WP Rawl ships Mississippi sweet corn, adds new hire


Pelion, S.C.-based WP Rawl started shipping Mississippi corn in June, two months after Sarah Farra joined the company as executive assistant.

WP Rawl acquired Mississippi Sweet Corn Producers Inc. Dec. 31, more than doubling its sweet corn volume. The company plans to market bulk and club packs of yellow, white and bicolor corn from the state, according to a January announcement, under the Mississippi Sweet Corn Producers’ Delta Harvest label.

Farra, who is working in marketing, customer service and project management for the company, comes to the produce industry from the hotel and foodservice industry. She was involved in event planning, community relations and new business development, according to a news release.

The company also debuted a new logo at the beginning of July.
