Vision Import Group, Hackensack, N.J., offers a year-round lemon program with imports from Mexico and Spain.

As part of its commitment to its suppliers, the company sent Raul Millan, executive vice president of Vision Import Group, to visit the operations of the supplier of the company's branded Mr. Squeeze lemons in Tamaulipas, Mexico. Vision Import Group imports from the area from April to January, sourcing from Spain to fill the gap.

Visiting a supplier's operations helps him connect and understand the grower's business, Millan said in a news release. "These connections help fuel our passion for produce and that trickles down to our sales team and customers."
