SOLEDAD, Calif. – July 6, 2022 – Braga Fresh BB #:206762 is a sponsor of the 2022 Organic Produce Summit in Monterey where the company will debut a revamped Josie’s Organics Baby Leaf container with new graphic design and less plastic in booth #301 at the summit exhibition July 14.

“This year it’s all about the packaging as our customers and consumers have requested,” said Kori Tuggle, vice president marketing and product development.  “We’ll be showcasing our 1-pound baby leaf containers that now have a 23 percent plastic reduction, are 100 percent recyclable (including the labels) and an updated design.”

On July 13, the company will host an OPS field tour at the Braga Home ranch.  The tour will travel through the Salinas Valley to the home of Josie’s Organics in Soledad where attendees will rotate through short learning stations that cover topics such as regenerative farming, laser weeding, pollinators, good bugs and bees.  There is an invitation-only reception later that evening.

On Thursday, July 14, Eric Morgan, vice president of environmental science and resources, will participate in the education session, “Regenerative Ag 101: Regenerative the New Organic.”

The new, reduced plastic and 100 percent recyclable, container is also available to Braga Fresh private label partners.
