A & A Organic Farms out of Watsonville, CA has started receiving its first containers of garlic from Argentina.
A & A has increased garlic production in all supplying regions.
“With both organic and conventional available this year, we took the opportunity to pack this year’s crop in our new ‘Double A' label’” said Andy Martin, president of A & A. “We’ve expanded A & A's Organic Farms’ imported garlic offerings. Garlic has always been a strong commodity for us, thanks to the excellent quality our grower's produce. We have increased garlic production in all regions to offer our customers a steady year-round supply.”
Martin says it’s created the 'Double A' label to celebrate its long-standing relationships with its Latin America growers. “In Latin America we are known as Doble' A or Double A. We made our ‘nickname’ into a label for our garlic programs in Argentina and in Mexico,” says Martin.
A & A is packing this year’s crop under its new ‘Double A' label.
Conventional garlic is shipped in white 'Doble' A' boxes and organic garlic is shipped in kraft-colored 'Double A' boxes. The garlic arrives in a 30-pound box with 80 cases per pallet. “Once we have exhausted our Argentine garlic we will begin importing garlic from our Mexican growers,” says Martin.
