BlueDrop Mexico Forms Partnership with Consalo Family Farms
- by Maggie Mead
JALISCO, MEXICO - We’ve all heard the age-old adage that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In this case, the whole is a world in which the agriculture industry is optimized, and the parts include a wide array of companies working toward this goal. BlueDrop Mexico and Consalo Family Farms are two of such companies and have recently partnered up to pool their efforts. The partnership will consist of marketing and distributing BlueDrop blueberries and other fresh products in the United States and Canada with a seamless end-to-end integration.
"This new partnership provides us with clarity throughout the distribution chain and provides retail customers as well as consumers the freshest blueberries available," Hector Bonilla, Chairman of the Board of BlueDrop Companies, announced at the Grower and Investor meeting.
According to a press release, BlueDrop is one of the largest producers of blueberries, organic bananas, and other agricultural products in Mexico, with production encompassing over 52,000 acres. BlueDrop is also known for its proprietary varieties, technology, and sustainable environmental practices.
"This partnership will have unprecedented benefits for BlueDrop and its entire network throughout Mexico. The Consalo Family has a long history of integrity, successful growing, marketing, and distribution of fresh blueberries as well as other quality fruit and vegetables to retailers in the eastern U.S. and Canada," said Franz Meiners, Managing Director at BlueDrop.
New Jersey-based grower Consalo is currently spearheaded by third and fourth generation family members.
"We are very excited about partnering with a company of BlueDrop's magnitude. The growth that we envision in not only the blueberry category but across multiple other produce categories is something that we feel will greatly benefit our customers but ultimately the consumer," said Skip Consalo, President of Consalo Family Farms.
