A favorite of students and foodservice operators, canned pears are a staple on many school menus, purchased to meet USDA fruit serving requirements and ripe and ready to use year-round.
Why "Buy American"
Quality & Safety - Our pears proudly bear the "Product of the USA" label, which means Pacific Northwest Canned Pears meet school foodservice purchasing mandates. U.S. Department of Agriculture grade standards ensure quality, product integrity and safety. Look closely for the country of origin.
Support American Farmers - All canned pears you receive through the USDA Direct Delivery Commodity Program ("Brown Box") are U.S.-grown. USDA supports American farmers who compete with lower priced products coming from China and other countries without the same inspection programs and labor costs. "Buy American" supports American Agriculture and family farms.
