Giumarra's Escondido operation was launched in 1982 to give the company an on-the-ground center for avocado packing, quality control and marketing. Giumarra Escondido's 22,000 square-foot packing facility is located in San Diego's North County. This is an ideal climate for producing the world's finest avocados.
ARRAcado brand avocados are now marketed with the family of Nature's Partner® growers and are packed and shipped from the Giumarra Escondido location. A modern packing and cooling facility was built in 1991. Computerized sizing technology is used by a staff of dedicated employees to deliver uniform quality in every box of Nature's Partner® avocados.
We partner with growers from California, Chile and Mexico to market avocados and citrus under the Nature's Partner® brand. From December through September, we ship avocados from California. From August through February, we market avocados on behalf of Chilean growers, while from October through April we supply customers with avocados from Mexico.
Our large-capacity ripening and cooling rooms enable Giumarra Escondido to handle very high volumes of avocados in the peak-shipping season.
To ensure quality from the tree to the retail shelf, Giumarra's Grove Management services provide technical and horticultural assistance at every level of the farming process. We know that quality begins on the tree, and therefore offer growers a complete horticultural advisory service to assist them in producing the finest avocados.
