Westlake, FL: J&J Family of Farms is pleased to announce their expansion into the organic produce space with Farmganic™.
The new organic line, Farmganic™ initially includes certified organic green peppers, yellow squash, zucchini and cucumbers.
“This is just the beginning for J&J, as we plan on expanding our organic product offerings by developing our own organic production and expanding our grower network to provide organic produce on a year-round basis,” said Lynn Rundle, Chairman and CEO.
“Of the consumers who purchase organic food, 35% make their purchases from the produce department. When it comes to food choices and consumer trends, it’s always all about produce,” he added. “We look forward to meeting our customer’s needs with Farmganic™ and will continue to provide products that exceed expectations.”
J&J’s headquarters in Westlake, Florida was the first of their multiple locations to obtain organic certification by Quality Certification Services (QCS). Their organic rollout includes obtaining certification at each of their primary shipping points.
“We are excited about our organic produce, which is grown by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality and sustainability for future generations,” added Bob Ziel, Director of Food Safety & Social Responsibility at J&J.
