Cal-Organic Now Shipping Seasonal Celery and Limited-Edition Red Bunch Carrots
BAKERSFIELD, CA - This is an exciting week in the produce department, as Cal-Organic Farms is now shipping organic red bunch carrots and celery out of Coachella, California. This exclusive red carrot variety will be available in bunches for a limited-time only, with supplies expected to last through Easter. The Grimmway Farms division also expects to ship seasonal celery through the end of February.
“Outstanding sweet flavor is what makes our red carrot variety truly unique. These specialty carrots feature vibrant red color through the root and make for beautiful plate presentation,” said Bob Borda, Vice President of Organic Sales.
California-grown organic red bunch carrots are available in 12 and 24-count cases with green tops intact, according to a press release. An excellent source of vitamin A, this variety is favored by shoppers for its colorful appearance. The variety is among the dozens of fresh carrot products available from Grimmway and Cal-Organic Farms.
“Celery quality looks great as well, with bright green color and firm, crisp texture,” added Borda.
Cal-Organic also offers its premium celery in 24, 30, 36, and 48-count cases with bib ties or packed in sleeves. Two-count celery hearts packed in sleeves are also available in 18-count cases. Low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals, celery is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin A, and folate.
The red carrot and celery programs are integrated with Cal-Organic’s year-round vegetable program and Grimmway’s category-leading carrot business, which combines quality and convenience for customers. The company also offers robust merchandising support and custom recipe content to help promote seasonal and year-round items in the store.
