LOS ALAMITOS, CA - Frieda’s Specialty Produce has a plan to keep summer sales fresh and fizzy. The company is happy to report California-grown champagne grapes are in good supply and ready to hit retailers in their Frieda’s-branded 16/1 lb. clamshells.
“With summer entertaining in full swing, champagne grapes create excitement in grape merchandising as their small, snack-able size is perfect for charcuterie and cheese platters,” said Alex Jackson Berkley. “Merchandise two facings in the grape case or cross-merchandise with cheeses, wine, and champagne.”
Berkley reported that with Califronia’s weather being warmer than the company had anticipated, the grapes reached shipping volumes this week.
In addition to its champagne grapes, Frieda’s offers seasonal California-grown specialty grape varieties, such as Yellow Sweetie (16/1 lb.) and Thomcord (10/1 lb.). These offerings join Frieda’s many other summer top-selling tropical fruits, according to a press release, including lychee, rambutan, cherimoya, and dragon fruit.
Cheese, wine, and champagne grapes? Sounds like a great summer spread to me!
