Our team at California Sun Dry Foods is geared up for a busy 2018 from our fields to your table we bring you products drenched in the California sun. In case you weren't aware our company was founded in 1991 and we are now the leading supplier of superior quality sun-dried food products sold through supermarkets nationwide.
We are celebrating 2018 by looking back on the highlights from 2017. It's a new year, and the perfect time to reflect on the progress we have made as a company. Get to know more about the California Sun Dry Foods team in this post.
January of 2017 began with a trip to Farm Star Living's 2017 Product Harvest in Atlanta, Georgia featuring new and hot food products hitting the market in 2017. We were honored to be a part of the sold-out event. Check out the photos from our time in Atlanta. Shout-out to Farm Star Living for hosting this innovative event.
The beginning of the year was a busy travel season for California Sun Dry Foods from March 9th through the 11th we attended Southern Exposure 2017 in Orlando, Florida, the theme for last year was "The Magic of Produce." We connected with other suppliers in the produce industry while working the California Sun Dry Foods booth at this tradeshow. Check out the photos to see more from our experience.
We took a break from traveling during the peak of spring, summer and early fall to plant, grow, and harvest our California sun-dried products. Check out the photos from our fields for a behind-the-scenes look at the products you love. Things were busy on the farm getting this year's harvest prepped and out into the hot California sun. Check out our team preparing another batch of tomatoes to be placed on drying trays and placed by hand out into the drying fields for the next 7-10 days.
We finished up our harvest season with a final tradeshow in the fall. Our team wrapped up their 25th year exhibiting at the annual PMA Fresh Summit Show in New Orleans this year! This year's event brought in over 19,500 people to the show floor, and we served up our famous appetizers including Holiday Torte, Sun Trumpets and our Guacamole with Smoked Sun-Dried Tomatoes. Thank you, and a job well done to Bill, Lucy, Gary and the rest of our team.
We closed the year by giving back to our loyal customers in a big way! During November and December, we rewarded more than ten social media followers with California Sun Dry Tomatoes and gift cards!
