Bard Valley Natural Delights® Bridgette Weber Talks 2023 Organic Produce Summit Showcase
YUMA, AZ - One of the industry’s most highly anticipated trade shows is just around the corner. Yep, I’m talking about Organic Produce Summit (OPS). Chock-full of networking opportunities and product innovations, the event inspires companies year-round. Heading into the show, I reached out to Bard Valley Natural Delights® to learn what it has in store for attendees.
“At this year’s OPS, we will be showcasing our Organic Whole and Pitted Medjool Dates. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to see our full product assortment. We are also excited to unveil our new shipper, which beautifully complements our organic product line,” Bridgette Weber, Trade Marketing Manager, told me.
A sneak peek of the shippers and other merchandising solutions can be found here.
Not only does Bard Valley Natural Delights have solutions for its partners, but it has a product that consumers know and love.
“Organic shoppers are looking for brands they can trust to provide consistent quality and a commitment to organic farming,” Bridgette noted. “We deliver on this by not only providing certified organic products, but also by prioritizing sustainable growing practices, adhering to top-notch food safety and quality standards, and valuing our dedicated team.”
As Bridgette explained to me, there is some serious data backing up date demand.
“Organic dates are about 9 percent of the date category volume, but over 14 percent of date category sales, showing that organic purchasers have an overweight spend vs. the volume,” she told me, citing Circana (IRI) data. “Natural Delights takes pride in offering these shoppers consistent, high-quality products that cater to their needs.”
If there is one thing that Bridgette hopes to impart to attendees before the show, it’s the emphasis on Bard Valley Natural Delights’ attention to the needs of the market and the willingness to step up and deliver.
“We recognize the significance and growing demand for organic products in this market segment. Natural Delights is well-prepared to meet this expanding need, and we have strategic plans in place to continue delivering exceptional organic offerings to our valued customers,” she concluded.
