ANAHEIM, Calif. â Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce, San Diego, showed off its new Limited Edition line of resealable pouches of grape tomatoes and cherry tomatoes Oct. 3 at the Produce Marketing Association's Fresh Summit.
The pouches come in three sizes, a 7-ounce snack pouch, a one-pound pouch and a two-pound pouch for club stores, said Mark Munger, vice president of marketing. The tomatoes will be available year-round.
The tomatoes are conventionally grown, but the company plans to add pouches of organic tomatoes soon, Munger said.
The pouches require 60% less material to manufacture than do comparable sized clamshells, he said.
