Pace Newsroom

Pace History

Our story began in Kirkland, Washington. It was there, where Pace International took root to serve the needs of the agricultural community in 1953. Years later, Pace relocated its global headquarters to Wapato, Washington in the fertile Yakima Valley.

As business continued to grow, Pace decided to focus its efforts on the postharvest needs of the produce industry. In 2012, Pace was fully acquired by Valent Biosciences (VBC).

Today, Pace is a global leader in sustainable postharvest solutions in the pome, citrus, cherry, stone fruit and potato industries. Pace’s commitment to the postharvest industry includes R&D centers and laboratories as well as a new ecoFog® Technology Center located in Wapato, Washington. Pace has offices in the Americas and strategic partners globally.
