On trend fresh vegetables to join existing family of products for foodservice

SALINAS, Calif. – July 15, 2019 – Church Brothers Farms is introducing three on-trend products, Sweet Baby Broccoli, Tuscan Baby Romaine and Sandwich Ready Leaves, at the 2019 PMA Foodservice Expo in booth 100.

Sweet Baby Broccoli is a new vegetable we are now growing for our foodservice customers with the Growers Express commodity farming program we acquired earlier this year,” said Kori Tuggle, vice president marketing/product development.

Available in a 10-pound loose field pack, the sweet flavor and tender stalks makes it a trending item for menus.

“It is a great addition to our offerings for our foodservice customers who are looking to load as many fresh produce ingredients in one stop as possible,” Tuggle said.

Tuscan Baby Romaine is another on trend item the company is debuting at PMA Foodservice.

“This version of Romaine offers a creative, healthy serving vehicle; think boats and tacos,” Tuggle said. “The shorter leaves create multiple ways to use across menu applications.”

Sandwich Ready Leaves are a hybrid green leaf with Romaine and Iceberg properties; the leaves are triple washed and ready to use with 100 percent yield and zero waste.

“Our Sandwich Ready Leaves were developed to frame a burger bun or sandwich with just the right amount of green frill and sweet flavor,” Tuggle said.

The new vegetables will be on display as part of the Fresh Ideas Showcase, July 26 and 27, at the Foodservice Conference. In addition, the company is hosting a Bocce Ball Tournament on July 24, students from the PMA Center for Growing Talent and co-sponsoring PMA’s main speaker, Ted Allen (host of Chopped) on Friday at 11 a.m. On Friday, July 26, customers and special guests will be hosted at the Church family annual ranch party at Tom Church’s ranch.

“We plan for the foodservice show all year,” Tuggle said. “We love having guests visit our ranches and salad plant to see first-hand the hard work and quality we put into every product year-round.”
