SUMMERLAND, BC - As PMA Foodservice sits just days away, companies across the fresh produce industry are making exciting announcements to up the anticipation for the event. Boosting eagerness for the show, Okanagan Specialty Fruits® (OSF) revealed that it will be rolling out new products across its innovative Arctic® apple variety as part of its showcase.
“Besides the many benefits of Arctic apples, what really sets us apart is how our apples are grown,” said Neal Carter, President and Founder. “Arctic apples are grown specifically for slicing. This offers customers a premium product with a superior, fresh from the orchard taste you won’t experience anywhere else.”
The new products include 40 oz sliced foodservice packs that will be available in both Arctic® Golden and Arctic® Granny varieties, as well as new diced and half slice options, according to a press release.
Those in attendance at the PMA Foodservice exhibition, being held July 21–22 in Monterey, California, are encouraged to stop by booth #719 to learn about the benefits of Arctic apples and sample the products for themselves. A 2 oz package option will also be on hand, a great option for school lunch programs.
“With a better flavor and an impressive 28-day shelf life, Arctic apples provide the foodservice industry with the ability to save time, money, and reduce unnecessary food waste,” explained Bob Wilkinson, Director of Sales. “Each time we introduce a new product line, we are able to expand these benefits to more foodservice operators, while increasing menu, ingredient, and processing possibilities.”
