Welcome to Apple Valley Foods U.S.

Manufacturing Quality Food Should Be Fun,  Rewarding and Never Boring!

We are proud to be one of America's premier pie manufacturers.  As part of the Harlan Foods group of companies, each week, we feed 1 in 10 Americans.  This is a responsibility that we take very seriously and at the same time, are very excited to share with others.

Families rarely think about accessing affordable, safe and nutritious food.  That is, until it isn't accessible.  We understand the importance of ensuring that keeping store shelves stocked with what consumers want and need is a very important mission.

We pay close attention to what we manufacture and we realize our reputation is at stake with each product, which is why we are looking for people who are seeking more than just their next job.  We are looking for people who  are willing to invest in themselves in order to grow professionally and achieve greater financial rewards and freedom.
