- by Jordan Okumura
LOS ANGELES, CA - Vision Produce is adding another item to its extensive list of "grower direct" deals with an exclusive Mid-April shade house Cucumber program out of Caborca, Mexico. In a collaboration with the Agricola Los Chacuales partner of growers, the program will be available starting the second week of April through June and be marketed under the La Visiõn label.
John Caldwell, V.P of Sales Arizona said, "We are excited to develop another partnership in Caborca with Agricola La Chacuales and continue our growth in the region. They are a socially responsible company that offers a safe work environment, competitive wages, supports non-profit endeavors and a family orientated culture. In addition, their operation is state of the art and maintains Primus Certification."
This is the second item that Vision is developing in the Corborca growing region by partnering with Agricola Los Chacuales, according to a press release.
"Vision Produce values results but also value the strong future potential in its partners. There is an investment in people that the company is devoted to and that we don’t come by every day. This is a stronger partnership due to their vision. We see this and reciprocate," Ricardo Araiza, one of the Los Chacuales’ team members.
This relationship has led Vision Produce and its growers to explore new markets together. In 2015, this new cucumber venture seeks to enhance Vision Produce’s ability to add greater value to its U.S. customers and attain future expansion in Mexico and the United States.
