The new National Watermelon Promotion Board Watermelon Supplier Database is a platform to connect retail and foodservice buyers with suppliers as the summer season takes off.
Each year the NWPB staff promote watermelon to retail and foodservice audiences, both in-person and digitally. When a contact asks where they can get watermelon, this new database will help connect the dots. The new Watermelon Supplier Database is based
on the new watermelon.org in the Industry, Retail and Foodservice sections and can be found here, so all interested groups can easily access the database.
The Board is still working to populate the database so if a member of the watermelon industry is interested, please visit this link. Multiple roles in the industry are encouraged to be a part of the database including wholesalers, growers, importers, brokers, processors, seed, transportation companies and more.
