Morning Kiss Organic welcomes imported pear season
Morning Kiss Organic is kicking off imported pear season, working with partners in Argentina to provide the highest quality fruit. Import season runs from March thru June, and seasonal varieties include Packham, D’Anjou and Bartlett.
Currently, Morning Kiss is sourcing Bartlett pears from Argentina, a country that meets the highest food-safety standards and also social compliance standards. Social compliance standards ensure that grower partners go above and beyond the organic standards in taking care of their communities and the environment.
"We are looking forward to pear season and partnering with Argentine growers," said Nelly Czajkowski of Morning Kiss Organic. "Pears are popular among all demographics, and we expect good volume this season with plenty of opportunities for promotions for our retail partners."
Morning Kiss Organic is offering a two-pound pear bag — packed as a 12/two-pound or 18/two-pound — that is perfect for families and provides value with a less expensive price per piece. Pears are also available in full size cartons or half cartons, with the option to have an organic band around each piece of fruit to ensure retailers get the organic sale at check out. Private label options are available.
Pears are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C and antioxidants. They make a perfect lunchbox snack, or a sweet addition to salads and desserts. Pears are ripe when they smell fragrant and are soft to the touch near the stem.
As with all of its offerings, organic pears will be packed fresh to order. Morning Kiss Organic employs just-in-time inventory management, reducing loss to product spoilage at retail, and therefore protecting the retailer's bottom line.
