SAN DIEGO, CA - As attendees flock to Orlando, Florida, for this year’s PMA Fresh Summit Convention and Expo, which takes place October 18-20 at the Orange County Convention Center, they are walking into a forcefield of jaw-dropping products and innovations to behold. One of the booths not to be missed is Organics Unlimited, which will sit at booth number 4131, and, there, participants can tap President and CEO Mayra Velazquez de León for the inside scopp on the company’s developments and the industry’s emerging trends.
Organics Unlimited is proudly showcasing its certified organic produce, its eco-friendly growing practices and sustainability, and its GROW by Organics Unlimited social responsibility program that comes as a result of banana purchases.
“We are thrilled to be exhibiting again at PMA Fresh Summit to share our vision of sustainability, responsibility, and eco-friendly growing practices as well as exciting new developments within our company,” said Velazquez de León. “Our booth visitors will enjoy fun giveaway items like toy monkeys, banana-shaped note pads, recipe cards, and bookmarks, among other things.”
The company’s land expansion program started in 2015 with 1,087 acres of farmland in Colima, Mexico. The company is heading into its final stages of land expansion with 1,865 acres by the end of this year, as it continues to increase production to meet growing demands.
Organics Unlimited’s harvesting method and sustainable farming practices allow the company to tend to the latest trends in the produce industry, all while using eco-friendly packaging.
The company’s certified organic bananas, organic plantains, and organic coconuts are grown in Colima and Michoacán, Mexico, as well as Ecuador. It uses sustainable practices throughout its growing, harvesting, packing, and shipping operations, as it protects the health of its workers and the environment, according to a press release. In addition to its own growing practices, the company supports small growers on farms that are nearby with organic farming techniques that provide healthy, safe, and consistent tropical produce for the marketplace.
