- by Peggy Packer
IMMOKALEE, FL - The foodservice sector continues to boom with business as consumers begin to return to their pre-pandemic routines, and with this long-awaited return to restaurants and eateries comes a steady increase in demand. Lipman Family Farms is well-positioned to help its allies in the sector meet this demand, and it will be showcasing exactly how at the upcoming Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Foodservice Conference and Expo.
“With consumers eager to get back out and experience restaurants and dining again, we are seeing equally eager menu developers ready to innovate again,” said Wil Wilbur, Corporate Chef at Lipman Family Farms. “We are energized by the desire to incorporate new, fresh ingredients into menus and are continuously developing our food-safe, ready-to-eat, fresh-cut product line, blends, and mixes.”
Lipman’s fresh-cut line is harvested, packed, clipped, and cleaned through Lipman’s supply chain network to provide a high-quality, ready-to-serve product that eliminates prep time and reduces back-of-house labor, according to a press release.
One of the products the fresh produce purveyor will be showcasing is its ready-to-eat green beans, which are offered in a variety of sizes ranging from 12-ounces to 32-ounces and bulk sizing, packaged in a high-graphic microwavable bag, and ready to ship to customers within 24 hours.
Lipman has guaranteed product availability for its green beans, as they are grown on exclusive acreage in Guasave and Baja California, Mexico, and distributed by its advanced West Coast distribution network. The supplier also has delicious organic green beans available under the Grown-True line of products, which also includes cucumber, pepper, tomato, and squash varieties.
Take a stroll by Lipman’s booth, #219, at PMA Foodservice to explore its unique fresh-cut capabilities; try some mouthwatering samples provided by Chef Wil; and share insights on Lipman Culinary, a free new resource that helps customers reduce gaps in the farm to table connection and improve the consumer experience.
