Grimmway Farms, Bakersfield, Calif., activated its Pasco, Wash., baby carrot processing facility for the July-November harvesting season.

“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,” says Jeff Huckaby, president. “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 Malaga facility, its premier baby carrot processing facility located in Arvin, Calif., which was designed for optimal efficiency and minimal waste.

2017 marks the first time that Grimmway’s Pasco facility is being operated at larger capacity to offer enhanced customer shipping logistics of orange cut and peeled baby carrots.
