Roots: Stories Behind the People Who Help Feed the World

For those of us in agriculture we know that to produce good food and plenty of it, we need plants with strong roots. They are a plant’s lifeblood, providing an anchor, storing energy, and delivering the critical water and nutrients it needs to grow and produce. In the world of vegetable production, farmers are our strong roots. They are consistently innovating – finding new ways to grow food more efficiently, more sustainably, that looks and tastes great — and above all — that consumers will enjoy. They are passionate, dedicated and on a mission to not only feed our communities, but to also improve our world. Roots: Stories Behind the People Who Help Feed the World are their stories. And we’re honored and proud to share to them.

Platinum Produce

Ontario-based Platinum Produce is a family owned and operated greenhouse that produces sweet bell peppers, tomatoes on the vine and beefsteak tomatoes. Join the Verbeek family as they take us into their greenhouse and share how their local team delivers the high-quality produce that consumers expect and deserve. 

Mucci Farms

Consumers need access to fresh fruit and vegetables no matter the time of year or climate they live in. That’s why perfection is always top of mind at Mucci Farms, which is producing fruits and vegetables in their more than 250 acres of greenhouses. Danny Mucci, partner in Mucci Farms, says his dad instilled that into everyone there. It starts with workers having a perfect zone of plant health in their section of the greenhouse and continues through harvest, packing and shipping where there is only one human touch throughout the process.
