As week one tour comes to a close, I am truly impressed by the amount of great conversations I have had with consumers. As the message of the Greenhouse Education Center is to inform consumers on NatureFresh’s growing methods, people were in awe by the setup and appearance of greenhouse growing.
So what does “local” mean to you? The importance of locally grown produce is vital to me and is also one of the core values that NatureFresh represents. As we visited the Toronto area, we were spreading the message of eating fresh and local. Being less than four hours from Toronto, there is substantially less food miles that our product has to take, thus our product is fresher and tastier than others. Being on our trailer, great questions came from those we talked to. One of the most asked questions was “how fresh is your product”? We are proud to grow, package, and transport the product we provide. By cutting out the number of added steps that increases time, we can have product on store shelves within 24 to 48 hours of us harvesting the produce.
As we grow in the new Delta, Ohio facility, our Ohio Red tomatoes will represent our dedication to producing consistent produce year round that tastes delightful, especially to our U.S. consumers. We believe in the future of #fresh. Being part of the #GreenInTheCity tour, I have the ability to connect with many types of people and hear their story. It in turn, helps us at NatureFresh provide quality product for others. So as you continue with your day, ask yourself what your definition of “local” is and share it with me. I’d love to connect with you and hear your story.
