Brian Scattini Discusses Ocean Mist® Farms' Green Onion Category Value and Solutions
CASTROVILLE, CA - Green onions bring a trifecta of value to the produce department. While one could easily argue that they bring more, it's easy to see that versatility, flavor, and vibrancy top the list—inspiring the call of retail and foodservice partners everywhere. Responding to that call is Ocean Mist® Farms, offering its commitment to excellence in the category for the buy-side far and wide.
“Our green onions are grown in Baja and shipped from our Castroville, California, facility currently,” Brian Scattini, Commodity Account Manager, shares. “Once the desert season is fully underway, we’ll be shipping everything from our Coachella facility in Southern California. We have a steady supply scheduled and are on target to fulfill all of our orders and meet all of our commitments—including promotional volumes—through the holiday season and into the new year.”
Expectations and delivery are everything, and so valued customers have come to deeply rely on Ocean Mist Farms and its premium green onion varieties for both the exceptional quality and the team’s excellent customer service and care. Ocean Mist green onions are hand-harvested, carefully bunched, gently packed, and transported to a cool environment within four hours of harvesting—making for a quick trip through the first part of the crucial supply chain.
“Our Baja team produces remarkable quality products, and the fields are kept in pristine condition,” Brian continues. “As an organization, we have always been more focused on quality than volume of our fresh vegetable products, and with each green onion harvest, it’s apparent. Needless to say, the quality of the holiday harvest is looking very good.”
Ocean Mist Farms offers green onions in a variety of iced and iceless pack sizes from retail to foodservice packs including 4 x 12 counts, 2 x 24 counts, and 24 x 5.5 oz bags.
Ocean Mist knows that cooking with fresh green onions brings flavor and texture to dishes, with multiple applications. Bright green and mild in flavor, green onions appeal to a wide spectrum of palates, making them a vital ingredient in the kitchen this holiday season and beyond.
