Giorgio Fresh's Doug Stewart Discusses New Products at SEPC Southern Exposure 2019
- by Anne Allen
ORLANDO, FL - Innovation abounds at produce shows; it’s almost as though we as an industry don’t know how to stop being so darn creative! I spoke with Giorgio Fresh’s Vice President of Sales, Northeast Region, Doug Stewart, to learn more about the innovative mushroom products the company is serving up.
“We have a Portabella Jerky, called Savory Wild™ and, as we heard at the luncheon this morning, people are looking for a plant-based item. This is a delicious mushroom jerky, and we have three different flavors, which we’re getting very nice experience with at many different retailers,” Doug said.
Available in Roasted Garlic & Black Pepper, Sesame, Ginger & Korean Chili, and Sweet Balsamic & Golden Fig, this mushroom jerky brings snacking to a whole new level. You may have seen me munching on some out on the show floor!
Giorgio was also showcasing its stuffed line of mushrooms, which come in a microwaveable and ovenable tray. You only have to wrap, heat, and enjoy! The line is available in three flavors: Artichoke, Spinach & Cheese; Fiesta Cheese; and Cheese & Imitation Bacon Bit.
To end, Doug told me that Giorgio also debuted a new label on its organic and conventional mushrooms. So much innovation, so little time!
