The organic producer-shipper reflects on its evolution as the Orlando show approaches


Bridges Produce looks forward to the return of IFPA this year to Orlando, Florida. It has been exhibiting at the PMA Fresh Summit, now IFPA Global Produce & Floral Show, since 2009. During this time, the company and the industry as a whole have gone through many transformations and advancements in food safety protocols, technology, durability and product varieties.

Organic industry
Bridges Produce was founded and built on the mission of organic advancement and promotion of organic farms and organic products. While organic was still a niche market when it was created in 2002, browsing through the upcoming IFPA show, it will be clear that this is no longer the case. It will be wonderful to see organic highlighted by many exhibitors at the show, as it is now a key part of grocery stores across the country, from large retail chains and warehouses to small co-ops and services. food.

Bridges is focused on providing a comprehensive organic program featuring both domestic and imported produce, all of which will be on display at Bridges booth 4442. A host of fall offerings including apples, pears, potatoes earth, onions, hard squash and cranberries, all of which are available now. The timing of the show also falls during the ramping up of the company’s Mexican row crop season, which mostly runs from late September to early June. This program includes products from four partner growers that are packaged under the Rico Farms and Aztlan labels. The Mexican season is characterized by a strong supply of summer and winter squash, cucumbers, eggplant, chilies and peppers, as well as a shorter green bean season and a spring melon harvest.

Bridges will have five team members attending the show. These individuals specialize in a variety of products including blueberries, apples and pears from North and South America and Mexican row crops.

Additionally, a number of Bridges producer partners from the United States, Argentina and Mexico will also be present. By coming to the show, they can see what’s current and coming up in the industry as well as visit customers and deepen that connection between product origins and buyer.

Bridges is looking forward to attending the show due to the size and diversity of the event as well as the opportunity to connect with suppliers and customers. There are individuals and companies he only sees in person at this show, and since it cannot take place in 2020 and 2021, this year’s show will be like a meeting bringing the industry together.
