We offer excellent prices
Traina understands what it’s like to own and operate a restaurant. We’ve owned an operated one for more than 35 years! We understand about staying competitive and being vigilant about food costs.

Your single source for every dried fruit need
What began in the Traina family orchards of San Jose California circa 1926 has grown to become a resource for hundreds of dried, sun-dried, imported and sweetened dried fruit products. As consumer interest in a wide variety of sun-dried products has grown, we expanded our product line, developing strong relationships with quality producers of sweetened and imported fruit worldwide. Today, Traina Foods is known as a single source for every conceivable dried fruit product.
Our products are slowly sun-dried for maximum flavor
The Traina sun-drying process begins with the plumpest, vine-ripened tomatoes we grow and the sweetest, juiciest fruits from the orchards. Combining state-of-the-art food technology and the Traina teams years of experience results in products with superior taste and perfect appeal. The process takes between 5 – 7 warm sunny days before the fruits are truly, perfectly sun-dried - sweet, moist, slowly sun-cooked fruit and tomatoes.
