by | April 18, 2010
With a vision steadfast in sustainability and quality at Village Farms, Doug Kling, senior vice president and chief sales and marketing officer, said that the Eatontown, NJ-based company strives to combine nature's best with advanced technical know-how to grow produce that bursts with old- fashioned taste and respects 21st century environmental principles.

"We are looking forward to United Fresh 2010 and are positioned to offer our customers a meeting room space (No. 1047) at the show," Mr. Kling said in an April 9 press release. "This will allow Village Farms and the customers we serve more face-to-face communications in a relaxed environment set apart from the hustle and bustle of the show floor."

Village Farms will be featuring all its hydroponic greenhouse varieties at the show, including its signature tomatoes-on-the-vine, Campari cocktail tomatoes, Beefsteak tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, and the popular cherry and grape tomato varieties. In addition, Village Farms' well-known sweet Bell peppers and long English cucumbers will be on display at the show.
