D'Arrigo California introduces baby gem lettuce

D'Arrigo California unveiled its baby gem lettuce, a premium offering under the esteemed Andy Boy label. The new item is now shipping in two-, three- and 42-count liner pack sizes.

“This new addition to our product lineup reinforces our dedication to providing innovative, high-quality products. The baby gem line has been developed to be a solution for both our retail and foodservice sectors,” said John D'Arrigo, president, CEO and chairman of the board.

The company said its dedication to delivering consistent quality and timely shipments guarantees businesses a steadfast source of premium, high-quality baby gem lettuce.

Renowned for its unparalleled quality, positive safety track record and decades of devotion to good manufacturing practices, D'Arrigo California continues to set the standard for excellence in fresh produce. This commitment to excellence ensures that customers can trust in the consistency and quality of the Andy Boy baby gem lettuce program, further establishing D'Arrigo California as a leading grower of fresh produce.

"In a dynamic industry, our focus is on consistency and reliability," said D'Arrigo. "In alignment with the other Andy Boy programs we offer, baby gem lettuce provides businesses a continuous supply of fresh produce with consistent quality, timely deliveries and the ability to meet demand. We are excited to enter a new segment, allowing us to introduce our Andy Boy baby gem to both existing and new consumers.”

Understanding the unique demands of both retail and foodservice industries, D'Arrigo California has meticulously positioned baby gem lettuce to cater to diverse culinary needs. Its year-round availability guarantees that businesses can confidently plan menus and meet consumer demands without interruption.

Through seed development, this item seamlessly blends the ideal attributes of both rRomaine and butter lettuces, presenting the perfect combination of a dense and crunchy texture with a sweet and buttery taste. Today, baby gem has earned its place in a distinct product category, making it a complement to romaine and butter, rather than a replacement.

Distinguished by its compact size and sweet taste, baby gem lettuce is a versatile ingredient suitable for a variety of culinary creations. D'Arrigo California has conducted extensive research and gathered feedback from culinary experts and home chefs, highlighting the remarkable versatility of baby gems. Make them into a wedge, grill them to perfection, or finely chop them up into a salad or slaw. The leaves are perfectly sized, ideal for topping burgers and sandwiches or creating lettuce boats.
