The specialty produce company continues to add organic specialties to its lineup
LOS ALAMITOS, CA (March 2016) – Frieda’s Specialty Produce meets the growing demand for organic produce by offering many of its broad range of specialty items as organics. One of the biggest sellers right now is organic fresh ginger.
“We’ve seen demand for organic ginger continuing to grow, mirroring available supplies,” said Alex Jackson, senior account manager and organic product manager. “Frieda’s continues to supply conventional ginger as well as USDA-accredited Bio Latina-certified organic ginger from Peru.”
Organic ginger was highlighted as a trending produce item at the world’s biggest organic fair, BioFach, held in Nuremberg, Germany, in February. This zesty spice is a favorite for health enthusiast shoppers, and is especially popular for those who add fresh ginger to their juicing recipes. Other top-selling organic items at Frieda’s include young coconuts, vaniglia oranges and other specialty citrus, alliums, and Frieda’s signature Stokes Purple® sweet potatoes.
Interested retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice distributors can contact Frieda’s account managers to get a complete list of available organic items and other trending products, and gain access to Frieda’s extensive product information, high resolution images, and recipe database.
