CarbAmericas Launches Organic Asparagus Program
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., October 8, 2018 - CarbAmericas announces it will start shipping Cypress Creek Organic green asparagus from Caborca, Mexico in January 2019, though retailers can begin placing orders effective immediately. CarbAmericas is the premier importer of fresh fruits and vegetables celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018.
The season will start in January and run through April 15 and pick up again from October to March. CarbAmericas will offer long term and contract pricing for its organic asparagus program. This new organic program will complement the company's longstanding conventional asparagus offerings.
CarbAmericas will supply organic asparagus in 11/1lb and 28/1lb boxes, consisting of standard and large size asparagus.
"We will also pack our organic asparagus in a 12 oz bag that will be more convenient for the consumer, introduce "new customers" to the organic category through purchase triggers, and will provide a better price point," said Jeff Friedman, president of CarbAmericas.
The Caborca-grown product will load in Yuma Arizona.
