Greetings from Nogales! We hope you had a very good Thanksgiving Holiday! Here at Malena we have a lot of be thankful for this year, chief of which are our loyal customers and sales team.
Last month we had the pleasure of hosting more than a dozen retail visitors to our offices during the annual Nogales Produce Convention. They toured our new warehouse facilities and even “sampled” from our special “Welcome” display [pictured above]. Thank you for taking the time to visit us during this busy event!
This month, we are excited about our first year as exhibitors at the New York Produce Show sponsored by Produce Business. (http://newyorkproduceshow.com) This annual event has grown steadily, and we look forward to meeting current and potential customers in what is the #1 region for eggplant sales in the country.
Also this month, we begin shipments of our premier”blocky”, shade-house grown peppers as well as our popular red, elongated bells. Our pepper production this year is up more than 20% and, with shipments from both Nogales and McAllen, can ensure receiving in fast, optimum condition.
Be sure to check out our CROP COUNTDOWN advisory on our Home Page for our latest shipments.
