Oppy Adds Organic Arra 15 Grapes To Its Expansive Portfolio
- by Jordan Okumura
CANADA - Oppy is well-known as a marketer of Peruvian table grapes, but is expanding its legacy with a recent announcement. The company reported that it has added another international variety to its wide-ranging repertoire, becoming an importer of the organic green seedless Arra 15 variety.
“Oppy has always prioritized innovation throughout its 162-year history, and we are proud to consistently bring retailers what their customers are demanding,” Director of Import Grapes and Stonefruit Bill Poulos said. “Our import grape season is already off to a fantastic start and with the addition of this new premium variety we are adding yet another first to our comprehensive and innovative grape program.”
The new, premium organic grape originates from the lush Buena Vista Valley in Casma, Peru, which lies in the midpoint between other notable grape growing regions of Piura to the north and Ica to the south. The grower, marketer, and distributor will offer medium and large organic Arra 15 grapes, which will deliver an exceptional flavor and crunch—deftly balancing between acidity and sweetness.
According to a press release, Oppy is working with Peru’s Fundo Los Paltos to introduce the organic Arra 15, expanding its well-established import grape program for the first time this season such as SunWorld Innovations’ Midnight Beauty®, Scarlotta Seedless®, Sable Seedless®, Autumncrisp®, and many others. This reflects Oppy’s flexibility in diversifying its product mix based on the shifting needs and demands of the market.
Oppy’s international scope and expansive supply chain enable it to grow and market grapes from Peru, Chile, Brazil, and South Africa, so it can serve customers in North America and beyond with a wide range of tasty varieties year-round, fulfilling its “expect the world from us” promise.
