As a leader in West Coast pepper product, Baloian Farms has recently expanded its production possibilities with a new line of equipment designed to process mini peppers.
The new equipment, purchased in the spring of 2013, can serve multiple purposes — its main position will be for packing mini sweet peppers, but will also work for packing baby Bells and hot chilies as well.
“Making these necessary upgrades and capital investments in new machinery will help us to grow our leadership position in pepper production, and continually provide high-quality, competitively priced products to consumers year-round,” Jeremy Lane, sales manager of Baloian Farms, said in a press release.
Lane also said the new equipment will also greatly improve the speed and efficiencies of packing.
“All across our company we are attempting to increase efficiencies in everything from farming to packing,” he said. “And while these new machines came as a big initial investment, we are already experiencing increased return on investment at the packing level, and have ordered additional equipment to continue this momentum.”
The new equipment is intended to pack Baloian’s value-added mini sweet peppers and baby Bell peppers. Using the bridged production areas of Culiacan, Mexico, and California, Baloian Farms offers year-round supply of mini sweet peppers, baby Bell peppers, squash and other mixed vegetables.
Baloian Farms is a fourth-generation, vertically integrated family farm with year-round operations specializing in peppers and mixed vegetables grown in California and Mexico.
