Clermont, FL (June 8, 2004) Uncle Matt's Organic, Inc., is breaking its own boundaries and exceeding all expectations! So says Matt McLean, CEO of Uncle Matt’s Organic, Inc, “We are moving into our 6th year with continued growth well above the industry average of 20% and are pleased to announce that our juice will be distributed with special bilingual labels into the Canadian market starting mid-June. To top it off, this month we are harvesting our first crop of certified organic grown mini watermelons grown here in Florida.” First entering the market with their premier organic orange juice, the company introduced Uncle Matt’s Fresh last fall offering certified organic oranges, tangerines and grapefruit nationwide. The Uncle Matt’s team farms and manages over 400 acres of organic citrus, with a combined production experience of 100 years and over 25 years of sales and marketing experience. Adds Matt, “Since our first days in business, we have always had a large vision of where we could take this company – from juice to fresh citrus and now our first organic watermelons!”
Uncle Matt’s Organic is harvesting over 20 acres of mini melons or personal size melons, as they are called, taking advantage of a new trend in the produce industry. According to Matt, “Uncle Matt’s Organic is one of the first companies in the U.S. to offer certified organic seedless mini watermelons. Why watermelons? Because we feel we can grow a high quality watermelon to fulfill consumer demand!” The company begins nationwide distribution immediately.
