Southern Cross Growers LLC
- Member Content
Southern Cross Growers, LLC intends to establish a produce marketing company which will source fruit and other produce from both its own Georgia-grown farm, driven by consumer demand and emerging in the produce industry, as well as from other growing regions for commercial sales. Southern Cross Growers LLC is an agriculture business. To explain our model, we are a grower-packer shipper who markets our own production along with the potential to pack, ship, market and even re-pack for other growers.
Distributing from Georgia to the east coast, the company has a large freight cost advantage over imported, California or Mexican fruits. Southern Cross will further extend these advantages using Controlled Atmosphere (CA) equipment which maintains fruit freshness longer by controlling temperature/Oxygen-CO2/humidity. No other growers in Georgia use CA except sweet onions.
The fruits/produce include: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, apples, table grapes and corn. The business is PACA licensed; this is the USDA approval required to operate in the produce industry.
