"New plants inferior and we have to find other supplier"
US: Backyard Farms won’t be able to ship tomatoes until January
This is the second setback for the Maine company this Summer, which in July had to destroy its entire crop of 420,000 tomato plants due to an infestation of white flies. The tomatoes are sold by about 30 retailers across New England, including Hannaford, Roche Bros., Shaw’s, Walmart, and Whole Foods.
Backyard Farms had planned to start shipping fruit in October, but on Friday said the new plants were inferior and the grower would need to find another supplier.
“They don’t meet our high quality standards that we have,” said Backyard Farms spokesman Michael Aalto. “We are rejecting the plants.”
