Growing the fruit business starts with fruit producers

apple orchardNo matter how cutting edge or beneficial, no new produce item gets to market without the support of producers – growers, packers, shippers, marketers, wholesalers and distributors. Founded by a fruit grower, our company understands that taking a new innovation to market starts with the production side of the supply chain.

Arctic® apples reflect OSF’s commitment to improving our industry. The benefits of growing, packing and selling Arctic apples include:

Growers:

  • The competitive advantage of an excitement-generating new entry into the apple category
  • Less cullage due to finger bruising, bins rubs and other blemishes that occur during harvesting and packing line handling
  • Higher packout rates
  • Incremental increase in fruit packing out at a higher grade

Packer/shippers:

  • The competitive advantage of a new entry into the apple category
  • Less bin rub and packing line bruising
  • More flexibility in scheduling of packing
  • Higher late-season fruit pressure for delicate varieties such as Golden Delicious, as warming fruit prior to packing will no longer be necessary
  • Higher quality fruit to sell
  • Exciting new product to highlight to your customers

Marketers, wholesalers and distributors:

  • Higher quality fruit to sell
  • Less shrink, higher rings means money in your pocket
  • Exciting new product to highlight to your customers
