LOS ANGELES, CA - Giumarra Companies is continuing its track for growth, this time with a new office and team addition.
The company announced that it has welcomed Matthew Moore to its sales and operations for Giumarra Southeast.
“I’m excited to be a part of a company with such a rich family heritage and immensely-respected brand within the produce business,” Moore commented. “I’m looking forward to representing Giumarra in the southeast.”
The new addition brings previous experience with the Giumarra International Berry division, where he managed East Coast operations and transportation, according to a press release. Outside of the produce industry, Moore also brings experience in global sales, quality control, and operations.
“With the addition of U.S., Peruvian, and Mexican-grown sweet onions to our product line this year, we have seen exciting growth in the Giumarra Southeast division,” John Reese Franklin, Sales and Operations Manager of Giumarra Southeast, said. “Matthew brings a solid combination of grower relations and sales support experience that will benefit our business as we continue to expand.”
Giumarra Southeast also recently opened a new sales office in Valdosta, Georgia, to help accommodate the growth of selling Michigan-grown pumpkins.
“Our new locale in south Georgia is a key access point for serving our family of growers in the southeastern U.S., particularly Florida and Georgia,” Franklin said of the latest opening.
Michigan-grown pumpkins are another of the offerings the company added to its portfolio this year. As Giumarra Southeast gets settled into the autumn season, it stated that it will offer both the newly-added Michigan-grown pumpkins and Peruvian-grown sweet onions.
