Fresh Del Monte Announces Partnership With Apeel
CORAL GABLES, FL - There is no limit to where a powerful partnership can take you, especially in this industry. Optimizing a recent partnership with Apeel, Fresh Del Monte announced it will now be able to offer its customers longer-lasting avocados.
“As one of the top three suppliers of avocados in the U.S., we are excited to offer our customers the option to work with Apeel,” said Kirk Marquardt, Vice President of Avocado Sales. “At Fresh Del Monte, sustainability is a top priority, and we know that Apeel’s sustainable approach to reducing food waste will help to build a more resilient food system for the future. We are confident that our strong avocado program will continue to grow from this exciting partnership.”
Apeel’s innovation will allow Fresh Del Monte’s high-quality avocados to stay fresher for twice as long, according to a press release, helping to significantly reduce food waste. Apeel’s plant-based, edible coating slows the rate of water loss and oxidation, nearly doubling the shelf-life without compromising the quality, flavor, or freshness that consumers love about Fresh Del Monte’s avocados.
As a result of the partnership, Fresh Del Monte’s new and existing customers will be able to partner with the brand on their Apeel application. This will bring a new wave of benefits to the company’s growers, packers, distributors, and retailers, making it easier to provide more shoppers with premium quality avocados that stay ripe and retain their flavor for longer, all in a sustainable way.
