Giumarra has announced that sweet onions are the newest addition to its global product line, after the company recently entered into an agreement with G&R Farms of Glenville, Georgia to help market G&R’s onion crop.
G&R Farms is known primarily as a premier Vidalia onion grower, but also offers a vertically-integrated supply of sweet onions grown in Peru, Mexico, and Texas.
“I was aware of Giumarra as a family-owned company with values similar to ours,” said Walt Dasher, co-owner of G&R Farms. “Once we met in person and shared our marketing goals and ideas, we found that there was a lot of common ground and it would be beneficial to partner. We hold their size and capabilities in high esteem.”
“We greatly respect the excellent reputation for quality and heritage the Dasher family has established under G&R Farms,” noted John Reese Franklin, sales and operations manager of Giumarra Southeast. “We look forward to servicing our retail and foodservice customers with ample supplies of sweet onions.”
