Santa Maria, Calif.-based Gold Coast Packing Inc., a grower, shipper and processor of fresh produce, plans to add whole and halved Brussels sprouts to its line of specialty cut shredded Brussels sprouts by July 1, said salesman Dave Johnson.

The line addition was made as Gold Coast detected increased sales of Brussels sprouts to chefs, marketing coordinator Crystal Chavez said in a news release.

The new products will be launched in anticipation of the upcoming fall and holiday season.

The whole and halved Brussels sprouts will be sold in 5-pound packages, Johnson said.
