It was 1957, apple production was high, and the outlook for even greater future production was bright. Local fruit growers saw an exciting possibility: With the right storage facility, they could market their product well beyond the traditional fall sales period.
By combining their resources and partnering with experts at Michigan State University, these growers pioneered the first multiple-room Controlled Atmosphere (CA) storages in the state. And BelleHarvest Sales, Inc. was off and running.
Today, BelleHarvest is one of the largest fresh apple marketers in the eastern United States, handling sales and quality control of Michigan apples to customers across the nation and the world. And our commitment to deliver high-quality, consistently superior products hasn’t wavered since day one.
