Onions 52 to Showcase Organic Tearless and Sweet Sunions® at Upcoming Southern Innovations; Falon Brawley Discusses
SYRACUSE, UT - Innovation is at the center of everything Onions 52 does. That is exactly why it is only fitting that the produce purveyor is gearing up to showcase its unique offerings at the Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) upcoming Southern Innovations. The second I heard the grower would be highlighting its Organic Tearless and Sweet Sunions®, I got in touch with Falon Brawley, Director of Marketing and Business Development, for some exclusive insights.
“Sunions are one of the best-tasting onions you will ever try, and are consistent in tearlessness and sweetness due to the tightly controlled curing and testing process before they are released to ship,” Falon tells me. “When Sunions season rolls around, we look forward to finding innovative ways to promote it. We go all out with our POS, display bins, store signage, and digital marketing offerings for our customers.”
Onions 52’s organic and conventional Sunions come into season in the beginning of November, as it begins harvesting in Washington and Utah in August. Once harvested, these onions are placed in storage for 80-85 days to cure, developing their unique tearlessness and sweet flavor. The volatiles that would typically cause teary eyes are eliminated over time—a distinctive trait of the Sunions seed that was developed over three decades of onion farming. In addition to the innovative variety, the grower will also be debuting a new consumer pack for its retail customers during the event.
“Southern Innovations is the show to attend if you are looking to network with some of the best in the industry,” Falon adds. “Whether you are a grower/shipper, retailer, foodservice provider, or general attendee, the SEPC team does an impeccable job of curating an experience that allows you to connect with key customers, both new and old, in an intimate environment adapted by all who attend. Onions 52 is a proud Gold Sponsor of SEPC, and our company benefits significantly from the meaningful connections and friendships we make every year at the spring and fall conferences.”
For Onions 52, Southern Innovations is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with its customers while also highlighting its year-round availability of premium quality onions, which it grows, packs, and ships across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. And, as it prepares to showcase such an intriguing product, one can’t help but wonder what might come next from the grower.
“Although our motto is simple, we are innovative at our core and have a strong focus on sustainable farming and packaging, so you can expect to see more from O52 on the horizon,” Falon concludes.
