Country Fresh, Inc. Launches Organic Line

Over 70 Organic Whole and Fresh-Cut Produce Available for Daily Shipment Nationwide

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 4, 2008) - Country Fresh, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of fresh-cut produce and ready-to-eat meal solutions, today announced the launch of the Country Fresh Organic™ line of whole and fresh-cut produce. More than 70 organic items are now processed through the company's six USDA Organic-certified facility locations.

Leveraging its exclusive group of suppliers and regional presence with a dedicated distribution network, the company's Country Fresh Organic line is available for daily shipments to national retail locations. Each whole produce item from the Country Fresh Organic line features a peel off tape label clearly marked with the word "Organic" and the associated PLU to ensure accurate produce codes are scanned or entered at the cash register. The peel off tape, instead of the dime-size PLU stickers typically applied to loose fruit and vegetables, is simple to remove and minimizes any potential impact to the produce skin or surface.

"Organic products have become one of the fastest growing segments in the food industry," said Doug Burris, Director of Marketing, Country Fresh, Inc. "Our regional organic-certified processing facilities have enabled us to deliver the freshest, highest quality organic produce anywhere in the country in less than 24 hours. We are excited to launch Country Fresh Organics and satisfy consumers' growing interests and demands for best quality, delicious, and safe organic fruits and vegetables."

The Country Fresh Organic line is currently available at select retail locations across the southeast. For more information, please visit http://www.countryfreshinc.com.
