Pacific Tomato Growers unveil new name, look and product line

Fourth generation, family-owned Pacific Tomato Growers announced the company’s newly established brands, Sunripe Certified Brands (U.S.) and Suncoast Certified Brands (Canada).

The newly designed brands are intended to communicate the entire Sunripe story, according to the company. By adding “Certified Brands” to the brand, it emphasizes the company’s commitment to its land, environment, employees and customers.

“We spent nearly 100 years building an infrastructure that could back up a brand that includes a powerful word like ‘certified,’ dedicated to providing the food safety, quality, sustainability and responsibility to the full scope of individuals who touch our product – from farm workers to consumers,” said Jon Esformes, CEO for Sunripe Certified Brands. “We’ve been living the Sunripe life for years and are excited to finally share our story with customers by putting a name and new look to the brand.”

Sunripe Certified Brands and Suncoast Certified Brands also announce the addition of fresh strawberries to their product lines, which will be available across the U.S. and Canada from November to April, beginning Nov. 2015. The company is able to bring the first Fair Food Program strawberries to market, and will continue to place the same quality standards on its strawberries as it has for its tomatoes over the last century.
