Oppy to Spotlight Several Beloved Brands at CPMA Convention and Trade Show; Colbert Rahal Shares
VANCOUVER, CANADA - With an impressive portfolio of well-known produce brands and an outstanding presence in Canada, you can bet Oppy is one provider we will certainly see at this year’s annual Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) Convention and Trade Show. Attendees who stop by the fresh powerhouse’s booth will be granted a closer look at the high-quality offerings driving demand at retail.
“Amidst the heavy rains in California, we’re spreading awareness of our controlled environment agriculture offerings with baby leafy greens from UP Vertical Farms and hydroponic strawberries from Happy Berry™,” Canadian Sales Director Colbert Rahal says. “We’re also featuring traditional products from new countries of origin like Spanish garlic and Peruvian ginger—just a few ways you can expect the world from us.”
Wondering what else awaits you at booth #1220 this year? Well, Oppy is also taking the opportunity to spotlight more of its featured brands such as Envy™, JAZZ, Divemex, Ocean Spray, and Zespri™.
The fresh produce provider is also taking to CPMA to celebrate a special anniversary, marking 20 years of its Expect the world from us brand promise. This celebration includes a special feature at the banquet, where the menu will showcase deliciously sweet bell peppers from two of Oppy’s closest grower partners: Divemex and Perpetual Vegetable Co.
While on the topic of partnerships, Colbert explains how CPMA provides an advantageous event for industry connection.
“I’m grateful that produce remains a handshake industry. We’re in the people business, and to have everyone in the same space to connect, share, and learn is the greatest benefit of CPMA,” Colbert adds. “Though this industry is very competitive, it’s also very collaborative, and I think that’s what makes it so special. It’s because we’re all working toward an important cause—to ensure people around the world have access to safe, nutritious fruits and vegetables while increasing consumption.”
Further upping the appeal, the CPMA show also grants Oppy an opportunity to center its focus on its home turf.
“Since Canada is Oppy’s home soil, we’re incredibly passionate about discovering relevant offerings for our country: Canadian-centric products for Canadian consumers. Whether it’s as close as baby leafy greens from a vertical plant factory in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia; tomatoes from a greenhouse in Redcliff, Alberta; or as far as garlic from Spain or Peruvian grapes, we’re always looking for ways to serve our Canadian customers better,” Colbert explains. “We look forward to conversations about how we can do so even better while in booth #1220.”
