In an economy where produce companies are closing on a regular basis, a new produce company has just opened its doors in the Nogales, Ariz., area.
JBM Produce opened Oct. 30. The company is owned by Eduardo and Jose Luis Bedolla, who own a local farm where they grow hot peppers, mainly chili peppers. According to the companyâs sales manager, the company intends to sell the peppers to brokers and wholesale distributors throughout the U.S.
âWeâre going to sell all over,â said Rene Rodriguez, who worked for 18 years as a buyer/broker for Calixtro Distributing Co., Rio Rico, Ariz. âWeâll sell to anyone who wants to buy.â
