Produce Family Launches New Website to Define Allied Services
By Grocery Headquarters Staff
Sister companies Fruit Dynamics and Gaarde Foodsource have recently redesigned and launched their company websites to promote and clarify their company services that include raw product sourcing for processing and applied R&D for the fruit and vegetable industry. Together Gaarde Foodsource and Fruit Dynamics offer interconnected allied services that help bridge the gap between product sourcing and finished end-user products, company officials say. In business for nearly 20 years, Gaarde Foodsource considers itself a leader in raw product procurement and sourcing for processors through the United States and Canada. While Gaarde Foodsource starts at the field level by identifying varieties for sourcing, Fruit Dynamics provides applied science with lab-based research on fruit quality analysis and evaluation including new product development, packaging testing, and post-harvest research, officials add. The new website shares information about the company and showcases case studies that highlight the practical nature of the businesses and how appropriate varietal sourcing and applied R&D can drive ROI for companies looking to improve their products or bottom line, they say. “We are both passionate, individually and through our companies, about developing applied knowledge and excellence in plant breeding, fruit production and food processing that will ultimately enhance the end-user and consumer experience,” says Kim Gaarde, president of Fruit Dynamics.
