Duda Farm Fresh Foods showcases line of Fresh from Florida items at Southern Exposure

A loyal devotee to the Southeast Produce Council, Oviedo, FL-based Duda Farm Fresh Foods has been a member and participant since its founding. And it has exhibited every year at the Southern Exposure event since its first expo in 2004.

This year, the company will exhibit at booth No. 418 at the event on Feb. 27-29 in Tampa, FL.

Tray-Pack-Corn Duda Farm Fresh Foods will be represented by an impressive group of team members. On hand to meet with customers will be Director of Regional Sales Tim Ross; Regional Sales Managers Russell Dollar and Bob Sloate; Senior Account Manager Chris Betts; Assistant Sales Manager John Alderman; Account Managers Paul Miller and Bert Barnes; and Vice President of Global Business Alberto Cuellar.

Senior Director of Marketing at Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Nichole Towell, said along with its popular products, the company will feature its Value Added Tray Pack Sweet Corn at the event.

“The corn is packed fresh to order in a variety of options using the category’s first 100-percent recyclable tray,” said Towell. “The corn is pre-shucked and ready to cook, giving consumers a convenience item that sells well in the store.

“Additionally, Duda Farm Fresh Foods will showcase a number of Fresh from Florida items, including its popular Dandy brand of fresh celery, celery hearts, iceberg lettuce and other leafy greens like romaine, romaine hearts and green and red leaf lettuces,” she continued. “We will also feature our Florida citrus line which includes grapefruit, oranges and tangerines.”

Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Towell pointed out, is looking forward to the Florida summer corn season which begins in early April. That will be followed by a good spring and summer export citrus deal starting in mid-May.

The company, Towell noted, is participating in the Southern Exposure event as a Gold Level Event Sponsor.

“This is the premier southeast show,” she said. “It offers great exposure and interaction with top-tier retailers and foodservice providers. Duda greatly enjoys the quality facetime that is not necessarily found at other shows.”
