GEM-Pack and Well-Pict Berries: building a fruit forward alliance
GEM-Pack is excited to welcome the Well-Pict team and its impactful brand into the company’s already dynamic assemblage. In 2020, Gem-Pack added Red Blossom Sales Inc. and Mainland Farms, Mexico to their partnership. The latest addition of Well-Pict Berries will strengthen Gem-Pack’s commitment to providing customers with an uninterrupted supply of the highest quality of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.
Tim Miyasaka founded Well-Pict Berries in 1972 with the determination to cultivate the world’s most perfect strawberries. He has since established Well-Pict as a berry industry leader based on the Well-Pict proprietary varieties that delight customers and consumers alike with their flavor, size and consistent quality. Tim’s investment and innovation in the berry industry has set him apart as a true berry visionary.
Gem-Pack is particularly excited to add Well-Pict’s berry engineering and science know-how to their established team of berry pros. “Well-Pict will give us greater depth and breadth in the industry, adding not just volume throughout the full berry patch and seasons, but also deepening a shared passion for berry innovation, along with an unprecedented team of expertise in berry science” said Paul Kawamura, CMO of Gem-Pack Berries.
GEM-Pack is part of a consortium in the berry category establishing a pathway to develop proprietary varieties throughout several growing regions. As part of their commitment to sustainability,
GEM-Pack continues to develop their patented “Earth Made” project focused on 100 percent sustainable and organic growing practices and technologies. Well-Pict’s commitment to berry science and innovation is clearly a natural fit with Gem-Pack. Best stated by Dan Crowley, vice president of sales & marketing at Well-Pict: “We look forward to building on layers of ingenuity and expertise in the field and office, generating far-reaching benefits for our customers and the berry industry.”
