As we close out our Georgia-grown Vidalia® sweet onion season, we are in full swing with our Peruvian sweets. We are currently shipping our Bland Farms Premium Sweet Onions from Peru, and the crop looks great!
Our Peru crop is the same identical variety as our domestic Vidalia. Our agronomy staff has worked tirelessly over many years to cultivate this sweet onion in Peru allowing us to never miss a beat–so we can get the same wonderful sweet onion to our retailers every day of the year.
We have had great success meeting demand all summer long. As we close out our 2019 Vidalia® Onion season, Bland Farms still has a limited supply of our highest-quality Georgia-grown Vidalia® Sweet Onions available for order. Volumes are projected to last through your Labor Day promotions, but sales of this signature summer gem are still on a roll, so act fast!
Shoppers have come to associate real Georgia Vidalias as one of the highlights of their summer season. Meet shoppers’ increasing demands for domestically grown produce, and extend the limited-time, peak-season product messaging with our secondary Bland Farms display merchandisers.
Don’t miss your chance to stock up on these seasonal gems – they’re movin’ fast!
At this point in the season, and to ensure maximum sweetness, we have moved our harvest into our controlled-atmosphere storage rooms. Bland made fresh preservation technology a priority, and now has the largest controlled-environment storage capacity in the industry. These rooms extend the availability of Vidalia® sweet onions from two months to four months.
On May 15th, Bland Farms was honored to be one of a few selected hosts for the 2019 Georgia Grown Farm Tour. Georgia Grown, the marketing and economic development program of the Georgia Department of Agriculture, hosted international and national media guests, grocery buyer executives, state officials and culinary experts on this first-ever, invitation-only culinary tour of Southern and Coastal Georgia.
Introducing our high-impact merchandiser, made compact for any produce department. Designed to communicate the authentic Vidalia Brands® story that shoppers have come to know and trust.
We are projecting to start shipments of our Georgia sweet onions around April 8th. Good weather conditions over the month of March has helped this crop progress and mature nicely. “It couldn’t come at a better time since the overall onion market is strong and in short supplies.” according to Jeff Rhoden.
Bland Farms® is introducing a refreshed package design for its flagship Vidalia® onion product. The clean, easy-to-read label pays tribute to the heritage of the Bland family farming tradition.
