LOS ANGELES – May 24, 2016 – The Giumarra Companies is pleased to announce its Los Angeles wholesale operation, Giumarra Bros. Fruit Co., recently added Certified Organic vegetables to its product line. The new organic line includes lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, celery, cauliflower, beets, chard, and kale, along with a variety of specialty vegetables, greens, and herbs.

“The demand for organic produce is rising globally,” says Chuck Anunciation, division manager for Giumarra Bros. Fruit Co. “We feel it is important to continue serving our customers’ growing needs with a broad organic offering.”

Mr. Anunciation and his team bring more than 25 years of organic buying expertise to Giumarra Bros. Fruit Co. The new category is USDA Certified Organic, California-grown, and will be available year round.

“We have seen double digit growth in our wholesale organic category,” says Kellee Harris, Western region business manager. “Our new vegetable offering will nicely complement our organic fruit offering, as well as our conventional produce.”

Giumarra recently revamped its warehouse facility to accommodate the growth resulting from the new category.

The company will be showcasing its organic vegetables this summer at the Los Angeles Wholesale Market during planned demos designed to promote the vegetables at both retail and foodservice levels.
