Campos Borquez Achieves ROC Status, Naturipe CA Strawberries, Mango Update, Peri & Sons Sustainability, Market News, and More...
Mexican organic and conventional mango supplies typically follow a consistent pattern with more than a half dozen regions having solid commercial production throughout the year. Supplies start out in the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca and then move northward before finally ending in the Los Mochis area of Northern Sinaloa in late September.
It’s National Strawberry Month here in the US, and Naturipe Farms is currently enjoying peak production of its organic California strawberries. Jerry Moran, Naturipe’s vice president of sales, shares his thoughts on this season’s crop, the health benefits of organic strawberries, and Naturipe’s most popular organic items.
“Maximizing yield to have enough food supply for a rapidly growing population was at the core of sustainable farming for my parents’ generation,” says Campos Borquez’s CEO Pablo Borquez. "Times have changed, and I believe that our part in sustainable farming’s history is being defined by the Regenerative Organic Alliance’s vision and guidelines. We feel honored and proud to have obtained the certification and be part of this movement.”
Peri & Sons Farms has instituted changes to its packaging that are allowing the Yerington, NV-based company to save a whole lot of material and reduce landfill waste. That’s important to the company, which practices sustainable measures wherever it can.
