Wed 23/11/2022 by Pierre Escodo
Established in Florida and Germany, HLB has been accelerating its import growth and product range of exotics.
“People are looking for more new products since the pandemic,” said Melissa Hartmann de Barros, director of communications at HLB Specialties in Florida.
The value-added exotic fruit range has grown significantly in the past two years, and the company keeps expanding its organic exotic fruit line. Ginger and papaya have been the most successful organic products recently, while rambutan, dragon fruit, pitahaya and Samba™ Papaya are the fastest-growing conventional products.
