- by Maggie Mead
WATSONVILLE, CA - A & A Organic Farms has commenced shipping of organic lemons this week, much to the joy of citrus lovers everywhere. As part of a new partnership with organic farmers in Hermosillo, Mexico, A & A Organic Farms is now offering both Fancy and Choice Lemons in multiple pack sizes. The packaging also reflects the needs of the company’s retail partners.
“Our lemon bags have a UPC header and are bilingual with both French and English; to better serve our Canadian customers,” said President Andy Martin, in a press release.
The lemons are packed in 40 lb bulk boxes, with traditional 18 x 2 lb bagged lemons and new 9 x 2 lb bags available as well. The company’s Fancy and Choice Lemons are available in: 75 ct, 95 ct, 115 ct, 140 ct, 165 ct, and 200 ct. The lower count offers smaller retailers an option to reduce shrink. The grower’s Fancy Lemons also have a GTIN bar coded PLU sticker on each fruit, though Choice lemons do not have PLU stickers. A & A Organic Farms offers a strip of PLU stickers in some of the Choice boxes for customers seeking a lower price point. These lemons are available to load in Irwindale, California.
The grower will also be offering its customers more citrus options from Mexico, including organic early sweet oranges, organic Valencia oranges, Murcott tangerines, and organic lemons. Those citrus items will be sold in bags and in bulk, with additional bulk options for juicing. The company’s oranges will be available from Mid-December to May.
Through this citrus program, A & A Organic Farms is able to offer its customers a consistent supply of exceptional citrus.
