Ecoripe Sees Strong Demand for Organic Ginger; Plans Future Organic Mango Program

Ecoripe Tropicals, a Medley, Florida-based produce distribution company, started an organic ginger program four years ago in response to customer demand.

“We began importing organic ginger from Peru during the 2019 harvest season due to our customers’ request,” says Marc Holbik, Ecoripe’s president. “We partner with a local grower and packer of the Pichinaqui district of the Department of Junin in Peru who have not only GLOBALG.A.P., GRASP, and NOP organic certifications but also a lot of love for working in our profession.”
