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 near 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 or customers can arrange their own freight. Minimum orders are 200 lbs. Depending on case sizes, net weight on a pallet will range from 1500-2000 lbs.
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 at room temperature, refrigerated or frozen. If storing at room temperature, choose a cool dry location (products will last for up to six months.) We recommend you refrigerate our dried fruit to extend its shelf life. Store our products for up a year under refrigerated conditions (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.
