YAKIMA — Tree Top has purchased Sabroso, a Medford, Ore., company that makes fruit purées used in other food products.

Tree Top spokeswoman Sharon Miracle told the Yakima Herald-Republic that Sabroso will operate as a subsidiary of the Selah-based grower-owned cooperative. Sabroso will be an outlet for Tree Top growers and round out its offerings.

Sabroso has $90 million in worldwide sales annually with a work force of 180 at Medford, Woodburn, Ore., and Oxnard, Calif.

Sabroso processes apples, pears, peaches and other fruits into products used in baby food, baked goods, beverages and ice cream.
