Streamlining its repacking, Lipman recently launched a vegetable consolidation program.
Under the new program, the Immokalee, Fla.-based grower-shipper repacks vegetables to customer specifications and streamlines the farming and packing process by reducing handling, according to a news release.
While Lipman is primarily known for tomatoes, it also grows vegetables including bell peppers, eggplant, zucchini, squash and cucumbers.
The vegetable consolidation program helps enhance its ability to provide fresher product, Lipman officials said in the release.
“While we grow different vegetables on farms throughout North America, having one location that showcases all of our vegetables has been a great benefit — both to us and our customers,” Scott Rush, Lipman’s Estero, Fla., farm manager, said in the release. “We’re able to bring customers to one farm, and they’re able to see, tour and taste everything we grow.”
