Tomato Thyme upgrades packing line
To ensure safer handling of its tomatoes, Tomato Thyme Corp., Wimauma, has completely enclosed its packing operations.
The climate-controlled building keeps product under refrigeration from arrival, during precooling, cleaning, handling and packaging until loading in the truck, said Michael Lacey, director of sales and marketing.
In other news, to help extend the sales of the Tasti-Lee tomatoes it sells Tomato Thyme created Tasti-Lee salsa.
Distributed by its White Diamond Farms processing division, Lacey said it makes sense to offer another Tasti-Lee-branded product that shoppers enjoy.
