Importer-distributor Giumarra has announced it will be working with family-owned Glacier Fresh to market the orchard’s Montana-grown cherry harvest this summer.
“We are excited to partner with a like-minded company to expand our premium cherry category,” said Craig Uchizono, vice-president Southern Hemisphere of the Giumarra Companies.
Harvest will begin in late July, with both Rainiers and Dark Red varieties available. The cherries will be available bulk or packaged in Glacier Fresh-branded pouch bags.
“We are excited to see our cherries coming to US stores this summer, as most consumers don’t know we grow such incredible fruit right here in Montana,” said Dusti Herring, co-owner of Glacier Fresh. “We are very proud of our fresh cherry varieties and look forward to working with Giumarra to place them in stores both in our local area and across the country.”
