Trinity Fruit Company has joined forces with the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) to become members of the How2Recycle® label program. We saw this program as an opportunity to educate our consumers on how to recycle the packaging for our products. We also illustrate to our customers that we are working towards finding ways to help reduce contamination in the recycling stream while striving to ultimately eliminate the use of single use plastics. This move has been well received by the industry, and we are continuing to work through all our packaging to find a solution.
Trinity Fruit Company harvests farm land throughout the entire Central Valley. We have taken steps to create farming methods that implement responsible and environmentally friendly operations in the fields. We harvest in orchards within close proximity. This helps us use less gas in farm vehicles and equipment during travel. Targeted spray systems and zero tillage aid in soil efficiency at a low cost for the environment. We also take into account the materials and tools used to transport products from the field to our production facilities, using boxes and containers that are reusable or recyclable.
Our production facility has been outfitted with a state-of-the-art stainless steel pack line, motion sensor lighting, and solar panels used to displace nearly 100% of the company’s electricity. With the ultimate goal of minimizing waste, our facility’s water is filtered and reused for irrigation in our fields. In order to maintain an eco-friendly operation, we ensure that our facility runs as efficiently as possible.
Here at Trinity Fruit Company, we believe happy and motivated employees create better products. We take the time to nuture and facilitate an environment where all employees feel valued and empowered to do their best work. Within our packing facilities we train and promote our workers so they can do their jobs effectively and safely. We take into account safety guidelines and stay accountable for ensuring that all employees have a clean and safe work environment.
