US: Third season of Awe Sum Organics’ winter Peruvian grapes is here

Awe Sum Organics, the largest importer of Organic Apples and Organic Kiwifruit in North America, has begun the third season of their exclusive Organic Peruvian Grape Program. The first Organic Green Seedless Sugraones arrived just last week, and their Organic Red Seedless Crimson Grapes are starting to arrive now.

David Posner, Founder and CEO of Awe Sum Organics recently traveled to the vineyard in November to see the fruit in the field just as the Sugraone harvest began. “The large berries of our Organic Sugraones are wonderfully sweet, crisp and delicious,” said Posner. These Organic Peruvian grapes have been in development since early 2007 when Posner dreamed of creating an Organic Grape Program in the winter months to compliment the domestic grape season.

The Organic Grape Program will finish with Organic Seeded Red Globes, which start after the seedless varieties end, sometime in January. The Red Globes boast the largest berry size of all three of Awe Sum’s varieties, as well as a remarkable eating quality. “Our Organic Red Globes will be available in larger volumes than our Organic Seedless Crimsons,” said Nick Moless, Program Manager for Awe Sum Organics. Awe Sum has received a tremendously positive reception to the Red Globe seeded grapes. “Two years ago there was concern about selling seeded grapes,” stated Mr. Moless, “but our accounts found their customers bought them in similar volumes as the seedless varieties and were incredibly successful with them.”

“All three of our grape varieties are Fair for Life certified by IMO Switzerland which guarantees fair wages, good working conditions and social responsibility at each and every stage of production and throughout the distribution chain,” said Posner. The Fair for Life social premiums—which go directly to the worker-administered community social programs—from the sales of last year’s grapes completed a preschool for the children of the worker community. “This beautiful preschool building is situated in the village of Sol Sol which is within two kilometers of our organic grape fields. Funds collected this season will be used to build another classroom, and to train primary and secondary teachers in the community,” added Posner.

Awe Sum Organics grapes are also Non-GMO Project Verified—“Organic is automatically GMO-free, but we choose for our products to be labeled Non-GMO Project Verified because we respect people’s right to know what’s in their food,” stated Posner.

Since 1985, Awe Sum Organics has been a leader in the organic movement. “Throughout our growth, we have remained dedicated to the principles on which Awe Sum Organics was founded. In addition to outstanding taste and quality, our fruit embodies core ethics which we will never compromise. We believe in doing what is right for humankind, and the environment as a whole,” said Posner.

This season Awe Sum Organics grapes come in two pack styles; an 18lb carton, containing twelve Handle Pouch Bags (all three varieties), and an 11lb carton containing ten 500 gram—1lb 1.6 oz—Clamshells (Sugraone Green Seedless and Red Globe Seeded).
