Nov. 14, 2011 - PRLog -- Marengo Foods Company, LLC, distributers of tomatoes, bell peppers, egg plants, cucumbers and other vegetables, recently completed filming for O2 Media’s hit morning show, “The Balancing Act.”  The segment which features Juan Ibarra, CEO of Marengo Foods, will air this month as part of the “From the Earth to the Plate” series on Lifetime Television.

“Appearing on “The Balancing Act” is a great opportunity to educate viewers on how Marengo Foods has been established in order to provide the consumer with products in a fresher, safer and more affordable way,” says Ibarra.

When shopping for vegetables like tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant and cucumbers a big concern for consumers is safety.  He also explains to viewers how to know they're getting the safest produce.  “To get vegetables to your dinner table, there are basically two methods.  One, the produce is grown at a farm and is shipped to a distributor, also called shipper, who in turn may ship to one or many distributors down the supply chain before it gets to the distribution centers and from there to the stores. In this case, you are relying on three or more separate companies to maintain the highest growing and handling standards all the way to the grocery stores,” he adds.  “The other way is when growers deal directly with the grocery stores and to have them integrate themselves vertically allowing them to deliver the produce directly to the grocery stores’ distribution centers, ooprc this form of supply has what’s called a Single Line Traceability, because it is supplied direct from the grower.”

Tune in to the upcoming segment as Juan walks viewers through the concept of a single company handling growing-packing-shipping, how it’s more cost effective as well as how it’s more sanitary and clean.
