The Giumarra Cos., Los Angeles, has plans to increase the variety of its grape offerings, according to Tom Wilson, grape sales manager.
“Organic grapes are in the works for the future,” he said.
Currently, the company offers Fair Trade-certified grapes grown in Mexico.
“Giumarra works with Fair Trade and our customers to develop Fair Trade programs and promotions which highlight the socially-conscious nature of the program and how it directly benefits farmworkers and their families,” Wilson said.
In addition, Giumarra also hopes to eventually offer new red, green and black varieties.
“We also have several new proprietary varieties being evaluated for future production,” Wilson said.
