4Earth Farms' Mark Munger Talks Brussels Sprouts Program
- by Anne Allen
LOS ANGELES, CA - Just in time for the holidays, 4Earth Farms has expanded its Brussels sprouts retail programs. Building on its reputation as an industry leader in Brussels sprouts, 4Earth Farms is offering conventional Brussels Sprouts, Organic Brussels Sprouts, Brussels Sprouts Stalks, and a colorful addition—Purple Brussels Sprouts.
I had the chance to talk to Mark Munger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, to learn more.
“We really enjoy the holiday season when we expand our Brussels sprout offerings. Our stalks are always a seasonal favorite. Cut right off the plant and cleaned of their leaves with the sprouts shown in their natural state, Brussels Sprouts Stalks add a great visual to a holiday store set,” Mark tells me. “Customers can pick off the Brussels sprouts or they can throw the whole stalk in the oven with olive oil and seasoning for a unique table presentation.”
The 4Earth Purple Brussels Sprouts are an heirloom variety that are especially admired by lovers of Brussels Sprouts and even those less appreciative of their green cousins. The purple Brussels sprouts have a sweet, nutty flavor and mild aroma. They even keep their rich purple color after cooking!
4Earth Farms will start harvesting these purple beauties out of California’s Central Coast and Washington State, from late October through December.
“While we have planned and planted for plentiful holiday supplies, the harvest is not limitless. We are encouraging those retailers interested in making Purple Brussels part of the holiday mix to order early,” said Dave Hewitt, 4Earth Farms Director of Sales. “We are also going to be offering a consistent but limited supply after the holidays.”
4Earth Farms is supplying conventional purple Brussels sprouts in 4Earth Farms’ branded 1 lb handle bags and 1 lb vexar net bags.
Besides purple, 4Earth’s full line of Brussels sprouts are packed with a variety of value-added, private label, and bulk configurations.
