Hugh Branch, South Bay Fla., is in its second year partnering with Nardelli Bros. Inc., Cedarville, N.J., offering its corn for the New Jersey company’s tray-pack operation.
“We’re really excited for that,” said Bill Nardelli Jr., vice president of sales and marketing.
“I think our packaged items have given us a lot of good exposure, and people are looking for that in stores.”
Nardelli Bros. plans to begin its Jersey Fresh corn about July 4, and have it packaged for retailers.
“We’re continuing to try to do as many items in our overwrap as we can. Whatever our retailers are looking for,” he said.
The company is also wrapping peppers, pickle cucumbers and beans.
