Sundia gets heftier slice of melon market
Feb 24, 2006 9:28 AM, from staff and wire reports
San Francisco CA-based Sundia Corp has formed strategic partnerships with Borders Melon Co and Leger and Son Inc, two leading watermelon growers and distributors. These partnerships let the firms brand their watermelons with the Sundia trademark and help provide melons year-round—whether fresh or as watermelon juice and concentrate.
Borders, based in Hargill TX, has more than 7,500 acres devoted to growing watermelons. Its melons are packed in a 90,000-square-foot facility in Edinburg TX.
Based in Cordele GA, Leger and Son has farms in Georgia and Florida. It becomes the third watermelon grower and distributor to brand its melons with the Sundia trademark.
