Oneonta Starr Ranch Growers has installed a new cherry packing line and is introducing new packaging.

The new Unitec Cherry_Vision 40-lane optical packing line will allow Wenatchee, Wash.-based Oneonta Starr to pack cherries more quickly and accurately and to reduce labor, according to a company news release.

In packaging, Oneonta Starr is introducing a “Kissed by the Sun” pouch bag for its rainier cherries. Oneonta Starr expects a significant increase in its rainier volumes this year.

The company also has brought back its popular CherrysnaQ pouch bags.

Oneonta Starr reports near-perfect growing conditions and expects to begin shipping Washington cherries in the first week of June. Volume shipments should begin my mid-June.
