Short video series returns to assist shoppers and produce managers

LOS ALAMITOS, CA (June 2015) — Frieda’s Specialty Produce premieres its 2015 YouTube video series with “Specialty Produce 101: Angelcot®”— just in time to kick off the season for Frieda’s exclusive white apricots. Third-generation Caplan family member Alex Jackson, daughter of President & CEO Karen Caplan and granddaughter of founder Dr. Frieda Caplan, returns as the host.

Produced in-house in Frieda’s test kitchen, these one-and-a-half minute videos offer interesting facts and recipe ideas for specialty items such as Jackfruit, Dragon Fruit, Fennel, and Pine Nuts. The videos are also used by Frieda’s clients to train their produce managers.

Four more videos are planned for this season.

Interested retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice distributors can contact Frieda’s to pre-book the limited-availability, Frieda’s exclusive Angelcots®.
