Generation Farms Expands Export to Serve Middle East Market
MIAMI, FL - Fresh produce knows no bounds, and the quality and taste we all know and love here in the States will now be experienced by those in the Middle East. Recently, Generation Farms announced it is expanding its export network, and its conventional and organic products will now be available to fresh food distributors in the United Arab Emirates.
“At Generation Farms, we are focused on growing fresh food with flexibility, and we are thrilled to help meet the growing demands for fresh produce, particularly in the Middle East, by establishing our export operations to Dubai,” said Gaston Marquevich, CEO, Generation Farms.
The grower will be delivering fresh onions to the UAE on a monthly basis. Generation Farms is also planning to include other fresh produce, including bell peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, squash, oranges, and garlic, as well. Several climate-controlled, 40-foot containers will be carrying the onions from farms in Vidalia, Georgia, by ship. The onions will be leaving from the Port of Savannah and arrive at the Port of Jebel Ali in Dubai.
Myrna Dotti, General Manager of Maximise Solutions—a UAE consulting company—and Middle East Sales Representative for Generation Farms, was instrumental in establishing this new export operation.
According to the company’s release, Generation Farms plans to grow its export operation and produce variety for the UAE alongside increasing demand for high-quality fresh food products. With this new expansion, the company now helps guarantee a quality supply of fresh food to the UAE market in the absence of favorable conditions for domestic food production.
Generation Farms grows, packs, and ships onions and other produce through its operations in and around Michigan, North Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, and Peru.
