WE HAVE THE WORLD’S BEST TECHNOLOGY RUN BY SKILLED OPERATORS
Rivermaid Trading Company’s mission is to raise and distribute high-quality, dependable products that nourish our customers and protect our resources. Our facilities allow us to deliver on this mission.
We operate from three different locations in the heart of our growing areas with a combined footprint of 400,000 square feet and a workforce of over 800 people. Our facilities include 5 pear and 3 cherry packing lines, air-forced cooling tunnels and 150,000 square feet of racked cold storage with ethylene monitoring to ensure optimum storage conditions. Rivermaid uses modified atmosphere (MA) technology to create an unsurpassed long-term storage environment.
All facilities are solar powered to reduce our environmental footprint and our businesses are part of the communities where we live and work.
We’ve worked hard over the years to continually improve our operations and have literally searched the world for the very best packing and sorting equipment.
We’ve identified highly skilled individuals to operate our equipment. We’re very proud of the fact that season after season, a team of passionate workers return to Rivermaid – many have been with us for generations.
Sacramento Delta. Located in the historic pear growing region of the Sacramento Delta, Rivermaid operates two pear packing plants. You can’t get any closer to our products from these two facilities. Both the KayDix and Steamboat Orchards packing plants are in the middle of pear orchards! Flexible packing, bagging and cold storage operations allow us maximum flexibility for our customers including a full range of bagged and organic pears, cold storage and the earliest Bosc pears available in California.
WE OPERATE FROM THREE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS IN THE HEART OF OUR GROWING AREAS.
