2950 CLUI photo.

America’s largest grower, packer, shipper and processor of onions, with an annual production of just under 500 million pounds. Their domestic onions are harvested from the Columbia River basin between June and September, dried using heated air, and then kept in refrigerated storage at between 32 and 36 degrees F and 65 to 70 percent humidity for months. Onion farms in California and Chile allow River Point to provides a year-round supply of whole and processed onions to foodservice, restaurant, and retail customers, including Sysco, Del Monte, Safeway, Costco, Kroger, Subway, Pizza Hut and McDonald’s.
