HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Retail editor Ashley Nickle collected these news items Feb. 2 on the tradeshow floor at the Global Organic Produce Expo.
WISH FARMS: Marcus Caswell, senior account executive for Plant City, Fla.-based Wish Farms, shows off some Florida strawberries. The season is expected to go through March.
“It’s been a very slow start because of abnormally cold weather, but it looks like the next 10 days to two weeks we’re going to see kind of a break in the weather and production should start to increase, hopefully, right before Valentine’s Day,” Caswell said Feb. 2. “Hopefully we’re able to kind of catch that market.”
