Press Release
Kingston announces arrivals of its Peruvian Sweet Onion program

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO-July 25th, 2013- Kingston, a major distributor, importer, and shipper of a variety of fruits and vegetables grown in Central America, South America, Mexico and the United States, announced today that it will begin shipping its premium quality Sweet Onion program from Peru with first arrivals into the U.S. slated for mid August.

Kingston's President, Ken Nabal, commented, "The steady development of our direct import programs, which now include Sweet Onions from Peru, have been a great success for our team. This starts with our 'boots on the ground' Quality Control and Food Safety professionals in Central and South America and ends with our talented sales professionals in our four regional U.S offices, our cold storage facilities and transportation capabilities. Our strategic plan is to continue providing 'value added' programs to our customers, finding operating efficiencies through vertical integration, and passing these savings along to the end user. Likewise, our growers are also happy with our expansion since we are able to provide excellent Retail and Food Service distribution channels nationwide for their products with sustained growth to follow."

While the "Kingston Sugar Pine" golden pineapple program from Costa Rica remains the flagship import program for Kingston, the Company has steadily branched out into other key globally-sourced products such as: mango, papaya, asparagus, melons, citrus and others. David O. Kingston, CEO and Owner, noted, "Our strong presence, both within the various growing regions as well as logistically at the port terminals, has allowed us to continue expansion of our products from Central and South America. We continue to broaden our excellent relationships in these countries and our grower-partners are excited to work and expand with us here at Kingston. The growth has been exciting."

Kingston concluded, "With this expanding portfolio of products, we will be better positioned to service our customers domestically and grow our collective businesses. As usual, the key will be to continue our brand promise of delivering excellent customer service while also maintaining a relentless commitment to quality and food safety. These are the hallmarks of our reputation within the industry."
