Church Brothers Farms to Launch New Products and New Packaging at 2016 PMA Fresh Summit
- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
SALINAS, CA - The clock is running down on the PMA Fresh Summit kick-off, and Church Brothers Farms is showcasing two all-new products and packaging for the big event.
Enter the company’s newly-developed value-add diced broccoli stems, and cleaned and cored Redy-Pep™ Peppers.
“Broccoli is highly nutritious and adds great color and flavor to food,” said Kori Tuggle, Vice President of Marketing. “Our partners are excited about the convenience these items bring to their operations; both save labor and food waste.”
Tuggle added that the diced broccoli stem brand meets the company’s goal of both reducing food waste and increasing grower yields, according to a press release.
The Redy-Pep™ Peppers bring uniformity and convenience, already topped and seeded. Church Brothers noted that the new-to-market format:
- Reduces food waste
- Has a longer shelf life than traditional peppers, reducing labor and freight costs
- May be stored from 34 degrees to 38 degrees
While there, you will also have an opportunity to see Church Brothers Farms’ organic tender-leaf product line, the latest blends of Kale Color Crunch and Baby Kale Medley, and its full line of commodities and value-added packs for foodservice and retail.
Stop by and see it all firsthand October 14-16.
