HLB Specialties importing rambutan

HLB-rambutan-(CORRECTED): Pompano Beach, Fla.-based HLB Specialties LLC is starting to import Guatemalan rambutan.

The papaya specialist received its first shipment on June 25 and is marketing the tropical fruit through a major retailer’s Florida stores, said Melissa Hartmann de Barros, HLB’s director of communications.
