The Giumarra Co., Los Angeles, is now offering a 12-month supply of Colombian golden pineapples.
The fruit, grown by Bengala Agricola in the Valle de Cauca in Colombia, will begin arriving Sept. 4, according to a Giumarra news release. Fruit is scheduled to arrive at the Ports of New York and Philadelphia on the East Coast, and at the Port of Long Beach on the West Coast.
“Our grower Bengala is offering the only certified Costa Rican MD2 golden pineapple seed in Colombia,” said Tom Richardson, vice president of global development for Giumarra, in the release. “Our customers can trust the quality will be excellent and delivers a superior eating experience to consumers.
They will be available in single-layer cartons of 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 counts.
Bengala grows pineapples on more than 1,700 acres, according to the release. It is certified by GlobalGAP, BASC (Business Alliance for Secure Commerce) and by the International Compliance Association.
“Giumarra Wenatchee is excited to offer this specialty, high-value item to our North American customers every week throughout the year,” Jason Bushong, division manager, said in the release. “Valle de Cauca’s lower rainfall rate results in consistent pineapple availability year-round.”
