Starr Ranch Growers proud to be Fair Trade Certified

Starr Ranch Growers, known for its top-rated JUICI apples, is elevating the collective-good with a industry first designation on over 3,900 acres being Fair Trade Certified. “We’re the first apple grower-shipper to receive this hard-earned distinction,” said Krista Beckstead, brand manager at Starr Ranch, based out of Wenatchee, WA.

The Fair Trade Certified logo is a hard-earned accreditation, highlighting companies who go above and beyond to empower their employees. Retailers pay a premium on goods that are Fair Trade Certified to promote employee welfare, for Starr this means 80 percent of premiums are paid back directly to the farm workers, which indirectly supports local communities at large.

For Starr growing Fair Trade Certified apples is a commitment to dedicating additional support and compensation for its employees and personnel working directly in the orchards.
