HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Editor-in-chief Tom Karst collected these news items Feb. 2 on the tradeshow floor at the Global Organic Produce Expo.
WEST PAK AVOCADO: Scott Ross, director of sales-East for West Pak Avocados, displays the organic versions of ‘Lil Cado and the “I love Avocados” packs.
The conventional and organic versions of ‘Lil Cados were released a couple of months ago, and the organic version of I Love Avocados is brand new, he says.
“This is really consumer driven — it is single-serve, cut it open and eat the whole thing, it is portion controlled, it is value,” he says.
The company also introduced new designs for its conventional and organic standard lugs, in addition to new single-layer box for organic. “With foodservice demand for organic growing, it gives our customers an option to maintain their inventories,” he says.
