Importer-distributor Giumarra has announced that it will be working with Colombian group Bengala Agrícola to offer a 12-month supply of premium-quality golden pineapple grown in the Valle de Cauca region of the country.
According to Giumarra, the First shipments will arrive on 4 September, with fruit hitting the East Coast via the ports of New York and Philadelphia, and on the West Coast via the Port of Long Beach.
“Our grower Bengala is offering the only certified Costa Rican MD2 golden pineapple seed planted in Colombia,” said Tom Richardson, vice-president of global development for Giumarra. “Our customers can trust the quality will be excellent and deliver a superior eating experience to consumers.”
“Giumarra Wenatchee is excited to offer this specialty, high-value item to our North American customers every week throughout the year,” noted Jason Bushong, division manager. “Valle de Cauca’s lower rainfall rate results in consistent pineapple availability year-round.”
