Sammy Duda of Duda Farm Fresh Foods Discusses Crunchable Snacks
OVIEDO, FL – Duda Farm Fresh Foods is enjoying positive feedback since the launch of its new snacking line in January. Sammy Duda, the company’s Vice President of Western Operations, took the time to tell me a bit more about the company’s moves to grow in the snacking category.
“There is a wide variety of what we are introducing, which goes right into the snacking category, which is the fastest growing category in the produce section,” Sammy tells me.
The line includes both packs and cups of celery, with various dip options like peanut butter and ranch.
“We think it highlights our proprietary varieties,” Sammy says of the new line, including the sweetness and crunch of its celery with less stringiness.
Duda is also offering Grab and Go Citrines®, further pushing its presence in snacking for fresh produce. “We are trying to fulfill that segment, and we’re excited about what we have to offer.”
Sammy adds that, while these products have not yet been launched in Canada, the company has been assessing the interest and received positive feedback, as well as being widely well received in the U.S.
