FiveStar Gourmet Foods, Ontario, Calif., is introducing a retail and school foodservice line with 12 stock-keeping units, designed to serve families and schools during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
When history appears to repeat itself, we must ask ourselves what we can learn. Per the FDA, fresh produce has been recalled about 40 times since 2017 – mostly fresh-cut, mostly involving Listeria monocytogenes.
Fresh Del Monte Produce reported the COVID-19 pandemic dropped expected net sales of fresh, value-added and banana segments in an “unprecedented and turbulent” second quarter by an estimated $132 million.
Growers Express, which sold its fresh commodity vegetable and fresh value-added vegetable businesses to Church Brothers Farms, is moving from its longtime headquarters in Salinas, Calif., to offices in nearby Monterey.
