Del Monte expanding organic fresh-cut fruit operation
Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A. plans to expand its organic fresh-cut fruit production in North America.
The expansion will focus on expanding fresh-cut fruit offerings in the U.S. and Canada, which will include diversifying the variety of SKUs available. The expansion to organic fresh-cut fruit production comes as a result of popular trends and rising demand for organic products. Continuing to meet consumers’ desires and needs, the brand ensures its organic produce has consistent quality, freshness and reliability in its raw product.
The organic fresh-cut fruit expansion will allow for added retail convenience, as fruit will be cut to order prior to distribution. Since fruits cannot be cut in-store, this process eliminates a hassle for retail stores and will help continue to incrementally grow retail sales. Produce is cut-to-order at each facility for direct, next-day deliveries and pickups.
“Our team is always working to find new and innovative solutions to meet the needs of our consumers, and we are excited to offer our customers greater freshness and efficiencies in the organic fresh-cut fruit category,” said Kirk Teske, VP, Product Management and Sales, Fresh-Cut N.A, through a press release. “We’re committed to providing our customers with new and existing products that fit their various lifestyles and look forward to getting the freshest produce in their hands.”
