GloriAnn FarmsTracy, Calif.-based Prima Bella Produce is now GloriAnn Farms, matching the company’s name to its GloriAnn label for sweet corn.

“We are known and sought after for our GloriAnn brand countrywide,” company president Mark Bacchetti said in a news release. “The change to GloriAnn Farms reinforces this reputation.”

It also strengthens product positioning, according to Bacchetti, who founded the company in 2001 with his wife, Mary. The label derives from his mother’s name — Gloria Ann.

No changes to staff, facilities or services are planned.

Brawley, Calif.-based Five Crowns Marketing handles sales and marketing for GloriAnn Farms. Five Crowns’ Bill Colace and Joe Colace became partners in the Tracy company in 2010.

GloriAnn ships yellow, white and bicolor sweet corn in various pack styles, including bulk carton corn, husked and cleaned cobs and mini-cobs. Windowed multipacks come with microwaveable trays.

GloriAnn uses iceless packaging technology, tested and developed on site, to maintain freshness.

Its website is www.gloriannfarms.com.

I purchased your white sweet twice. Both packages were sweet and tender. I would like to continue buying your corn but have a question. Is your corn genetically modified?

The Glory Ann Farms website is now back up and running, and I just read in their FAQs that all their corn is GMO free. I am so relieved to know this because my triglycerides go way up (680!) if I eat GMO foods, and come back down to normal range (132) if I am diligent in avoiding GMOs. So I will be purchasing a lot more of their sweet corn now that I know it is safe and telling others about it too. I wrote them an email suggesting that they label their corn GMO free. They will sell a lot more packages that way, because people are becoming more and more aware of the dangers of GMO foods

I agree, I was just reading to find out if Glori Ann corn was GMO free and glad to find they are! If not we would have stopped buying them.

Is your corn from Cost Co genetically engineered?
