4Earth Farms' Mark Munger Discusses Expanding Year-Round Organic Program Ahead of OPS
- by Jordan Okumura
LOS ANGELES, CA - It's hard to even think about organics and quality without thinking about some of the major growers making strides in our industry, and one of them is 4Earth Farms. With the third annual Organic Produce Summit (OPS) just days away, you won’t have to. As organic demand continues to grow, companies across the board are rising to meet the needs of retailers, foodservice operators, and consumers and, as always, you can count on the team at 4Earth Farms to respond to that need with its evolving year-round organic program.
Mark Munger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, joins me in the lead up to OPS, to dish on the changing organic landscape and how its network of worldwide strategic partnerships allows the company to offer more and more organic SKUs year-round.
“Organics are no longer a niche in the produce department—they have become a destination,” Mark tells me and he reflects on that pace of change. “It seems like overnight demand has begun to outpace supply and, as we listen to the needs of our retail and foodservice customers, we are continuing to invest in our organics program to bring more value to the marketplace and the consumer. 4Earth Farms is uniquely qualified to tackle the year-round supply challenge—that is our promise.”
With more than 40 year-round SKUs within its 120 organic SKU portfolio, it is easy to see how 4Earth Farms can deliver on that promise. From green beans and Brussels sprouts to mini sweet peppers and kiwifruit—just to name a handful—the company is covering all its bases in terms of its organic supply and reach. Add in innovative packaging concepts, rich graphics, and messaging that pops on the shelf—retailers won’t only find value in the produce itself, but in the complete presentation.
“The Organic Produce Summit has really been a great avenue and resource for building those relationships with our customers and future customers,” Mark says. “The quality of the attendance and the opportunities for elevating and furthering the organic conversation, make it an event we look forward to every year.”
