"Despite the overall reduced asparagus volume caused by inclement weather, Giumarra Borquez is expecting increased volumes of high quality asparagus this season," Dowhan said in a company press statement.

The Mexican-based affiliate of the Giumarra Companies reported that its main growing region in Obregón had not been affected by storms in Mexico.

The partnership between Giumarra Companies and the Mexican branch will begin supplying asparagus to North America beginning in October. The company highlight coverage of key holidays such as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Giumarra also pointed to the product's Fair Trade USA certification, established in June 2012.

"We are proud to be the first Fair Trade Certified asparagus grower in the world," Dowhan said.

"We are seeing increasing consumer awareness and interest in Fair Trade Certified products in the market. Just as our customers look to partner with suppliers who are socially and environmentally conscious, their consumers look to shop at stores with these same qualities."
