In this episode of The Produce Industry Podcast w/ Patrick Kelly we talk with our Fancy Sponsor Yolanda Ramirez, Vice President of Retail Sales and Brian Framson, President and Jay Gardner, Vice President of Sales of Citrus America, Inc. Yolanda and I have started a 3-part series that stars today about purchasing in the produce industry using data and insights. The first part of this series will be corporate buying, in May we will talk about supplemental purchasing using data/insights, and in June we talk about monitoring external factors in purchasing.
Next we chat with our featured guests Brian Framson and Jay Gardner of Citrus America. I visited their facility in Oviedo, FL and had a day full of juicing oranges, pomegranates, blood oranges and grapefruit. We talk about the decade of Citrus America being in the United States and the concept of bringing these machines from Vienna. We squeezed fruit and talked about it!! What about Mimosa’s and other drinks that could be mixed with citrus fruits? It’s all about the experience!!!
