CarbAmericas offers Mexican organic asparagus
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based CarbAmericas will begin shipping Cypress Creek Organic green asparagus from Caborca, Mexico, in January.
The asparagus will load in Yuma Ariz., according to the company.
Retailers can place advance orders for the organic asparagus, according to a news release.
CarbAmericas, celebrating its 25th anniversary, said the season for Mexican organic asparagus starts in January and runs through mid-April 15, and then pick up again from October to March.
CarbAmericas will offer long-term and contract pricing for the organic asparagus, according to the release. It is available in 11- and 28-pound boxes, consisting of standard and large asparagus.
“We will also pack our organic asparagus in a 12-ounce 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,” Jeff Friedman, president of CarbAmericas, said in the release.
