Homegrown Organic Farms, Porterville, Calif., has promoted Christine Toy to grape category manager.

Toy joined Homegrown Organic in 2016 as senior account manager, according to a news release, which credited her role in the growth and development of the company’s grape program. She has more than 20 years of experience in the organic industry.

“Over the past two years, Homegrown has experienced significant growth within our organic grape program,” Craig Morris, category director for the company, said in the release. “Christine’s promotion is a right step toward being able to better anticipate the needs of both our customers and growers and to exceed their expectations.

Toy’s promotion follows a recent partnership between Homegrown Organic and the Three Sister Organic brand, which allows Homegrown Organic to expand its grape program.
