Giorgio Fresh's Doug Stewart Discusses New Products at SEPC Southern Exposure 2019



ORLANDO, FL - Innovation abounds at produce shows; it’s almost as though we as an industry don’t know how to stop being so darn creative! I spoke with Giorgio Fresh’s Vice President of Sales, Northeast Region, Doug Stewart, to learn more about the innovative mushroom products the company is serving up.

Doug Stewart, VP of Sales, Northeast Region, Giorgio Fresh“We have a Portabella Jerky, called Savory Wild™ and, as we heard at the luncheon this morning, people are looking for a plant-based item. This is a delicious mushroom jerky, and we have three different flavors, which we’re getting very nice experience with at many different retailers,” Doug said.

The new Savory Wild portabella jerky is a plant-based item for the healthy consumer

Available in Roasted Garlic & Black Pepper, Sesame, Ginger & Korean Chili, and Sweet Balsamic & Golden Fig, this mushroom jerky brings snacking to a whole new level. You may have seen me munching on some out on the show floor!

Giorgio's stuffed mushroom lines comes in microwaveable and ovenable trays

Giorgio was also showcasing its stuffed line of mushrooms, which come in a microwaveable and ovenable tray. You only have to wrap, heat, and enjoy! The line is available in three flavors: Artichoke, Spinach & Cheese; Fiesta Cheese; and Cheese & Imitation Bacon Bit.

To end, Doug told me that Giorgio also debuted a new label on its organic and conventional mushrooms. So much innovation, so little time!
