John Amaral of The Nunes Company Talks Winter Promotions and Foxy Brand Produce
- by Jordan Okumura
SALINAS, CA - The month of December brings the hustle and bustle of year-end holidays for retailers and growers as sales opportunities arise and consumer demand spikes for the season’s most favorable produce items. During this time, the Nunes Company and Foxy brand are responding to the needs of buyers and shoppers alike as it ramps up with promotable volumes on its coveted program from the desert growing region of Yuma, Arizona.
“We are excited to work with customers as we move through Christmas and into the New Year,” John Amaral, Sales Manager, shares with me. “We offer over 35 different conventional and organic vegetable items for our retail and foodservice trade, which gives great coverage to all of their Western Vegetable needs. Loading off the same dock offers a one-stop-shop which translates to time and money saved on their logistical costs.”
The Nunes Company completely transitioned out of Salinas, California, and has entered full production on its line of Foxy Brand items in Yuma, which includes categories from iceberg and Romaine lettuces to broccoli and cauliflower.
“We are off to a good start with excellent quality and condition. We have strong volume presently and are looking forward to a great Christmas and New Year pull.” John says.
This December will present a quick buying period. Get your orders ready!
