NatureFresh Introduces New Sustainability Initiatives and Team Member

Leamington, ON  – NatureFresh™ Farms is leading the way in the farming industry by expanding their facilities, providing year-round Ontario grown produce and introducing their new sustainable practices along with their most recent addition to the NatureFresh™ Farms team.

On April 3rd to 4th, NatureFresh™ Farms will be sharing their achievements in sustainable development by featuring their new eco-friendly compostable tray at this year’s Canadian Produce Marketing Association convention & tradeshow. Sustainability is a topic that has continued to be a focus of the company since the beginning and has seen an increased amount of interest throughout the industry. NatureFresh™ Farms maintains sustainability as a priority by continuously working with suppliers to develop new technology in their greenhouse operations and packaging. By launching this new compostable packaging for both their conventional and Organic Mini Cucumbers, attendees will get an opportunity to see the tray while learning more about of the role of sustainability within the produce industry.

In addition to their compostable tray, their greenhouse expansion will also assist in meeting their sustainability initiatives by reducing food miles with more locally-grown produce in their greenhouses. The expansion has been a large project that will be occurring over the coming months and once complete will increase their production and efficiency in the growing process, while consistently providing high-quality products, giving Canadian consumers a greater opportunity to purchase locally-grown produce throughout the year. The new facility will grow more Tomato assortments, with supplemental lighting assisting in year-round production.

NatureFresh™ Farms is also thrilled to announce the expansion of their team with Retail Sales Account Manager, Conor Chilvers. Conor joined the company early this March and will be accompanying them at the convention this spring. “I am excited for my first show as part of the NatureFresh™ Farms team,” shared Conor. “I’m really looking forward to introducing my customers to the brand and telling the NatureFresh™ story”.

Executive Retail Sales Account Manager; Paul Schockman, also shared his excitement for the upcoming show and the arrival of Conor. “We are very pleased to welcome Conor to our team, having multiple years of experience in the produce industry, he will be a great asset in supporting our rapid growth and servicing our customers in the best way possible,” said Paul. “NatureFresh™ Farms has a lot of exciting things occurring this year with our sustainable initiatives, the expansion of our facilities and the growth of the team, which we are eager to share at the convention, along with showcasing our new products and packaging alternatives.”

With 20 years of providing quality greenhouse grown vegetables all year-round, NatureFresh™ Farms looks forward to the future with their continued advancements in sustainable technology and product innovation.
