Produce Mom blogger Lori Taylor toured field-packing operations at Salinas, Calif.-based Tanimura & Antle on a recent visit.
Taylor is the marketing manager for Indianapolis Fruit Co.
“I learned so many amazing facts about their field-packing operation and dedication to traceability,” she said in a news release. “I am beyond excited to continue to share information on this industry leader with the Produce Mom followers.”
The company’s field packing uses a special bag and sealing process to keep whole-leaf products fresh with minimal handling, said Brian Antle, lettuce production manager.
“We love having influential people immerse themselves into our company culture,” Caitlin Antle, regional sales manager, said of Taylor’s visit.
“The Produce Mom helps to bridge the communication gap between America’s fresh produce farmers and consumers,” Antle said.
