Double Date delivers on consistency

By
Adam Campbell, digital publisher

When Steven Gilfenbain, CEO of Double Date Packing decided to open his own date packing operation it was with one singular goal: delivering a better eating experience to the consumer. Rather than bringing his dates to another packing house, where he had no control over how his date would be handled and delivered, Gilfenbain launched Double Date.

Antiwicking protective bags
like these ​​​​are used to cover
the fruit bunch, they repel
insects and keep moisture
away from the dates.

The antiwicking protective bags are
opened, the remaining ripe fruit bunch
is lightly shaken allowing the fruit to
drop into the tray and then the bags
are removed and brought back to
Double Date’s facility to be stored,
washed and dried for the 2023 crop.

“Double Date is the grower, packer and shipper,” explained Hope Barbee, vice president-sales for Double Date. “We do not handle or purchase fruit.” The company’s vertical alignment allows them to deliver, “Because of our vertical alignment our fruit is more consistent, uniform and of a higher quality level since our people are tending to the palm trees, growing and harvesting the fruit.”

“Consistency is what it’s all about,” stated Gilfenbain. “You see Double Date, you know you are getting a superior product.”
