Lipman has divested Fresh Horizon, its procurement solutions business. The company was sold internally to former Lipman employee Joe Murphy, who previously served as the general manager of Fresh Horizon.
“This transaction gives us increased alignment with our customers and focuses us on our core product mix – fresh tomatoes and eastern vegetables,” said Kent Shoemaker, CEO of Lipman.
Lipman commands a significant percentage of the fresh tomato industry with locations throughout the United States and Mexico.
Lipman was recently featured as Florida Grower magazine’s cover story.
