Naturipe Farms Launches Sixth Annual FeBLUEary™ Campaign; Jim Roberts Shares

SALINAS, CA - Naturipe Farms is putting the “blue” in Fe(blue)ary. The supplier has launched its sixth annual FeBLUEary™ campaign as we kick off the second month of the year. Naturipe is reporting strong promotable volumes of its proprietary blueberry varieties as peak import season kicks off, bringing bright, juicy berries from Peru, Mexico, and Chile.

Jim Roberts, President of Sales, Naturipe Farms“We are so excited to see the fruits of our growers’ labor. They’ve well-earned their reputation for growing high-quality and delicious berries year after year,” said Jim Roberts, President of Sales. “Their dedication and commitment means retailers and shoppers are able to enjoy flavorful blueberries all year long. This first peak of the 2023 import season is an exciting time for Naturipe as we supply our exceptional proprietary varieties of the superfruit to grocery stores nationwide.”

Naturipe expects to have promotable volumes of its organic and conventional varieties in the beginning of the year through March, with the largest quantities in February. This will give retailers opportunities to promote blueberries with different pack size options, highlighting their many health benefits. The pint size packs are great for snacking, while many families prefer the larger 18 oz clamshells, a press release stated. The supplier anticipates a strong crop from California, Georgia, and Florida this spring.

Naturipe’s Globally Local™ program has a network of family growers around the world. This enables Naturipe to offer high-quality blueberries to consumers year-round. The “Blueberry Express” can ship blueberries to the United States in significantly less time, providing improved shelf-life.
