Packinghouse Operations


Citrus packing is all about protecting the fruit so it arrives to you clean, and as fresh as if you just picked the fruit from the tree. Peace River follows a safe, scientifically sound, and time-tested process for postharvest care of citrus that keeps the fruit fresh and tasty. Our process involves grading, washing, waxing, packing, and refrigeration.

Grading
Where we remove any fruit that does not meet USDA Grade #1 standards
Washing
Gives the fruit a nice appearance and ensures the peel is safe for consumption
Waxing
Natural carnauba wax prevents the fruit from drying and prolongs shelf life
Packing
Carefully packing the citrus fruit into a bag or carton
Refrigeration
Kept at 38° F to lock in the freshness
