|Calavo - Limoneira's
Avocado Go-To-Market Partner|
Limoneira partners with Calavo, one of the avocado industry's largest marketers, to get delicious Limoneira avocados to the world's consumers and
food service operators. Calavo's headquarters are located on Limoneira
Ranch property in Santa Paula, further enhancing our partnership.
Over the last few years,
Calavo enhanced its avocado ripening program by introducing ProRipeVIP�
(verified internal pressure). This utilizes Acoustic Firmness Sensors
(sound wave technology) to determine the firmness of an avocado by "listening"
to its vibrational pattern. Calavo is the only avocado marketer in the
U.S. to offer this newest, most innovative, and accurate, post-ripe sorting
technology. By providing stores with avocados that are ready to eat, this
value-added service helps boost consumption and breeds happy customers.
In addition to avocados,
Calavo provides the market with tomatoes, pineapples, and papayas, as well as
packaged products such as guacamole, chips, and dips. Calavo's new
subsidiary, Calavo Salsa Lisa,
is another new product in the company's product line. Salsa, the most
popular condiment in the United States, outsells ketchup by nearly two to
one. We have high hopes for a Calavo home-run on this delicious new
product. Make Calavo Salsa Lisa,
your party-partner. For more information on Calavo, please visit www.Calavo.com.

Creating a Mood with Scents:
Have you ever noticed how the warm scent of a candle wafting through the air can be uplifting, energizing, or make you cozy? Or maybe there's a certain body spray, soap, or perfume that just keeps you going through the day.
Citrus Scents provide energy: Need a pick-me-up? Grab a cup of java and light a citrus candle. Citrus scents enhance energy and boost mood so look for candles with lemon, lime, grapefruit, verbena or orange scents.
Soothing Citrus Bath
Calm your nerves and soothe your sense with this delightful mix of orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and lime.
Squeeze the juice of one orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and lime into a jar. Combine the peels in a blender; blend until minced very fine. Add to juice. Pour as much as desired into bath water for a soothing calming bath.
