In 1977, Dredge sold the business to four Utah Farmers and a group of investors from Texas. From that time forward, the company was known as Utah Onions. The farming investor group was able to grow the company into more than a packaging and selling outfit. Utah Onions became known as a grower, shipper and packager of quality crops. The company also took on more packing and shipping responsibilities as time carried on, bringing in trade partners. Hartley’s Best and Oregon Trail Produce. in the late 1980s.
