We pride ourselves on our ability to meet your needs for a broad selection of varieties and grades, and feel that knowing our product from the ground up is the best way to accomplish this. Separate inspection teams work on all levels of our growing, packing and shipping operations, ensuring the consistent quality and food safety standard for which Starr Ranch Growers is known.

HORTICULTURAL EXPERTISE

Qualified horticultural staff provide constant guidance to growers on their field practices, and maintain an ongoing commitment to implementing new, improved varieties.

QUALITY INSPECTORS

A team of field inspectors functions seamlessly in coordination with our sales team to ensure consistent quality standards for all of our company-owned and contract packing facilities. Separate inspection teams work on all levels of our growing, packing and shipping operations, including a final set of inspectors who are fully empowered to stop and divert shipments leaving our warehouses.

TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION

New frontiers in marketing fresh fruit are opening up as leading edge technologies are becoming available that perform non-destructive testing of fruits to determine taste and storability. Consistency in taste and better shelf-life increase retailers profitability. We understand the importance of your bottom line, and will aggressively implement these technologies as soon as they become commercially viable.
