Country Sweet Produce Teases PMA Fresh Summit Highlights
BAKERSFIELD, CA - Each year, the best and brightest in produce gather at PMA Fresh Summit to share knowledge and know-how. This year’s event addresses crucial industry topics like sustainability, innovation, organics, and more, while offering a golden opportunity to reconnect with friends, business associates, and other produce pros. Each company is poised to showcase their latest and greatest, so there will be no shortage of spectacular produce. But if you’re craving something sweet, you’d be well advised to take a trip to the Country Sweet booth, where you’ll find a bounty of Baby Sweet Potatoes.
“Baby Sweet Potatoes are the perfect side, they’re as versatile as they are nutritious,” Bob Haarhues, Director of Sales and Marketing, told me. “These enjoyable little sweet potatoes come in 24-ounce bags and weigh about two to four ounces each and are three to four inches long, while a typical medium-sized sweet potato may weigh between six and eight ounces and can be up to eight inches in length.”
Those Baby Sweets are real crowd pleasers—aside from being delicious, they are available year round in both organic and conventional varieties, so there’s something for everyone. With the holiday season fast approaching, buyers would do well to stock up on the versatile veg that always delivers on nutrition and taste.
“Consumers have been totally hooked on these miniature Baby Sweet Potatoes,” Bob said. “Quoting consumer feedback: ‘Baby Sweet Potatoes are our new favorite side, the smaller size of these sweet potatoes makes for a much faster cooking time, whether in the microwave or oven. We easily make these even when time is short!’”
At the show, the company will be featuring show-stopping offerings that include the aforementioned Baby Sweet Potatoes, as well as several packaging innovations like Country Sweet’s Steam in Bag, Organic three-pound bags, and trays.
