Progreso and Skyline enter exclusive partnership

by | April 15, 2009
Progreso Produce, based in Boerne, TX, announced that it has entered into an exclusive sales and marketing agreement with Skyline Produce LLC, based in Hatch, NM, whereby it will market red, white, yellow and sweet onions in bulk and consumer packs.

Skyline Produce grows approximately 500 acres of onions and has been in business for about 10 years, but the principals of Skyline, like Progreso, have a long history in the onion industry.

Gary Palmer, sales manager at Progreso Produce, said in a press release, "We have a family history with the staff of Skyline that goes back over 25 years. We understand them and they understand us, allowing for a solid relationship built on trust."

The new sales and marketing arrangement between the two firms will add volume to Progreso's year-round onion program, rounding out the summer months with May-through-September production.

Marty Franzoy, managing partner at Skyline, added in the press release, "This is a perfect partnership for us to continue to grow and do what we do best, while Progreso sells and does what they do best. Our family history shows us they know how to get the job done."
