HLB Specialties moves from one growing season to the next for year-round supplies

IMG_6311Homero Levy De Barros, president and chief executive officer of HLB Specialties LLC in Pompano Beach, FL, told The Produce News that the company is currently importing large and small papayas, mangos and limes.

“The rambutan season just wrapped up and will start again in March or April,” Mr. De Barros said. “We’re also moving avocados from Mexico and Peru.

“Brazilian mangos just finished,” he continued. “From there we move to Ecuador, then comes Peru, followed by Guatemala, Mexico, Haiti and then back to Brazil. We move from one growing region to another to keep supplies coming in on a year-round basis for our customers.”

The company also imports papayas from several countries, not only to provide non-stop supplies but to mitigate any unforeseen weather conditions that could affect a crop.
