According to the new rule, the “CFIA will limit entry into Canada of leafy green products from Arizona to those handled by shippers that are certified members of the Arizona Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement.”
The company has a new website (fieldfreshproduce.com) and developed new conventional and organic retail packaging.
“When it became clear retailers were looking for additional sources of conventional and organic produce, we quickly adapted,” Fernando Ramirez, sales manager, said in a news release. “Now we have the capacity to continue to meet the needs of our foodservice customers, while also filling a gap for the growing retail segment."

- Sweet Kale Salad Kit: Green cabbage, kale, shredded broccoli, Brussels sprouts and radicchio, topped with pepitas, dried cranberries and poppy seed dressing;
- Blueberry Bliss Salad Kit: Spinach, baby red chard and carrots, topped with almonds, dried blueberries and blueberry lemon dressing; and
