“This is our 4th consecutive season importing from Spain, initial quality on our first few containers has been excellent and our customers have had a smooth transition from our Mexican program to the Spanish lemons,” said Raul Millan, Executive Vice President Vision Import Group, according to a press release. "We are currently packing in 15kg carton boxes, in the near future we will also be offering 18kg cartons. Our lemons are Cat 1 and are stickered (PLU). We expect to have consistent arrivals from Spain till the end of May.”

According to the company, experience has been a large factor in helping to secure and grow these types of European opportunities. Vision Import Group also noted that Spain continues to be one of the major suppliers of lemons to Europe, and being able to secure product for the United States has become a sense of pride for the company.

Donald Souther, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing"Spanish lemons have been a great addition over the last several years to our Mexican Lemon program and helps our customers keep a consistent flow of quality product as production shifts from growing areas," added Donald Souther, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Vision Import. 

This program, among others, helps reinforce the Vision Companies' mantra to be the “Direct Link to the Grower.” To learn more about the program, contact the New Jersey sales office at (201) 968-1190, or email them at [email protected].
