Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad puts a “south-of-the-border” spin on traditional mixed fruit

Renaissance Food Group, a fresh food company that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Calavo Growers, Inc., will feature one of their newest innovations items, Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad, at the upcoming United FreshMKT Expo. The product was created to capitalize on the chili-lime flavor trend that is rising in popularity among the Millennial and Gen Z populations.

Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad is a unique blend of pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, and mango chunks, jicama and cucumber sticks, and orange slices, and includes lime juice and a house-made chili-flavored seasoning blend, conveniently packed in an easy-to-open pouch. The end-consumer will simply add the lime juice and seasoning prior to consumption.

Packed in a square, Inline container with a tamper-evident tear-away strip, Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad merchandises easily into produce displays and stands out on display shelves with a newly designed, clear label, which prominently displays the Garden Highway logo while featuring the colorful fresh fruit and vegetables in its transparent container.

“As the Millennial generation and Gen Z are beginning to experience and influence new flavors and food trends, we saw an opportunity to create an extension to our lineup of fresh fruit products,” said James Naaman, Senior Vice President, National Sales for RFG. “Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad also allows us to utilize newly installed kitting equipment and pouch fillers for bagging spices and sauces, which will allow us to continue to innovate new and on-trend products.”

Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad will be featured in the Calavo Growers / Renaissance Food Group booth #1221 at United Fresh, and will be displayed in the Featured Product Showcase, located in the Grand Concourse, South Hall.
