Keystone Fruit Marketing Announces Availability of Mayan Sweets From Peru; Mike Blume and Matthew Gideon Share
GREENCASTLE, PA - For buyers looking to bolster the onion category as a whole, look no further, as an exciting opportunity to capitalize on the demand for delicious, high-quality sweet onions has arisen with Mayan Sweets from Peru. Keystone Fruit Marketing, a division of Progressive Produce, has provided valuable insight as we near the quickly approaching Peruvian sweet onion season.
"With worldwide inflation, the rising costs of transportation, and Peru facing labor challenges, it is no secret that this year has been—and will continue to be—a difficult one for imported sweet onions," said Mike Blume, Director of Sales and Marketing. "Our team, however, is ready to rise to the challenge, and with advanced notice, we can certainly cover your needs."
The Peruvian sweet onion is typically available from late July to early March, according to a press release, and Keystone expects to have supplies available from all of its warehouses during its usual sales season. This season, shoppers will be intrigued by the supplier's rich maroon and gold Mayan Sweets label, which was recently revamped to offer a refreshing new look.
"Mayan Sweets are one of the world's best known sweet onions. Put our beautiful onions at the front of your store; promote for the holidays and special events; and cross-promote with other items!" Sweet Onion Commodity Manager Matthew Gideon advises. "Provide information to your customers about what makes our Mayan Sweets so special… and remember: you can always reach out to us for help and/or materials!"
Keystone offers Peruvian Mayan Sweets in a 40 lb carton and a wide variety of consumer packs.
