Greenhouse Produce Co. adds sales veteran to business development role

Edgar (Eddie) Condes, former director of global sourcing and regional sales manager at Eurofresh Farms in Willcox, AZ, joined Greenhouse Produce Co., based in Vero Beach, FL, effective June 15.

In his new role as director of business development, Condes will be located at the Nogales, AZ, office and is responsible for sales, sourcing, channel and product development. His duties also will include assisting ownership in strategically developing the company's growth.

At Greenhouse Produce, Condes, who spent close to two decades at Eurofresh, rejoins former colleagues Fried De Schouwer and Glen Bezanson, who were also formerly employed by Eurofresh Farms.

Greenhouse Produce Co. and its family of growers operate over 250 acres of greenhouse facilities in Mexico, ranging from high- to medium-tech facilities, securing year-round supply from Mexico and other Central American regions.

As a grower-shipper, GPC is dedicated to continuously improving the efficiency of its growing operations for optimal resource management while growing produce with superior flavor and ultimate safety.

Greenhouse Produce ships between 20 and 30 truckloads weekly to the United States and Canada through a forward distribution network stretching from its Arizona and Texas border warehouses to distribution points in Pennsylvania and California.

Its conventional and organic greenhouse product line includes a variety of tomatoes, such as beefsteak, on-the-vine, grape and Roma, as well as colored Bell peppers. GPC's offering includes retail, club and food service packs.

With the help of its local partners, Greenhouse Produce recently founded Greenhouse Company de Mexico, which operates a 20,000-square-foot distribution center in Celaya, Guanajuato Mexico. GCM supports growers from seed selection, production advice, food safety and traceability support through local distribution, packaging and shipping services.
