“The first truckload of just over 20 tons was delivered on August 9,” said Jan Telander, Chairman and CEO of ProGreen, “and we’re on pace for five truckloads or more, valued at roughly $10,000 (USD) per truck, to be delivered weekly and continuing through the fall.”
The Company’s U.S. distribution subsidiary, ProGreen Farms US, LLC, imports produce from the Rancho Arenoso farm, located near El Rosario, Baja California, Mexico. ProGreen Farms™ Rancho Arenoso is growing chili peppers on the approximate 100 acres currently being farmed, and has plans for diversifying the operation with other types of produce for U.S. buyers as it expands onto the nearby 2,500 acres that ProGreen’s Mexican subsidiary, Procon Baja JV, just acquired in June.
