CASTROVILLE, CA - Ocean Mist Farms has formed a strategic alliance with Lakeside Organic Gardens to grow for one another and expand their respective organic product lines.
Marketed under its Ocean Mist Organic label, Ocean Mist’s organic product line will expand to include beets, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, cilantro, fennel, iceberg lettuce, kale, leeks, parsley, red leaf, green leaf, romaine, and spinach.
Lakeside Organic Gardens’ product line will now include organic artichokes.
The first products will ship in July from the Ocean Mist Farms cooler in Castroville, CA and the Lakeside Organic Gardens cooler in Watsonville, CA, according to a press release.
“The purpose of the strategic alliance between the two companies is to meet the increasing shopper demand for organic produce,” said Ocean Mist Farms CEO Ed Boutonnet. “It’s important to the future of our business that we respond to the changes in the marketplace and meet the needs of our end consumer; adding organic produce to our product list is part of meeting that need.”
Dick Peixoto, Lakeside Organic Gardens Grower Owner, similarly expressed his excitement for the expanded product line, noting, “We appreciate the commitment Ocean Mist has made to grow the best quality organic artichokes. This is a win for both companies because both of our customers will have immediate access to wider organic product lines.”
Both Ocean Mist Farms and Lakeside Organic Gardens are family-owned and operated.
