A LOVE FOR FRESHNESS.
Specialty product has lost its most important characteristic. Many of the items that we began producing twenty years ago are still considered "specialties". Items such as french beans, baby squash, and peeled carrots can now be found in the most common of grocery stores. Produce buyers have become hesitant to purchase new items and growers are not willing to grow items without existing markets.
As a grower there is nothing as exciting as producing an item that begins to create its own demand. Here at Top Shelf Specialty we expect to bring back some excitement to the specialty produce market. We are combining our knowledge of the most common specialty items with our desire to bring new items to market. Our item list will continue to evolve throughout the year as we test new products.
