What is Specialty Produce?

Athenafarms Heirloomtomatoes

Specialty produce is a great way for operations to improve their menu and overall business. It gives them an opportunity to upsell these more expensive items because they are unique, special, and often often harder to come by. This can be because of the item’s short growing season or that they are more expensive to grow if they require special care or sensitive to climate changes.

There are always new and interesting specialty produce coming out from all over the world, so it is important to offer all of the highest quality items for your customers to enjoy. Examples of specialty produce can range from different types of onions or mushrooms to even items such as sweet corn and heirloom tomatoes. Rainbow baby carrots, Snow peas, and sugar snaps are among other novelty appeals.
