Citrus Wax, Stone Fruit Oils and Packinghouse Equipment

Our goal is to provide high-quality, fully traceable fruit coatings for citrus, stone fruit and melons as well as provide effective packinghouse machinery in order to protect your products while also reducing your citrus wax and stone fruit oils costs.

Quality is Our Top Priority

We produce the highest quality and most effective non-morpholine, carnauba based coatings in the industry. We’re proud of the work we’ve done to have established the best postharvest practices in compliance with US Food Safety Regulations.

We work with local, state, federal authorities, and pesticide manufacturers to assure all postharvest treatments are in compliance at all levels: Purchasing, transportation, storage, application and disposal. And we will work with you on establishing the best postharvest practices to assure compliance with US Food Safety Regulations.
