California continues to be a leader in providing the best produce in the world, and one of the most highly anticipated commodities to come out from California is the cherry. Not only are cherries a treat to eat, but they are also one of the healthiest snacks mother-nature has provided for us. And with the demand for healthy foods increasing today, consumers are turning to the cherry to curb the need for the sweet and healthy treat!
At Delta Packing we take pride in the service we provide to our growers and our customers. California Cherry season by nature, is a highly volatile and fast paced whirlwind of a season, and can present its challenges. But by taking the extra steps toward quality and excellence we eliminate many of the variables that can come up during the long days and nights of the season. As our industry has grown, we have continued to compete at the highest levels as a packing facility providing our customers with the highest level of product, service, and integrity.
Delta Packing - Quality is Priority!
Our Quality Starts in the FieldDelta Packing has developed lasting relationships with some of the finest cherry growers throughout the state. Each season we are progressing along with our growers to ensure the best practices and procedures are being used, and that the cherry growers have what they need to do the right job. To guarantee freshness and high quality to our customers, keeping the cherries cool once harvested is essential. At the time of harvest, the cherries are hand picked and then quickly brought to a cool 45degrees with our hydro-coolers which are on site of the harvest.
Our Packing FacilityOnce cherries arrive at Delta Packing, the cold chain is never broken. Packing a quality box of cherries for our customers is our #1 goal. With that, we are continually upgrading and updating our packing line and technology being used. Whether it is our innovative hydro-cooling system, maximization of sorting capacity, or the newest packaging styles, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our line. In the end, it is the quality that stands out the most to our customers and allows us to continue a successful operation.
Fresh Quality Always ShippedBecause cherries are a perishable commodity, we must take every precaution to keep the cherry cold and fresh. Once the cherries have been packed, they are then shipped all across the world without breaking that cold temperature. Along with the importance of the cold chain, the time it takes from harvest to shipment is just as imperative. To further ensure the freshest cherry possible to the end consumer, our cherries are shipped with in 1 day of harvest.
