BAKERSFIELD, CA - High quality is of the utmost importance when it comes to fresh produce. Grimmway Farms is making it easier than ever for regional grocers to leverage its premium supply by providing customers with a regional solution through its Lake Park, GA, processing facility, shipping carrots and organic vegetables across the Southeast region and Eastern Seaboard through spring.
“Cal-Organic is trialing a host of commodities in limited volumes from our Southeast growing region. For the first time, we’re offering an array of premium quality organic leafy greens, herbs, root vegetables, and carrots, and we plan to expand this regional planting next fall,” said Bob Borda, Vice President of Organic Sales.
In addition to Cal-Organic vegetables, Grimmway is offering conventional and organic baby carrots as well as conventional and organic fresh, cello, and jumbo carrots in a full range of pack sizes to suit customer needs. According to a press release, the company is also offering conventional and organic industrial peeled chunk carrots. Grimmway expects its supply of organic vegetables and carrots to run through April with conventional carrot products loading through May.
“We are pleased to provide our partners with faster shipping times and fresh, local produce during this season of regional availability,” added Eric Proffitt, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
