Fred Koornneef, president of Koornneef Produce Ltd. at the Ontario Food Terminal, said he’s pleased with the response to his year-old packaging program. The greenhouse grower and importer said he’s packing pepper, mini cucumbers and tomatoes in bags under the Koornneef label.
“The reception has been good among major retailers and foodservice and we’re looking to expand to U.S. retailers this year,” Koornneef said.
Among its U.S. and Mexican imports, the company is bringing in roma field tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant and grape tomatoes. He said the company experienced steady growth in 2013 and he anticipates a strong 2014.
