It all started on the family farm when August and Johanna Wax planted their first fruit trees in 1920 on Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, Washington. The Wax family began to develop products that were only sweetened by fruit and coined the term "Fruit-sweetened" to differentiate their products from those that used sugar, corn syrups and other sweeteners. Today the family business is owned by Odette and David D'Aniello and Odette's sister Mary Ann Quitugua, keeping the tradition of staying a Northwest family owned business alive. Our roots are in bakery and we own Celebrity Cake Studio, a premier cake bakery in Tacoma, Washington. Our passion is living a life of balance and purpose which is why we purchased Wax Orchards. We believe that life's moments should be celebrated by all and Wax Orchards offers a sweet solution for those on a limited diet by choice or for health reasons.
