Mann Packing has exclusive rights to the seed variety, developed with Dutch company Nunhems. Mann Packing also added Emerald, a new petite whole leaf blend, to its Arcadian Harvest line.
Misionero Vegetables, Gonzales, Calif., began shipping Frescada, an iceberg-romaine cross, for foodservice, retail and club stores in late June, says Greg Gattis, sales commodity manager. Foodservice comes in a 5-pound bag. The club store pack is eight 2-pound bags.
The 10-pound box is broken into four 40-ounce trays of sliced, white mushrooms, which offer better food safety, portion control and cleanliness for foodservice customers, Hindman says. Monterey Mushrooms also displayed its new portabella box, which features the mushrooms in 15- and 22-count trays in a dimple package.

Garnett says the clamshell uses the same technology as the company’s Berry Quick packages, which allows it to have a 21-day shelf life.
