Mar 13, 2014 Posted In


Southern Specialties announces the introduction of “Southern Selects” Asparagus Tenders in a stand-up microwave steam pouch.

The new presentation features trimmed asparagus spears with the tough bottom portion removed. European designed packaging technology allows the asparagus to actually steam in the pouch while being microwaved.

“The initial response to our new Southern Selects Asparagus Tenders has been very encouraging,” said Geno Valdes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Southern Specialties. “The stand-up steam pouch merchandises beautifully and the 10-ounce pack is ideal for a family. Perhaps best of all, the fresh flavor is exceptional! “
Southern Selects Asparagus Tenders in the steam pouch is available in either six- or 12-count boxes.

The new presentation complements the company’s asparagus lineup that includes year round supplies of bulk and value added presentations in a variety of formats.

Southern Specialties is a grower, importer, processor and shipper of a variety of specialty products grown in Central America, South America, Mexico, Canada and the U.S. The company distributes from its Pompano Beach, Florida headquarters, and facilities in McAllen, Texas and Los Angeles, California.
