Canada: New boutique packing facility in Southern Okanagan Valley

The Star Group through Consolidated Fruit Packers (CFP) is expanding with its own state of the art packing facility in the Southern Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada.

Located in Osoyoos, this central location will enable CFP and The Star Group to invest a significant and long term interest in the future of the Okanagan Valley. The packing facility is equipped with a state of the art cherry packing machine and an apple packing line. The facility will help to expand programs with some of the finest Canadian growers in conjunction with some of the top retailers in Canada, the USA and around the globe.

CFP and The Star Group have over 25 years experience in tree fruit marketing which will be significant when the boutique facility is operational in March, 2015.

‘We look at this as the beginning of a relationship to work hand in hand with growers who are passionate about the quality they produce. CFP and The Star Group are excited to work with these growers on best practices to ensure the finest quality Canadian fruit is being produced. We will aid growers in selecting varieties that have long term relevance to retailers and consumers. By working side by side with growers and government, we can ensure the highest food safety standards and quality are available to consumers. And we can supply equipment to ensure the most innovative packaging ideas are available for grower success,’ commented David Karwacki, CEO The Star Group.
