- by Jordan Okumura
BAKERSFIELD, CA - Variety, versatility, value, and organic. When I think of Cal-Organic Farms, these words easily come to mind and I must imagine the same words rise in minds of buyers as well. Generating excitement with the Organic Produce Summit (OPS) on the horizon, Cal-Organic is gearing up to showcase its portfolio in full force, with a full line of vegetable offerings including brassicas, lettuces, leafy greens, herbs, and root vegetables. The company will also be highlighting its seasonal organic vegetable programs including its Cal-Organic red, gold, and fingerling potatoes.
“Grimmway and Cal-Organic are dedicated to protecting natural resources and preserving the environment,” Bob Borda, Vice President of Organic Sales, shares with me as we look to the near horizon. “Backed by more than 50 years of farming experience, we grow 100 percent of our organic crops in-house on company land which allows us to achieve the premium quality our customers have come to expect.”
Meeting the expectations of Cal-Organic’s partners is the team’s number one priority and the company is committed to providing them with the highest quality available in the market. As you can expect, Cal-Organic’s business continues to expand across the multitude of retail channels in the market today. From specialty, mainstream, and big-box retailers, customers are finding the need to address demand for organic fresh produce.
So, what is the Cal-Organic team truly looking forward to at this year’s OPS?
“I enjoy the Organic Produce Summit as the casual setting provides opportunities for quality time and productive conversations with top decision makers in the industry,” Bob responds.
And I imagine he speaks for more than not just himself and his team, but an industry in love with the opportunities at the annual OPS in Monterey, California. But don’t just take my word for it. Stop by booth #505 on the trade show floor and ask Bob and the team what Cal-Organic and the OPS show are all about.
