WE’RE SAFE, SUSTAINABLE AND SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE
Rivermaid Trading Company invests in sustainable farming. Solar powered energy in our Lodi packing and cold storage facilities allows us to power 60 percent of our electricity needs with renewable energy. We also use recycled plastic in all packaging for our products, all our cardboard is recycled and have a recycled water program for landscaping at our facilities.
We farm using the most sustainable practices, like Integrated Pest Management and advanced irrigation technology, to reduce the use of crop inputs and pesticides.
We also offer organic options for both pears and cherries. Rivermaid is proud to grow and pack pears under the famous ‘Joe Green’ organic label. All organics sold by Rivermaid are certified by California Certified Organic Farmers, which is a USDA National Organic Program accredited organic certification agency
