Fresh Del Monte Expands Organic Fresh-Cut Fruit Production In North America
CORAL GABLES, FL - Fresh Del Monte is continuing to flex its strength in the organic sphere as it announces an expansion to its organic fresh-cut fruit production in North America. This latest expansion will allow Fresh Del Monte to continue growing its fresh-cut fruit and organic fresh-cut fruit businesses nationally while diversifying its variety of produce SKUs.
“We are excited to now be expanding and processing organic fresh-cut fruit,” said Kirk Teske, Vice President, Product Management and Sales, Fresh-Cut N.A. “Our team is always working to find new and innovative solutions to meet the needs of our consumers, and we are excited to offer our customers greater freshness and efficiencies in the organic fresh-cut fruit category. We’re committed to providing our customers with new and existing products that fit their various lifestyles and look forward to getting the freshest produce in their hands.”
The fresh-cut distributor’s expansion will target the United States and Canada. According to the release, this latest development will allow for added retail convenience, as fruit will be cut to order prior to distribution.
Since fruits cannot be cut in-store, this process eliminates a hassle for retailers, thereby helping partners incrementally grow their sales. The produce is cut-to-order at each facility for direct, next-day deliveries and pickups.
For over 20 years, Fresh Del Monte has offered conventional fresh-cut fruit processing nationwide. The expansion to organic fresh-cut fruit production comes as a result of popular trends and rising demand for organic products. Fresh Del Monte strives to grow its business and elevate its existing operations to unprecedented new heights. Continuing to meet consumers’ desires and needs, the brand ensures its organic produce has consistent quality, freshness, and reliability in its raw product.
