SOLEDAD, Calif. – July 7, 2023 –
Braga Fresh is a sponsor of the 2023 Organic Produce Summit in Monterey where the company will debut five SKUs under the Josie’s Organics brand in booth #607 at the summit exhibition on July 13.
“This year our intention for the Organic Product Summit is to showcase our organic farming with field tours and product innovation with two category product launches” said Kori Tuggle, vice president marketing and product development.
On July 12 the company will host a field tour at the Braga Home ranch. The tour will travel through the Salinas Valley to the home of Josie’s Organics in Soledad where attendees will learn about the company’s regenerative agriculture trials and soil health as well as see a tillage demonstration and learn about the latest in ag technology with a robotic broccoli harvest demo powered by artificial intelligence.
On July 13 at the summit exhibition, the company will introduce five SKUs including two chopped salad kits, Avocado Goddess Chop Salad Kit and Aloha BBQ Chop Salad Kit, and three organic Farmer’s Market Favorites salad blends: Organic Heirloom Crisp, Organic Bistro Duo and Organic Sweet Red Butter.
The Aloha BBQ chopped salad kit has the familiar flavors of a Hawaiian barbecue with tangy sweet pineapple bits and vegan coconut bacon. Braga Fresh is the first company to offer this vegan salad kit ingredient that was inspired by food influencers.
The Avocado Goddess chopped salad kit contains fresh herb notes with a creamy avocado dressing, crunchy flatbread strips and a zingy goddess seasoning packet that is the key to the overall eating experience, Tuggle said. Both chopped salad kits are vegan, certified organic and contain clean salad dressing and component ingredients.
“The Farmer’s Market Favorites is a line extension for Josie’s Organics salad blends,” Tuggle said. “These three new SKUs offer unique leafy greens varietals, for organic shoppers seeking something different with flavor, loft and texture for at home salad making.”
