MONTEREY, CA (August 10, 2010)—PRO*ACT, America's leading fresh produce supplier to the foodservice industry, has been named supplier of fresh fruit for Red Mango, one of the fastest growing frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothie chains in the U.S.
Red Mango recently launched a new, expanded smoothie menu that now features 22 varieties, many prepared with fresh fruit. “It is through strong alliances with our suppliers like PRO*ACT that we are able to introduce a variety of fresh fruit product-line expansions,” says Jay DeBlank, director of supply chain and purchasing for Red Mango. ““PRO*ACT has helped us streamline our product supply chain and offer cost-saving benefits for our franchisees across the country through their network of locally owned produce distribution facilities.”
“Red Mango’s partnership with PRO*ACT allows them to tie into our wellestablished national distribution network,” says Brian Kane, vice president of client services at PRO*ACT. “We cover all 50 metropolitan markets so we can serve Red Mango as it continues to grow nationally.”
