The Nogales-based Vision Produce Company has revealed that it is adding another item to its extensive list of 'grower direct' deals with an exclusive shade house cucumber programme, starting Mid-April, out of Caborca, Mexico.
In collaboration with the Agricola Los Chacuales partner of growers, the La Visiõn label will accompany the programme, which will be available from the second week of April through June.
This is the second item that Vision has developed in the Corborca growing region by partnering with Agricola Los Chacuales.
"We are excited to develop another partnership in Caborca with Agricola La Chacuales and continue our growth in the region," said John Caldwell, vice-president of sales for Arizona. "They are a socially responsible company that offers a safe work environment, competitive wages, supports non-profit endeavors and a family orientated culture. In addition, their operation is state of the art and maintains Primus Certification."
Ricardo Araiza, one of the Los Chacuales’ team members, added. “Vision Produce values results but also value the strong future potential in its partners. There is an investment in people that the company is devoted to and that we don’t come by every day. This is a stronger partnership due to their vision. We see this and reciprocate”.
In 2015, this new cucumber venture will enhance Vision Produce’s ability to add greater value to its US customers and attain future expansion in Mexico and the US.
