Origin Organic Farms To Be Featured at Oppy's Booth at Organic Produce Summit
DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Organic Produce Summit is the go-to organic destination for the produce industry and one such company bringing the organic goods is Oppy. The produce marketer will be showcasing its branded organic produce line, OriginO, which offers tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. These premium vegetables are grown by Origin Organic Farms.
“The OriginO team has a huge amount of passion about growing organics ‘the right way,’” said Darren Bonnell, Greenhouse Category Manager, Oppy. “They only pack produce they feel very proud of into their brand, and that says a lot about the quality our customers and their shoppers ultimately experience. They really do set the gold standard on quality and especially flavor.”
Those who visit Oppy’s booth 407 will meet with Raymond Wong, President of Origin Organic Farms, and sample new cocktail tomato varieties currently being trialed at Origin Organic Farms’ home in Delta, British Columbia.
“OPS brings together thought leaders in the organic industry,” Raymond Wong, President, Origin Organic Farms, said. “We always come away with good insights and ideas. And, of course it’s great to catch up with customers about how the season is unfolding in their stores and in our greenhouses.”
According to a press release, Wong adjusted his growing mix slightly this year, adding more orange and yellow sweet bell peppers to meet the strong demand for colored bell peppers in the summer months. He also noted that greenhouse production is inherently flexible, meaning it can produce as often the the market needs. All OriginO branded organic items are produced exclusively in soil, which Wong advocates as the true growing method for greenhouse organics. OriginO branded organic greenhouse cucumbers are available from Oppy through October and its tomatoes-on-the-vine and peppers are available through December.
