LIV Organic Offers Preview of What to Expect at the Organic Produce Summit
MONTEREY, CA - And it’s here folks! The annual Organic Produce Summit (OPS) is upon us and as we build our list of people to meet and things to do, I recommend adding the LIV Organic team to the top of your list. As we point our feet in the direction of the opening party and the Monterey Conference Center, plan to be wowed by all there is to see, learn, and, of course, meet.
“Our diverse resources and deep relationships within the growing community have allowed us to help our retail partnerships thrive since day one,” Co-Founder Anthony Innocenti tells me. “LIV Organic is a grower partnership we launched in the early part of 2018 which has been built on consistent supply from several family farms and strategic packing facilities that can highlight some of the finest organic fruit and vegetables from the Western growing regions, heavily weighted in California and including Mexico.”
The LIV Organic portfolio includes all the premium organic citrus, watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, onions, potatoes, squash, peppers, and cauliflower that a retailer needs to up its organic game. The company has a 52-week program for the citrus, onions, potatoes, and squash categories and additionally provides seasonal programs for its melons, peppers, cauliflower, and heirloom tomatoes.
