Lipman Family Farms to Showcase Fresh-Cut Offerings at International Fresh Produce Association's Foodservice Conference; Darren Micelle Shares
IMMOKALEE, FL - Value-added offerings tend to offer a heightened level of convenience when it comes to the foodservice sector, and Lipman Family Farms has a suite of products in store for operators looking to streamline their kitchen operations. The grower’s evolving category of value-added Lipman Fresh-Cuts are currently taking the spotlight at International Fresh Produce Association’s (IFPA) Foodservice Conference.
“Fresh-cut produce has become a great option for restaurant and foodservice partners looking to simplify their operations,” said Darren Micelle, President of Value-Added Services. “With increasing labor costs, restaurant operators can turn to us for assistance in back-of-house preparation of ingredients so they can overall improve their consumer experience.”
This full lineup includes a variety of different items with varying pack styles to meet the demand for fresh-cut, ready-to-eat products. As noted in a press release, Lipman Family Farms puts a strong focus on supporting foodservice and retail customers with its core product line of tomatoes, onions, and dry vegetables, thanks to the company’s robust sourcing network and control over supply.
Lipman Fresh-Cuts are processed out of the supplier’s six cutting-edge facilities across North America utilizing processes that ensure the end-product is ready to use and has a longer shelf-life with durable trays and bags. Optimizing in-house food safety experts and third-party auditing, Lipman Family Farms monitors these products at all levels, collecting retention samples for every batch to ensure the quality of every order.
As it spotlights these offerings during the show, Lipman will also be showing off an innovative fresh produce recipe, which attendees will have a chance to enjoy at the event.
The flavorful recipe is inspired by its summer 2022 culinary newsletter, NewsBites, whis is offered as a supplemental resource for the company’s foodservice customers to provide fresh trends, insights, and fresh produce inspiration.
