Pacific Trellis starts shipping premium grape line in December
Specifications call for high brix and large sizes, according to a news release.
“We recently had the opportunity to visit the farms in three major growing regions in Peru and not only did the fields look fantastic, but we also had the opportunity to learn more about their new practices for quality, food safety, and traceability,” Marcial Hernandez, director of South American imports for Pacific Trellis, said in the release.
The Dulcinea brand grapes are available in red, green and black seedless varieties.
“By setting a premium specification for the grapes regardless of origin or variety that will be packed in the Dulcinea brand, we feel we can simplify things for retailers and consumers,” Josh Leichter, general manager, said in the release.
The first season rollout for the premium Dulcinea grapes starts in December with limited quantities, packed in random-weight bags or fixed-weight packages.
The company is developing an eco-friendly paper bag, according to the release.
