Starting in November, Braga Fresh Family Farms will be cooling and shipping its line of Josie’s Organics vegetables from the Tanimura & Antle facility in Yuma, Ariz.
The new collaboration enables consolidation of loads of Braga’s organic product with Tanimura & Antle’s conventionally grown crops, among other benefits.
“Braga and Tanimura & Antle have always been innovative and committed to quality,” Mike Antle, executive vice president and partner at Tanimura & Antle, said in a news release. “Offering this added convenience is a way for both companies to demonstrate our commitment to premium service and helping our customers.”
“We see this opportunity as a perfect fit for Josie’s Organics, our customers and Tanimura & Antle customers,” said Rod Braga, president and chief executive officer of Soledad, Calif.-based Braga Fresh.
Josie’s Organics products, available year-round, include broccoli, sweet baby broccoli, celery, cilantro, parsley, kale, collards, romaine, spinach, beets and radishes.
