Rainier Fruit is thrilled to begin its first of a multi-year partnership as the Official Apples of the Boston Marathon. The family-owned and operated farms that sell fruit under the Rainier label have been honing their craft for generations. Ensuring a healthy future for our earth is paramount. Our primary responsibility as good stewards is to grow the finest quality fruit, using the natural resources entrusted to us. We farm in a way that shows our respect for the land, pride in our product, and a commitment to our community and employees.
The sponsorship of the Boston Marathon is more than a singular event for Rainier Fruit; it’s about connecting with individuals seeking a healthy, active lifestyle. Mark Zirkle, President of Rainier Fruit, stated, “We couldn’t be more excited about this new opportunity to introduce the exceptional quality and sweet flavor of our apples while supporting the running community. This is part of our long-term commitment to providing healthy and nutritious fruit products to people around the world.”
