Lodi, Calif.-based Rivermaid Trading Co. recently hired Justin Bloss to its sales and marketing staff, said Kyle Persky, sales manager. Bloss, who had been general manager at West Sacramento, Calif.-based Vierra Farms for five years, joined Rivermaid in mid-February.

Rivermaid also hopes to get its first use out of a third optical sorting machine that the company had added before the 2018 crop came in, Persky said.
