Moses Lake, WASHINGTON (January 10, 2022) –  Okanagan Specialty Fruits® (OSF), builders of progressive and scrumptious Arctic® apples, is happy to announce that its mum or dad firm Third Security LLC has acquired 42.5 acres of land for improvement in Moses Lake, WA. One of many parcels of land will embrace the development of OSF’s centralized facility for receiving, storage, processing, packing, and delivery Arctic apple merchandise. The mission’s groundbreaking happened in September and is anticipated to be accomplished and operational in mid-2023.

“Now we have over 1,250 acres of Arctic apple timber at present planted in Washington State, and harvest yields are ramping up rapidly as our orchards come into full bearing,” explains Neal Carter, President of OSF. “With our continued development, it is smart to have a facility nearer to our orchards, so we will optimize efficiencies, high quality, and reduce transportation. We are able to concentrate on ramping up our manufacturing capabilities and delivering superior high quality product to our clients.”

The event will create roughly 60 native jobs for the group as soon as the ability is up and working, with plans for hiring alternatives to be introduced later.

“It is a large-scale mission that can require using many native distributors and repair suppliers to deliver it to fruition,” says Don Westcott, OSF’s Senior VP. “As growers, we acknowledge the significance of robust roots. We sit up for establishing ours locally of Moses Lake.”
