With well over three decades of experience in the organic produce industry, Todd Linsky has seen the category grow and evolve from its early days to the well-established sector it is today.
Verdant Technologies, based in Centennial, CO, considers itself an expert in the science of freshness. “We are a technology company focused on extending the shelf life of many fruits and vegetables along the supply chain,” said Steven Oklesh, product lead director for the company.
Douglas Raggio founded his company Pass the Honey in 2018 after learning about fraud in the honey industry. Around that time, he’d been regularly making himself lemon-ginger tea to help support his immune system—and he didn’t want to continue sweetening it with honey that was likely fake.
Awe Sum Organics, the largest importer of organic table grapes from the Southern Hemisphere, has begun the tenth season of its organic Peruvian winter table grape program. Awe Sum’s Founder and President David Posner said harvesting has begun in a very light way, with volume slated to pick up by early December and last into April.
