Progressive Produce Kicks Off Northern Baja Asparagus Season; Sean Barganski Shares
LOS ANGELES, CA - Summer brings about some delicious eating opportunities here in the Northern Hemisphere, as the heat inspires wonderful culinary creations to enjoy outside with loved ones. Adding to the array of high-quality fresh produce offerings this season, Progressive Produce has announced the opening of its fields in Northern Baja, where the region's moderate coastal climate produces quality asparagus for consumers.
“Every year, we look forward to our Northern Baja season. As we get through July, where weather is unpredictable down in Central Mexico, it is great to have this reliable region's crop coming into harvest,” explained Sean Barganski, Sales Manager. "We will be able to offer our customers promotable volume in a high-quality pack throughout August. Our team in Mexico is reporting fantastic quality from their first pack outs, and we should expect that to continue for the entirety of this late summer season."
Progressive has been farming the region for more than a decade and continues to add acreage each year to maintain a high-quality supply of asparagus in the area, according to a press release. This year, the produce purveyor is especially looking forward to its purple asparagus offerings from the Northern Baja fields.
Throughout the rest of the year, Progressive offers a full lineup of conventional, organic, white, and purple asparagus for buyers.
"Progressive is a one-stop shop for its customers to get their full offerings of asparagus," added Barganski. "Having this asparagus just across the border from our state-of-the-art cold storage warehouse in Southern California allows for a quick turnaround from harvest to distribution to our retail and food service customers."
Product will be packed in 11 lb boxes, but Progressive also has the capability to pack 28 lb boxes. The company offers a dynamic bag program available in many sizes and styles in addition.
