“We’re the largest shipper of fresh market brussels sprouts in North America,” Corda said.
“It’s a big item for us but only the fifth- or sixth-largest that we do. We have more than 40 commodities. Iceberg lettuce is probably our largest.”
Among those, artichokes are another coastal crop for Ippolito International.
The company introduced microwaveable artichokes in a two-count bag last fall in limited quantities.
“We were transitioning from Salinas to the desert then,” Corda said April 8.
“We’re just starting to come into volume on that.”
