Shuman Farms Meets Year-Round Demand With RealSweet® Premium Sweet Onions
REIDSVILLE, GA - What could be better than a product that offers a unique buy-side advantage? With Shuman Farms’ RealSweet® Premium sweet onions from Peru, these advantages are abundant. Not only does this variety drive sales in the category and the overall produce department, but it supports the U.S. economy. And, as buyers look to ramp up register rings, our premium sweet onions are ready to take the spotlight on their shelves.
Here’s What’s in Store.
As an expert and leader in the category, we began growing sweet onions in Peru more than two decades ago to meet year-round consumer demand. The ideal climate and growing conditions in the region allow retailers to maintain consistency in the category and keep consumer-trusted RealSweet onions on the shelf from September through March.
Our premium-quality Peruvian sweet onions are imported through the Port of Savannah, the fourth busiest and fastest-growing container port in the U.S. This allows us to maintain a full-time, local workforce in Tattnall County, Georgia, 12 months of the year. In addition to this positive impact in our own backyard, importing sweet onions through the Port of Savannah also helps to support over 497,000 jobs in the Southeast United States.
This unique sweet onion offers an exclusive advantage for retailers due to its similarity to the Vidalia® variety—which allows consumers to recognize it as a premium sweet onion—while providing a boost to the economy.
As the leading grower, shipper, and importer of sweet onions, we are able to meet the heightening demand with a consistent, premium quality product.
