LIV Organic Produce Appoints Carrie Briones to Oversee Sales, Grower Relations for Citrus
LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA - LIV Organic Produce is making moves to build its sales team and grow its profile in the landscape of organic produce. The grower partnership, launched earlier this year, has added Carrie Briones to its team—in order to oversee sales and grower relations. Carrie brings nearly two decades of produce experience to her new role—building out the burgeoning company’s citrus program.
“Having our relationships with many families and multi-generational growers, over decades of service, has given us a tremendous start in achieving our goal—to continue to help them establish, maintain and leverage a stable spot in the supply chain,” Carrie said. “We are here to be long term partners, but we also understand we need to show results sooner than later. There’s an immediate need for these established family farms to have a presence and some level of security in the changing marketplace.”
Carrie began her career as a coordinator at Riverside Arlington Heights Fruit Exchange—a Sunkist-affiliated exchange—at the age of 20. She has, since then, accrued 17 years’ experience in the produce industry—including 15 years in sales and 12 years working with organic commodities.
LIV Organic Produce’s inaugural citrus season is currently heating up, Carrie tells me, and customers can look forward to a strong season—with year-round supply of a citrus staple and good supply coming in a variety of key citrus categories.
“We currently have year round lemon supply and a good season coming on for California-grown minneolas, navels, and grapefruit—with packaging to fit retailer’s needs.
We at AndNowUKnow congratulate Carrie on her new role and the entire LIV Organic Team on an auspicious start to the season and to the company. Stick with us for more fresh produce news.
