QUALITY STARTS WITH OUR PROCESS
1. Orchard Care
Producing premium cherries begins in the orchard. At Jealous Fruits, we pride ourselves on exceptional orchard care. From pruning to picking, we carefully manage every step in growing delicious cherries over 1300 planted acres.
Before we pick, we use deep-rooted family and industry experience, and detailed quality analyses to make sure we pick the right varieties at the right time to ensure the best quality for our customers.
Every single cherry we process gets picked by hand into totes and shipped to our packing facility
3. Quality Control
Our cherries are rigorously checked for quality and food safety, from the tree to the final pack.
Our team monitors fruit maturity, size, colour, sugar content, firmness, defects, and stem condition at all stages of the picking and packing process.
We produce premium cherries—and we’ve got the data to prove it!
We pack our cherries using our state-of-the-art facility in Kelowna, BC.
The cherries are washed, hydrocooled, and then sorted using advanced optical sorting technology to remove damaged and defected fruit.
Finally, the cherries are given a final visual check by our experienced team.
Our team gently palletizes the boxes and fulfills orders for our customers across Canada and around the world. Before we ship, our product is kept chilled (0 degrees) in specially designed wind tunnels. We use world-class traceability and inventory tools to ensure that our cherries can be traced back to the orchard block they came from, no matter where in the world they go.
Our cherries are loved by customers around the world—and our in-house logistics team works to deliver Jealous Fruits cherries to them by land, sea, and air.
