Cal-Organic shipping a seasonal celery and limited-edition red-bunch carrots
Organic vegetable giant Cal-Organic Farms is now shipping organic red bunch carrots and celery from Coachella, California, according to a news release from the company.
A division of Grimmway Farms, Cal-Organic is offering its exclusive red bunch carrots for a limited time and supplies are expected to last through the Easter holiday. Additionally, they expect to ship seasonal celery through the end of February.
“Outstanding sweet flavor is what makes our red carrot variety truly unique,” Bob Borda, Vice President of Organic Sales at Grimmway Farms, said in a release. “These specialty carrots feature vibrant red color through the root and make for beautiful plate presentation.”
The company is offering California-grown organic red bunch carrots in 12 and 24-count cases with green tops intact.
Red carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A and contribute to a balanced diet, according to a news release from the company. Favored by shoppers for their colorful appearance, these ruby-colored roots are among the dozens of fresh carrot products available from Grimmway and Cal-Organic Farms.
“Celery quality looks great as well, with bright green color and firm, crisp texture,” added Borda. Cal-Organic offers their premium celery in 24, 30, 36, and 48-count cases with bib ties or packed in sleeves. They also sell two-count celery hearts packed in sleeves, available in 18-count cases. Low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals, celery is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin A and folate.
Cal-Organic’s seasonal red carrot and celery programs are integrated with their year-round vegetable program and Grimmway’s category-leading carrot business, combining quality and convenience for customers. Cal-Organic also offers robust merchandising support and custom recipe content to help promote seasonal and year-round items.
