Live Gourmet Heads to Viva Fresh Expo and Shares New Living Baby Romaine Product


On April 2 we’ll be heading to San Antonio, TX to the Viva Fresh Expo. The regional trade show allows exhibitors like Hollandia Produce to network and share their products with retail and foodservice buyers. Additionally, attendees can take part in educational offerings with topics ranging from emerging techniques for growers to the latest trends in produce merchandising.

We’re proud to launch our Living Baby Romaine retail product at the Expo. It’s our newest product in our Live Gourmet® family! The green, like our Living Butter Lettuce, Watercress and Upland Cress, is sold with its roots attached to preserve maximum freshness.

Baby Romaine 2It’s also is non-GMO verified, meaning it doesn’t contain genetic material that has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only third-party verification for non-GMO food and products. This endorsement represents Hollandia Produce’s ongoing commitment to use all natural ingredients in the production of its products, be it conventional or organic.

Living Baby Romaine is the perfect portion for one to two people, which also helps minimize waste. Why introduce Living Baby Romaine into your diet? The leafy green has more vitamin A than a carrot and is a rich source of vitamin K (a key role in helping blood clot) and omega 3 fatty acids (say goodbye to fish oil supplements!). Live Strong provides more reasons to eat romaine lettuce to maintain a balanced and healthy diet. Living Baby Romaine is a great addition to a variety of wraps, sandwiches and, of course, salads. After all, what would Caesar salad be without romaine?

We look forward to sharing our experience of the Viva Fresh Expo, and stay tuned for news of Live Gourmet® Living Baby Romaine coming soon to a grocery store near you!
