DiSilva Fruit and Morning Kiss Organic are ready to deliver organic and conventional citrus for the coming citrus season.
DiSilva Fruit and Morning Kiss Organic have seen tremendous growth in specialty and organic citrus over the last 5 years. "Citrus is one of the leading categories of all organic purchases, and with additional demand, as consumers aim to buy healthy foods during the current health crisis, we anticipate another strong season. Our organic citrus program gives consumers what they want – healthy, delicious fruit full of vitamin C and packaged to ensure it is being minimally handled,” says Nelly Czajkowski, Sales Manager at Morning Kiss Organic. “We’re looking forward to another successful California season,” Nelly adds.
DiSilva Fruit will again offer packaged citrus in a range of customizable sizes and formats. Offerings will include California Navels, Cara-Cara Navels, Mandarins, lemons, Limes, and Heirloom Navels.
“Since the start of the pandemic we have seen an overwhelming demand for packaged citrus. Consumers are seeking vitamin C with value and convenience,” says Alden Guptill, Sales Manager at DiSilva Fruit. “And packaged citrus is a perfect complement for the rapidly expanding home delivery and curbside offerings that retailers have greatly expanded in the last few months.”
Employing just-in-time inventory management, citrus is freshly packed to order, in customizable packaging. This reduces loss to spoilage at retail, and therefore protects the retailer's bottom line. Produce is delivered daily to ensure quality.
