MONTEREY, CA - There’s nothing I like quite as much as brussel sprouts, broccoli, and artichokes. You might be skeptical, but the three veggies are seriously my favorite. As the cooler weather prevails, there’s nothing like peeling apart a seasoned artichoke and dipping it in lemon butter. Yum! Ready to get more than just me excited for these green superstars is Ocean Mist Farms.
I recently had the chance to talk to Diana McClean, Senior Director of Marketing, about the company’s continuing visibility in the foodservice arena, and how its value-added product lines will get everyone excited for these veggies.
“So this year, what we're showing off is the extension of our value-added product line,” she shares with me. “We've got Brussels sprouts in three different cuts—whole, halves, and shreds.”
The company also debuted its broccoli florets at PMA Foodservice 2018, but she noted that Ocean Mist is best-known for its artichokes.
“[The artichoke] is a tremendous foodservice item and now, with the extension of our value-added product line into the foodservice arena, it's giving us that much more visibility and opportunity to satisfy the needs of our customers,” Diana says. “What we're really known for in the industry is our attention to detail as far as food safety, quality, and growing for flavors.”
