Lipman Family Farms has increasingly invested in new technology and innovation, but most importantly in their talent. “I’m committed to tapping into the potential of the people of Lipman and fostering an environment for innovation and growth in order to meet the future needs of the produce supply chain,” said Elyse Lipman, CEO of Lipman Family Farms.

She added, “My role is to create runways for our best-in-class team of operators and problem-solvers to thrive.”

Throughout its 75-year history, Lipman has cultivated an atmosphere that nurtures innovation, dedicating resources to both talent and new technologies to further product innovation. With their uniquely vertically integrated model and partnerships across R&D, Lipman continues to keep a pulse on products with highly sought-after consumer qualities, including rich flavor and vibrant color. Their dedication to innovation has led to their latest introduction of two exciting, flavor-centric tomato varieties to the market.

During SEPC’s Southern Innovations, attendees will be able to see for themselves these award-winning tomatoes. The Monet Red™, recipient of the prestigious 2023 Superior Taste Award from the International Taste Institute, will be featured in the innovation showcase.
