Shuman Produce to unveil new products at Southern Exposure

Shuman Produce is looking forward to the excitement of the 2017 Southern Exposure in Orlando, FL. As a year-round grower and shipper of RealSweet brand sweet onions, Shuman Produce plans to showcase its upcoming Vidalia onion crop available to retailers from late April to August. The expanding family business will also spotlight its new product offerings — sweet potatoes and Georgia-grown broccoli — at Booth No. 400.PF2C4580John Shuman

“We are currently in our second growing season of broccoli and plan to have some on display along with some images from the field and harvest. Shuman Produce is also excited about promoting its sweet potato program even more in 2017,” John Shuman, president of Shuman Produce, said in a press release.

Shuman Produce is proud of its long partnership with the Southeast Produce Council and serves as a Gold sponsor for the 2017 conference and expo. “We are looking forward to building stronger relationships and sharing our story of family, farms and legacy,” said Shuman.

In addition to highlighting its products, Shuman Produce will also be introducing its How to Speak Southern 2.0 campaign. After tremendous success in 2015, this marketing promotion will once again highlight the uniqueness of Southern living. Throughout the Vidalia onion season, Shuman Produce will share new videos, recipes, grower stories and even a quiz to engage consumers and test their true knowledge of the South.
