Adding to the excitement of the season, Fruit World also announced their recent EFI certification from their Reedley facility.
The announcement of EFI’s certification resonated throughout the Fruit World community, from growers and farmworkers to their valued customers.
It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all involved.
Bianca Kaprielian, the Founder and CEO of Fruit World, said, “This certification marks a great achievement.
“We take our mission to create a fair and sustainable food system at heart, and this success shows that our actions match our words,” he said.
“California’s citrus season is coming trendily late in the year, starting two to three weeks later than usual, but the delay is building anticipation for a spectacular showcase.”
The season begins with the highly anticipated organic lemon program, a year-round favorite featuring the freshest fruit from the desert region.
Sweet limes have also made their grand entrance, while grapefruit will soon join the winter citrus ensemble at the end of the month.
November heralds the arrival of Navels and mandarins, with Minneolas, Cara Cara, and Blood Oranges all shipped in December.
This November, Kaprielian will join industry experts on a panel during the Organic Grower Summit, discussing the upcoming Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) rule and ways the grower community can prepare for these changes.
“The updates to the regulations of the USDA National Organic Program are important. The intention to reduce organic fraud is appreciated; at the same time, we see the challenges it will present to growers, buyers, and sellers of organic products, ” said Kaprielian.
