Are you looking for new markets for your organic fruit and veggies?
Michael Chesley, Senior Produce Merchandiser from Sysco, food services
Sysco will provide a list of produce created by participating organic
farmers to restaurant chefs throughout
Sysco will not pick-up individual deliveries but pickup can be arranged
at central points throughout
Payment will be made by the corporate farmer (aka broker). Michael indicated that they are willing to accept any price, as he put it, “price is not an issue”!
If you are interested in participating in this market opportunity please email or call Vicki Morrone. I am interested in this opportunity for YOU. I am not the broker, just the person to compile the initial list for Sysco. I told Sysco I would not give out any farmer’s info until a farmer indicated their interest.
Please send me the following info if you want me to share it with Sysco. There is no commitment to putting your info on the list. As anyone knows mother nature is not 100% predictable.
Where you are located, contact #, what products you have to offer, when they will be available (apx). what volume you anticipate to have to sell.
Hope this may be helpful.
