Importer R.C.F. Produce is now packing its Crespo Organic mangoes at its home base.
In late April Nogales, Ariz.-based R.C.F. began packing at Empaque Don Jorge, its home packinghouse in Rosario, Sinaloa, Mexico, according to a news release.
Currently, the company is packing fruit sourced from Chiapas and Oaxaca at Don Jorge, which is 11 to 14 hours from U.S. entry points in Texas and Arizona.
Don Jorge has a shipping capacity of 14 truckloads a day.
Earlier this year, R.C.F. announced it would be marketing its own Crespo Organic mangoes. Previously, the company had partnered with other U.S. marketers on distribution.
