Cut Fruit Express
Cut Fruit Express, Inc., a fresh fruit and vegetable processor, has built a solid reputation for quality and service in the food service industry. Under the leadership of Lawford Baxter, Ph.D., the Minneapolis, Minnesota-area company has become known for supplying pre-cut fruits and vegetables that are 100% usable. Cut Fruit Express also stands for food safety. Lawford Baxter ensures that its state-of-the-art plant adheres to stringent Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety processes.
Through its product line, Lawford Baxter emphasizes quality. Consequently, the company subjects raw materials to a strict inspection process. The fruits are examined to gauge their sweetness, color, texture, and appearance. Vegetables must also meet the vendor’s exacting standards for appearance, texture, and color. Only those products that pass inspection are processed for distribution.
Today, wholesalers and retailers rely on the extensive product offerings of Cut Fruit Express. The company features an array of pre-selected mixes and salads. Its gourmet salad blends iceberg and romaine lettuces, while its coleslaw combines carrots and red and green cabbage. Customers also may take advantage of packaged mixes that include ingredients for pot roast or fajitas. In addition, the food production firm offers salsa consisting of onion, tomatoes, peppers, and additional proprietary ingredients. Apart from these standard selections, customized mixes can be created to order.
Cut Fruit Express also supplies a considerable choice of packaged vegetables and fruit. It stocks strawberries, honeydew melon, grapes, pineapple, and many other options. Vegetable options range from green beans and potatoes to yellow, green, and red bell peppers.
