Bay Growers is centrally located within 10 kilometers of each of our member/owners orchards, allowing for reduced shipping costs and a reduced carbon footprint.
The storage facility is constructed of heavily insulated concrete panels, making the building very efficient from a heat/cold loss standpoint.The fact that there is virtually no wood in the construction, gives the building a much longer “shelf life” than traditional apple storages.
Our packing facility was the first in Eastern North America to utilize a pre-sort system, which very recently has been upgraded to total defect sorting technology, again a first in eastern North America. This process includes multiple photo’s to pick out even the slightest imperfections on the fruit we are packing for discerning customers, all done without being touched by human hands. The fruit then goes through various pack line systems to be delivered to our customers following regimented just in time procedure, to deliver the freshest, best tasting, local, apples possible.
