Watermelon board rolls out supplier database
The National Watermelon Promotion Board is rolling out a database to connect growers and distributors with buyers.
The NWPB Watermelon Supplier Database will connect retail and foodservice buyers as the summer season kicks off, according to a news release.
As the board’s staff members promote the crop to retailer and foodservice operators, through in-person meeting and digital contacts, they are encouraging buyers to use the database. Information includes which segment the company represents (grower/packer/shipper/importer/wholesaler/etc.) volume produced/handled, types of watermelons and company contact information.
The NWPB is asking industry members to help populate the database by visiting watermelon.org/supplierdatabase.
