Baloian Farms Highlights Range of Foodservice Offerings; Jay Angulo Shares
FRESNO, CA - If variety is the spice of life, Baloian Farms is bringing the entire spice rack to the foodservice sector. As operators look for convenient, high-quality products to cut down back-of-house prep time while still guaranteeing consumers get the best-tasting menu items, the grower has the optimal lineup to meet their needs. Jay Angulo, Sales, gave me the inside track on what foodservice buyers can expect.
“We have offerings packaged in all different sizes, including 2, 4, and 5 lb bags,” says Jay. “Baloian offers an extensive list of pack sizes and styles to accommodate our customers’ needs, making us a great partner for foodservice buyers as the demands of the sector differ from retail. Some prefer the packaged options in various sizes, while others prefer the bulk cartons and 5 or 10 lb cartons that cater to specific needs of the chefs, restaurants, and food trucks they service.”
Among the products Baloian supplies are bagged mixed bell peppers, mini sweet peppers, eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, and hard squash. Not to mention the grower’s chili peppers, including Anaheim, Habanero, Jalapeño, Pasilla, Serrano, Shishito, and Tomatillo varieties.
Adding an extra layer of convenience to buyers’ experience, Baloian not only offers a myriad of products and packaging options but has the capabilities to load all of its different chilis, hard squash, and peppers in one place. In other words, the company comes close to being a one-stop shop for retail and foodservice, a segment it is continuing to cater to.
“We’ve developed a nice customer base and are always looking to expand that aspect of our business,” Jay explains. “Foodservice is such a fun and exciting portion of the produce industry, and we’re looking forward to expanding that area of offering further in the years to come.”
