Orange, Calif.-based Interfresh is now shipping blueberries from Langley, British Columbia-based Driediger Farms.
“Rhonda Driediger and her team do a fabulous job producing and packing very high-quality fruit for the fresh market,” Interfresh president Chris Puentes said in a news release. “This new BC deal extends our season nicely and complements our Pacific Berry Farms program of U.S.-grown blueberries, blackberries and strawberries.”
The fruit will be marketed under the Driediger Farms label in the western U.S. market. Driediger has been growing and packing blueberries since 1964.
“We are very pleased to be associated with Driediger Farms and their outstanding team,” Carolyn Chang, director of berry programs for Interfresh, said in the release. “We are looking forward to supplying our retail and foodservice customers with these excellent berries.”
The berries ship from British Columbia and from the Interfresh distribution center in Los Angeles.
Interfresh also has a new website, http://www.getinterfresh.com/.
“The new site more accurately portrays our position in the supply chain as a marketer of fresh fruits and vegetables and celebrates the fact that Interfresh has been delivering fresh produce solutions to our customers for more than 30 years,” Puentes said in the release. “We call it ‘30 Years of Fresh Ideas.’”
