Grimmway Highlights New Crop Cal-Organic Dry Onions and Seasonal Sweet Corn



BAKERSFIELD, CA - Consistency in the fresh produce department is more essential now than ever, especially for those organic shoppers who have vegetables at the tops of their lists. Thanks to Grimmway and Cal-Organic Farms, retailers will get a bump in all-things value as the operations begin shipping freshly-harvested, new crop yellow, red, and white onions from Lamont, California. Cal-Organic is also shipping seasonal sweet corn in bulk cartons through June.

Bob Borda, Vice President of Organic Sales, Grimmway Farms"Growing conditions have been ideal this year and we're expecting a good crop," said Bob Borda, Vice President of Organic Sales at Grimmway Farms. "While the desert experienced mild temperatures throughout the growing season, the overall condition and quality of our onion crop are excellent and we're looking forward to a great season."
