The Cold chain is critical for shipping Cherries. We do everything in our power to ensure that the cold chain remains intact until the cherries arrive at market. All of our Cherries are graded, sized and hydro-cooled immediately prior to packaging and we use refrigerated transport professionals to transport them either to market or to our freight forwarders.
By partnering with who we believe are the best freight forwarders in the business we rigidly control our cherries environment during the shipping process. All shipments are equipped with temperature recorders to ensure that this process is followed and documented. We expect to deliver excellence every time whether it's by land, air or sea.
All of our exports are subjected (when required) to a Phytosanitary inspection by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency as per country of destination. All of our packaging meets Country Of Origin Labelling (COOL) standards.
