Scully Packing Company was founded in 1984 to handle the pear production of a select group of family farmers from all the major pear producing regions in California. Today, the business has grown to handle fruit from approximately 20 of the finest pear growers in California. Scully Packing’s own growing operation accounts for approximately 50% of its annual production. Scully Packing Company’s volume represents approximately 35% of California’s fresh pear pack.
The business plan at Scully Packing Company is very simple: Provide quality product coupled with excellent service and you will build long-term relationships with both growers and customers alike.
We’ve Got California Covered
Scully Packing Company offers pears from all California growing regions. Our Sacramento Delta orchards provide customers with quality fresh pears at the beginning of the season. Our Mountain Pear districts of Mendocino and Lake counties produce pears with exceptional quality and flavor. Our policy of using separate labels to identify the district of origin of each Bartlett Pear pack avoids confusion as to the origin of the fruit.
Food Safety is Top Priority
We are committed to providing a safe and wholesome product. Our Packinghouses adhere to the Primus Labs GFS Packinghouse audit with HACCP certification. All of our growers are required to pass annual Primus Ranch and Harvest Audits (or other approved GFS scheme).
Sustainability is a Way of Life
Our Integrated Pest Management program includes insect trapping and pheromone disruption programs that minimize chemical usage in our orchards. Our Growers must adhere to more stringent chemical use restrictions than are permitted by both the state and federal regulations. Our goal is to minimize detectable chemical residues on our fruit. We utilize electronic water sensors to help better utilize irrigation water. Scully Packing installed approximately one megawatt of solar generation to help provide green energy for our packinghouses and cold storage facilities.
