Red Sun Farms adds avocado to product range

One of the biggest greenhouse growers in North America, Red Sun Farms, is expanding its produce family, with Golden Sun Avocados.

According to Red Sun Farms Chief Operations Officer Carlos Visconti, “Consumers and retailers alike already associate Red Sun Farms with the very best in tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. Now we have the opportunity to provide them with the highest quality Mexican avocados, produced using the best practices as perfected from years of experience.”

The avocados will be produced in Mexico, and distributed through the Red Sun Farms supply chain to service customers throughout North America.

“The avocado market is absolutely booming, and it only makes sense that we would become a part of that,” says Visconti, “We are confident that this new commodity will be a complimentary addition to our existing product catalogue.”

Production of the avocados is scheduled to begin second quarter of 2018.
