The year began with Organics Unlimited celebrating its 15th year of business as well as being named one of San Diego’s Most Admired Companies by San Diego Metro Magazine.
In February, produce companies nationwide faced a challenge during the West Coast port dispute. Dozens of cargo ships were anchored just off the coasts of Los Angeles and Long Beach, waiting their turn to be unloaded while their perishable goods spoiled. Thankfully, Organics Unlimited ships the majority of its fruit by truck from Mexico to San Diego, so our logistics chain was less compromised than others and we lost less product.
Organics Unlimited aims for continued quality, sustainability and growth. To answer these commitments and keep increasing our product yield, Organics Unlimited hired a new engineer in 2015 to help oversee the growing and production processes.
GROW celebrated a milestone year in 2015, noting a decade of giving back to Mexican and Ecuadorian communities through the program. More than $2 million in aid (and counting!) has been donated thanks to your continued purchases of GROW organic bananas. GROW marked its 10th anniversary with a new, limited-edition label and a special initiative in September called GROW Month.
