growers in the Pacific Northwest can reduce their transportation and logistical costs by combining its baby carrots with other commodities via the Pasco facility.
