Desert Valley Date is a premiere packer and shipper of California dates located in the Coachella Valley. The dates are grown locally, harvested and brought to our state-of-the-art packing house for processing. We distribute a number of different varieties, predominantly, Medjool and Deglet Noor.

The Deglet Noor, originated in Algeria, is considered to be a semi-dry date; it is less sweet and firmer in texture. We also offer an array of date-based products, such as diced dates and date paste, which can be used to create a host of culinary delights. Desert Valley Date offers both consumer industrial packaging for the ingredient market, private label and co-packing to accommodate diverse customer needs and ships worldwide.
