Awe Sum Organics will have their new crop, organic and Fair Trade Certified seedless red and green table grapes from Sonora, Mexico available for loading in Nogales, AZ starting on May 18th. The black seedless should be available starting the following week, with organic Candy Snaps in early June.
Awe Sum Organics' Mexican grapes will be available from mid-May through the end of June. Each variety is available in 18lb boxes of pouch bags, 90 cases per pallet.
Mexico’s grape crop volume is projected to be around 20 percent lower than it was in 2019. The early green seedless production suffered from a freeze and is projected to be around half of the volume packed in 2019.
The company's organic Mexican table grapes from Sonora, Mexico, are Fair Trade Certified, signifying a portion of the purchase price will be given back to the workers and local communities (where the fruit is grown, harvested and packed). The Fair Trade premium is used for
important projects to improve the local community such as books and
supplies for local schools, as well as funds for emergency medical
facilities that serve the community.
In addition, Fair Trade Certification guarantees fair wages and safe working conditions for all workers. The benefits of Fair Trade are even greater during this current health crisis.
“All of our Awe Sum Organic grapes from Sonora, Mexico are Fair
Trade Certified, just like our organic table grapes from Peru, we feel
it’s important to give back to the local community involved in
growing, harvesting, packing and shipping our Awe Sum Organics
In addition to our red, green, and black seedless varieties,
we are excited to introduce our Awe Sum Organics Candy Snaps
which are a new variety with a delightful, ultra-sweet and tropically
fruity flavor,” said David Posner, President, CEO and Founder of Awe
