WATSONVILLE, CA - Sambrailo Packaging has welcomed two Pajaro Valley natives to the team, to add to the company’s passion for agriculture.

Marlen Fuentes and Matt Manfre, both veterans of their fields, joined the team in May, adding to the reach and depth of the company culture.

“The activities, sounds, and smells at our warehouses are all very familiar to me from my childhood and make me feel at home,” commented Fuentes, who has joined on as the new Master Planner for Sambrailo Packaging.

She brings 10 years of packaging experience, according to a press release, four of which she worked as an operations coordinator. With a father who worked as a raspberry grower for Driscoll’s, she has ag in her blood and seems to bring that passion to her role at Sambrailo.

Matt Manfre, who has both sales experience and family ties to the ag industry, has been welcomed as the new Account Manager in the company’s sales department.

“It is my goal to ensure that we efficiently manage packaging production, inventory, and issuance for my customers, so that they can focus on growing quality produce,” stated Manfre. “Coming from an ag family, I know how important it is to work with a responsive and caring partner.”

In his new role with Sambrailo, Manfre works with row crop growers to ensure that they have the cartons and all other value-added items necessary in one place.

Fuentes reviews forecasts, monitors inventories, and plans the releases of product to various Sambrailo warehouses in the U.S.

Currently, as the growing season for berries in Mexico gets underway, she is also planning and monitoring production and managing inventories for the company’s customers in Mexico.
