Overview

Flavorful and nutritious Wawona premium fruits are a favorite in school meal programs. Working with school districts across the country, Wawona has created products designed to provide both variety and economy without sacrificing appeal and nutrition. Fruit commodities can be converted into several different products within a single order to help avoid “menu burnout.” For example, commodity peaches may be converted into fruit cups, cups with shortcake, cobblers and fruit pastries.

The Wawona Way

As the family’s fourth generation enters elementary school, the Smittcamps are fully aware of the importance of fruit in children’s daily diets. Not only is Wawona’s fresh frozen fruit tastier than canned fruit, the nutritious benefit is locked in during the individual quick freezing process. In addition, Wawona is dedicated to sustainable growing practices both in its estate orchards as well as with long-time growers. Wawona’s three production facilities are state-of-the-art incorporating the latest technologies and innovations with strong emphasis on both food and employee safety.
