Packing Services

We never stop growing! We currently service 35 packing houses in California and process more than 33-million shipped cartons a year.

We understand that as a packing house, you often struggle with your wax and machinery providers who provide the same old fruit coatings that have been used for decades. And they supply equipment that’s so outdated it can’t possibly keep up to speed with your efficiency needs. Plus, no one likes to get locked into a long term contract when you don’t know what’s around the corner. Fruit Growers Supply’s Post Harvest Technologies department aims to provide the highest quality wax and the most innovative machinery in the marketplace to help protect your commodities while reducing labor and material costs.

We began providing wax and machinery decades ago for Sunkist. But now we’ve taken that innovation to another level helping different packing houses all throughout the California Central Valley. We are at the forefront of technology and efficient fruit handling practices thanks to our experienced team of service technicians, manufacturing personnel, laboratory technicians, and research and technical staff. We also regularly undergo internal research projects and collaborate with universities and state agencies to stay ahead of the curve. This is how we were able to develop the most innovative, efficient and environmentally friendly fruit coating applications and machinery around.

We deliver quick turnaround times without making you commit to long term contracts. Ask us how our newest cutting-edge packline machines can save you thousands of dollars on wax each year.
