Vineyard Care

Vineyard Care:

Quality and care of our vineyards are controlled through the owners of Welch Foods, the National Grape Cooperative.  The growers follow strict vineyard management practices through the Cooperative Sustainability Program to maximize yields and ensure a high-quality crop.



Grapes are harvested by use of mechanical harvesters and are pressed within eight hours.  The close proximity of our vineyards to our processing plants ensures grape quality is preserved from the vineyard to the plant.  Strict standards are in place to ensure a consistent and high-quality crop from year to year.

Processing Plant:  

The plant’s extensive production capabilities include grape harvesting, juice storage, concentrator operations, and shipment to many domestic and international locations.     


Grandview, Washington Plant is GFSI Certified (SQF – Level II).  Other certifications include Halal, Orthodox Union, Circle U, Triangle K, and Organic.


Food safety of all products produced at Welch’s facilities, for both internal and external customers, is our highest priority.  Our HACCP System was developed using the principles identified in the National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Foods (NACMCF) Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Principles and Application Guidelines (1997).   New and emerging legislative/regulatory and customer requirements are incorporated into the HACCP program as needed with guidance from the Welch’s Corporate HACCP Advisory Committee. The HACCP system is reviewed and validated annually by trained and competent personnel.
