Lipman Family Farms Announces Introduction of Two Award-Winning Tomatoes; Elyse Lipman Shares
IMMOKALEE, FL - Two premium tomato varieties are joining Lipman Family Farms’ already robust lineup. As the provider bolsters its strong portfolio, Monet Red™ and Bellavina® have been introduced under the brand.
“We are excited to introduce two new flavorful tomatoes and delighted to receive international acclaim for their taste profiles,” shared Elyse Lipman, Chief Executive Officer of Lipman Family Farms. “Our commitment to research and development to grow innovative varieties with flavor as the key differentiator has come to fruition.”
Each of the flavorful varieties was recently recognized by the International Taste Institute’s 2023 Superior Taste Award, demonstrating their impressive taste profiles.
Available year-round, Lipman’s Monet Red is a greenhouse-grown, cocktail-type tomato that is picked fresh from the vine. Perfectly round and boasting a naturally sweet flavor, these cocktail tomatoes are great for any garden salad, pasta dish, or hors d’oeuvres.
Also joining Lipman’s year-round tomato lineup, Bellavina is a greenhouse-grown tomato on the vine that is excellent for freshly slicing, cooking, roasting, or blending for sauces. This renowned variety earned an impressive overall mark from the International Taste Institute, receiving three of three stars, a press release explained.
“Our commitment to growing world-class food is a passion shared across our company,” shared Lipman. “We recognize the importance of bringing new, exciting options to consumers across North America and are committed to partnering with the best in the industry to source improved greenhouse varietals.”
These two varieties are part of Lipman’s innovation pipeline, rich with flavor, the release went on to note. Both of the varieties are offered in premium packaging with bold branding to increase consumer awareness in the produce department.
The high-quality, award-winning varieties will be on display at Southeast Produce Council’s Southern Innovations show this month at booth #633, as well as the International Fresh Produce Association’s Global Produce & Floral Show this October at booth #3465.
