Food Factory shows how Teamsters make SunRype fruit leather

Several Teamster members working at SunRype in Kelowna are featured in the first 6.5 minutes of an episode of Food Factory showing how the company makes fruit leather. The fast-paced, quirky show begins with trucks delivering crates of  Okanagan-grown apples and then shows how the apples are washed, the puree is made, the product is manufactured and finally how it’s packaged.
