Exclusive look at River Point Farms Operations and Plans for New Facility
HERMISTON, OR - River Point Farms executives Bob Hale, CEO, Delbert Gehrke, VP of Farming, Bill Dean, VP of Quality Assurance & Sustainability, and Craig Green, CFO/COO, join AndNowUKnow to offer an exclusive, inside look at the company’s operations and upcoming 75,000 sq. ft. packing facility.
The company is dedicated to ensuring the optimal onion crop while staying focused on sustainability. Currently, River Point tests approximately 200 onion varieties each year, and only 2 varieties are selected to carry forward in production for a 5-year period of time.
As part of its sustainability program, River Point uses a variable speed drive for its irrigation system to minimize energy use.
Looking forward, the company is just weeks away from breaking ground on its new packing facility. The building will be completed by March 2015, with all equipment installed by July 2015.
“We’re very excited by this opportunity and what it means for our customers and our employees,” Green tells us.
