A & A Organic Farms expands tomato line

Watsonville, Calif.-based A & A Organic Farms has expanded its heirloom tomato program, and has an array of additions, from Persian cucumbers to broccoli, to its product lineup.

The company’s additional products include ginger, and organic turmeric from Jamaica, according to a news release. 

The company plans to showcase its expanded lines, including rainbow cherry and cocktail tomatoes-on-the-vine at the Organic Produce Summit July 10-11 in Monterey, Calif.

A & A Organic’s president, Andy Martin, said in the release that the company will debut a year-round organic lemon program from Sonora, Mexico, and organic avocados from Michoacan, Mexico.

In 2018, A & A won the Organic Innovations Showcase Award for Most Innovative Packaging at the show, for a recyclable cardboard container for 1 pound of strawberries, according to the release. The company packs strawberries, cherry tomatoes, raspberries, blackberries and sugar snap peas in the packages, according to a news release. 

A & A is carrying an increased volume of — and more diverse — tomatoes in 2019.

“We’ll have more totally in units, but it’s going to be spread over more items. Last year, we had a whole bunch of the same thing,” Martin said in the release. A & A will be at booth 730.
