Selling and Buying

The four major stops in the journey of an apple include the grower, packer, broker, and shipper.

Packed apples are placed on trucks and shipped directly to supermarket chains, or to wholesale markets where small stores or restaurants may purchase them.

Other apples may be diverted from the packing process and loaded onto trucks in the orchard or the packing warehouse and shipped to processors to become apple juice or apple chips.


Most apples are eaten raw, but apples are also used to make applesauce, apple cider, apple juice, apple cider vinegar, jellies, apple pie, dried apples (apple chips), and apple concentrate which is used as a flavor in many foods.
