Trying to build on its base of fresh produce customers at the All Things Organic Conference & Trade Show June 17-18 in Chicago, Organic National & International Certifiers, Lincolnwood, Ill., was pleased to announce it has already developed a fairly sizeable client list.

“We’ve gotten some good word of mouth from our fresh produce companies like Pasco Onions (began second year with ON&IC in April), Anthony Marano Co. (started in March) and Del Monte Fresh Produce of Canton, Mass., and Kankakee, Ill. (began in December and February),” said Pearl Siegel, ON&IC marketing director.

“In fact, Atom Banana, a Chicago company, just signed up with us in January, at the bequest of Whole Foods,” Siegel said.
