Manzana Products Relocates-Plans Sunnyside, Washington, Processing Operations

Manzana Products Co., Inc., a producer of organic apple juices, sauces, and apple cider vinegars, plans to relocate and establish apple processing operations in Sunnyside, Washington. The project is expected to create 150 jobs over the next five years.

The company will lease and develop a 275,895-square-foot facility, adding new equipment including an additional pouch line for apple sauce. Production is scheduled for the end of 2025.

“We would like to thank everybody who has helped us get to this point and we are excited to start construction on our new Sunnyside facility, especially Sunnyside, Yakima County and Washington state officials. We plan to move all our operations to Yakima County by December 2025,” said Andy Kay, Manzana CEO. “Washington is the “Capital” of West Coast apple production, and we look forward to being in the heart of the bountiful Washington apple orchards.”

Manzana specializes in producing high quality organic products made with Fresh USDA Organic Apples, not from concentrate. The company currently operates a processing facility in Sebastopol, California.

“In Washington, we know that incredible produce comes from the Yakima Valley. We’re thrilled that more people across the world are noticing. This investment by Manzana Product Co. will create new jobs and strengthen our communities – and get Washington apples into even more hands. Commerce is proud to be part of this effort that will expand Washington’s economy,”noted Washington State Department of Commerce Director Mike Fong.

“Yakima County Development Association worked closely with Manzana representatives throughout the site selection process,” added Jonathan Smith, Executive Director. “We are grateful the company chose to locate their new facility in Sunnyside.”
