“Duda Farm Fresh Foods has exhibited at the New York Produce Show & Conference since its inception two years ago, and this will be our third,” said Nichole Towell, marketing director for the Oviedo, FL-based company.

“Each year the show proves to be an even bigger success in terms of the foot traffic and types of people visiting. And each year we look forward to meeting with our existing customers in the Northeast and meeting new faces to formulate long lasting relationships,” she said.

Duda Farm Fresh Foods will be exhibiting at booth No. 332 at the show. Ms. Towell added that as far as the company is concerned, the timing of this year’s show, in early December, is great.

“Our team couldn’t be more excited about going to New York in December when the city is decorated for the holiday season,” she said.

“At the show, we will continue to build momentum surrounding our newest product launch, ‘Celery Celebrations,’ “ she continued. “New York Produce Show attendees are invited to visit our booth to see our new line of seasonal packaging as well as our other popular winter products. From Meyer lemons to clementines, and our new celery, Duda Farm Fresh Foods has flavor and convenience covered this holiday season.”

In July, Duda Farm Fresh Foods announced that Susan Noritake joined the Duda team as the director of fresh-cut sales. The company’s fresh-cut division of value-added products is growing and has become an increasingly important segment for the company’s retail and foodservice clients,, Ms. Towell said.

“As the director of fresh-cut sales, Susan will be responsible for leading the entire sales division,” Ms. Towell added. “She will be taking the lead on developing sales programs and promotions, maintaining strong relationships with key customers, building new accounts and enhancing the overall performance of the fresh-cut sales team through improved sales processes and professional development.”

Today, after 86 years, Duda Farm Fresh Foods continues its vision to provide freshness, flavor and quality products at an affordable price.

“This is still our primary goal,” said Ms. Towell. “Andrew Duda’s vision has been passed down to five generations of family members who strive for excellence and continue to keep the family’s farming business running strong. Duda Farm Fresh Foods has primary locations in Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, Georgia, New Jersey and Michigan.”
