Grimmway bought its citrus division from Belridge Farms in 1991, according to a news release. The division includes a building and equipment north of Bakersfield. Krause said Paramount is buying all of the equipment.
Grimmway president Jeff Meger said in a news release that all hourly workers in the company’s citrus division will be offered jobs in Grimmway’s other divisions.
“We have experienced dramatic increases in the carrot category, and it has become necessary for us to expand our carrot operations into this space,” Meger said in the release.
