SOLEDAD, CA - All the news of product launches and innovations has the team at AndNowUKnow giddy with excitement as we head toward this year’s International Fresh Produce Association’s (IFPA) Global Produce & Floral Show. Among the companies adding to the anticipation is Braga Fresh, home of Josie’s Organics, debuting a line of conventional Chopped Salad Kits at the show.

Colby Periera, Chief Operating Officer, Braga Fresh“Moving into the conventional chopped salad space is the natural next step in growing our value-added business,” Colby Pereira, Chief Operating Officer, said. “As with our current Josie’s Organics salad program, this new Braga Farms product line will focus on flavorful salad options while offering our retail partners value and convenience in one loading location.”

The new conventional chopped salad kits come in six flavors: Sweet Kale, Caesar, Asian Sesame, Sunflower Crunch, Everything, and Avocado Goddess. According to a release, as the company grows its value-added offerings, this lineup was a natural extension of its current organic and private label chop program.
