What We Do
The Pacific Northwest Canned Pear Service represents the farmers in Oregon and Washington who grow Bartlett pears for canning and the west coast companies who pack them. Harvested by hand, the pears are ripened then peeled, cored, and poached in juice or sweetened syrup right in the can, preserving the fruit’s quality through classic canning techniques. Canned pears are versatile, ready to use, and available through USDA child nutrition programs or from your distributor. We also have lots of great recipes and free promotional materials available for schools.
