Asparagus Business Updates
Altar Produce moves toward organic product
Calexico, Calif.-based Altar Produce LLC is getting closer to organic asparagus production, said Don Alford, sales manager.
“There”s more people out there asking for organic than they are asking for the (purple and white varieties), as far as we”re concerned,” he said.
Altar currently has acreage in transition from conventional to organic production, Alford said.
“We have acreage planted and it will be about a year away from having it in production,” he said, declining to disclose the number of acres.
