Windset Farms sorbetto in PMA spotlight

Oct. 26, 2012, Anaheim, CA — Windset Farms is debuting a new not-available-in-stores treat made just for
the occasion – cucumber-basil sorbetto – at this week's PMA Convention and Expo.

Oct. 26, 2012, Anaheim, CA — It’s Sorbetto Windsetto part two for Windset Farms®. At this year’s Produce Marketing Association Convention and Expo, Windset is debuting a new not-available-in-stores treat made just for the occasion – cucumber-basil sorbetto.
“We love getting creative with our produce,” said John Newell, Windset COO. “This is another example of how consumers and chefs can leverage the consistency, flavour and freshness of our products. We grow premium ingredients for just about any dish you can think of.”
The sorbetto is a cool follow-up of Windset’s zesty red pepper sorbet, a frozen surprise the greenhouse grower introduced last April at CPMA in Calgary.
This new version of the cool treat was created just for the PMA Fresh Summit using 1,225 pounds of Windset’s Fresco™ Mini Cucumbers and 14 pounds of basil. There’s more than half a pound of Fresco™ Mini Cucumbers in one 135 ml serving.
The sorbetto’s fusion of cool and savory, rounded out by a hint of sweetness, makes it quite versatile. It works as an appetizer, a palate cleanser between dinner courses (we’re thinking rich Italian dishes!), and a tongue-tingling dessert.
Windset commissioned Vancouver gelato master Chris Loscerbo, of Mario’s Gelati, to create the limited-edition sorbetto. The gourmet dessert is only available at the PMA Fresh Summit at Windset Farms booth number 1232.

Headquartered at their Delta, B.C. facility and with greenhouses in Abbotsford, Santa Maria, California and Las Vegas, Windset Farms is a family-run business that has become one of the largest greenhouse produce companies in North America.
