Bridges Organic Produce Reports on a Steady Market



MEXICO - Whoever came up with the phrase “cool as a cucumber” was probably talking about Bridges Organic Produce. Okay, maybe not. But that’s the attitude the company maintains even through the rainy season. Currently transitioning its organic cucumber crop from Hermosillo to Culiacán, Bridges expects to see routine quality and volume within the next few months. For more on all things cucumbers, I deferred to Oscar Trujillo, Nogales Category Manager at Bridges Produce.

Oscar Trujillo, Nogales Category Manager, Bridges Organic Produce“Our organic cucumbers come from Hermosillo and Culiacán Mexico from mid-September through May and are branded Rico Farms (Hermosillo) and Aztlan Organic (Culiacán). Both of these labels are sold exclusively through Bridges Produce,” Oscar told me.

As to be expected, the recent onslaught of rain slowed production slightly for the grower, but quality is otherwise on par with its expectations as no damages to crops were reported.

“Good quantities will continue to arrive from Culiacán, but we don't expect to have the next volume/promotional push until we transition back to Hermosillo in April,” said Oscar.

He continued by telling me that the cucumber market is currently very stable, and although there are many shippers in the organic market, high demand has kept pricing stable as well.
