On May 7, the Los Angeles-based Gourmet Trading publicized its program to pack and market blueberries for Salinas, Calif.-based Green Giant Fresh.
The program also features the General Mills’ Box Tops for Education.
A North American distributor of asparagus and blueberries, Gourmet Trading Green plans to begin packing from California by late May, according to a news release.
Gourmet Trading plans to offer the blueberries in 4.4-, 6-, 11- and 18-ounce clamshells.
“Blueberries are the perfect snack for kids and a natural fit for Green Giant Fresh and the Box Tops for Education program,” Jamie Strachan, Green Giant Fresh’s president and chief executive officer, said in the release. “Gourmet Trading is a key supplier for Green Giant Fresh and we are thrilled to extend our relationship with them to include blueberries.”
