There is growing interest in the commercial production of high-value specialty fruit such as strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Much of the small fruit grown in North Carolina is currently marketed through pick-your-own establishments or roadside stands. A strong demand for these small fruit items from grocery stores and restaurants has prompted many growers to consider expanding their production to take advantage of these new marketing opportunities.

As a result of the health benefits associated with pomegranates, the German consumption of pomegranates is increasing. An interesting opportunity for pomegranate exporters lies in exports of ready-to-eat pomegranate arils. Producers in the Southern Hemisphere have the potential to offer pomegranates in the offseason of the Northern Hemisphere, where most pomegranates are produced.

Your rating: None

 

Imports of fresh berries into the European market from developing countries have doubled over the past five years. Berries are increasingly offered as a convenient and healthy snack, seducing shoppers into buying them. Although many berries are grown in Europe itself, demand is much higher than European production and imports from developing countries are filling in the gap.

Conducting Effective Meetings

In general, policies are guidelines to decision making—once in place, each decision does not have to be made anew from scratch. Policies reflect a company’s value system. The tone and language of policy statements will be taken as reflections of management attitudes toward employees. Personnel policies also outline expected worker conduct.

Most personnel decisions can be guided by policy determinations. Should all workers be given a practical test before being selected? Should employees be paid at the going rate, a cut above, or a cut below?
