Sunripe Certified Brands Ramps Up For Southern Exposure; Jon Esformes Tells All
PALMETTO, FL - With Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) Southern Exposure comes a great opportunity to uncover all that the critical ag region has to offer. As a southern grower with operations in Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee, in addition to Mexico, Sunripe Certified Brands embodies the vitality of the region and the produce it provides.
“The southeast region represents a 12-month supply of the finest vegetables that are grown in the United States and, quite frankly, North America,” Chief Executive Officer and Operating Partner Jon Esformes begins. “We're really proud to be part of that farming and agricultural community, so it's natural for us to be excited about Southern Exposure, and it’s why we participate in all the SEPC shows.”
With farming operations spanning Florida to Tennessee, Sunripe is able to follow the sun each season, growing tomatoes in areas that provide the highest level of quality and consistency for its portfolio. The supplier’s Tennessee operation has expanded quickly over the last two years, allowing the company to achieve proximity that allows it to efficiently deploy resources and be in the most ideal farming regions for its fresh market tomatoes.
As the grower hits the show floor this week, Sunripe will be highlighting its fresh market, round, Roma, grape, and Cherry tomatoes as it connects with new and old faces and sets out to demonstrate the strength of the southeast region.
“Southern Exposure is a representation of the depth and power of southern agriculture. What we are really excited about is representing the southeast farming community to customers all across North America,” says Jon. “We’re also looking forward to seeing people that we do business with on a daily and weekly basis and being able to reconnect with them in person.”
