Organic Alliance Signs $5.3M Produce Supply Contract
Organic Alliance, a global grower and marketer of fresh, organic and Fair Trade fruits and vegetables, signed an organic produce supply contract that it expects will generate $5.3 million to $6 million in sales revenue.
The contract is with a Northern Mexico-based, family-owned grower of certified organic produce with more than 10 years of experience growing produce for the U.S.
Under the contract terms, the grower will supply Organic Alliance with a specified weekly volume of certified organic green beans, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, and roma tomatoes.
“Organic Alliance is now beginning to capitalize on the grower relationships it has carefully cultivated in Mexico, Central and South America over the past two years,” said Parker Booth, Organic Alliance CEO. Booth further indicated the company’s intentions to sign more contracts for its winter/fall program.
Under the contract, the company will market and distribute the produce to its U.S. supermarket and specialty grocer customers, packed in “Organic Alliance” branded cartons.
Harvesting, packing and shipping are expected to begin in November and run through April 2013.
The name of the grower is not disclosed for competitive reasons.
