How Our Products Get to You
Traina Foods ships products nationally, and our shipping department can make shipping arrangements customized to your needs. We are located in Patterson, California, conveniently off I-5, the west coast’s major north-south highway, so picking up from our location is easy and convenient for many of our customers. We use valued truck service partners with the best rates and on-time records. Our products are sold FOB origin. We can also prepay and add the freight to the invoice. Alternately, customers can arrange their own shipments. Minimum orders are 200 lbs. Net weight on a pallet will range from 1500-2000 lbs. depending on the case size of the products ordered.
How to Store Our Dried Fruit
Dried fruit is an ideal ingredient in restaurant kitchens as it has an extended shelf life, and occupies less shelf space than fresh or canned fruit. Traina Foods products are shipped in cardboard boxes with an inner plastic bag for easy storage.
Our sun dried fruit can be stored refrigerated at 45˚, or stored frozen. Store our products for up to a year under refrigeration (45˚F) or up to a year and a half frozen. After opening, be sure to close the bag tightly to avoid unnecessary exposure to moisture. It is not necessary to refrigerate raisins, dates or prunes after opening.
