Ag Link Specialty Foods (ALSF) is a new division of the company, launching Summer 2019 providing value added processing of nuts and dried fruit at the Ag Link Food Hub.
Through a partnership with Heriberto and Benina Montes of Burroughs Family Farms, ALSF has acquired the equipment, recipes and assistance of industry guru, Zack Shahbaz (aka "The Flavor Guy") to provide local growers and grocers with custom nut processing services.
The company is ramping up to provide both conventional and organic nut roasting, flavoring and butter processing along with chocolate/yogurt coating of nuts and dried fruits. These services will be provided to local growers who'd like to sell or gift their own products to family, friends or markets and also to local grocers including farm stands, farmers market vendors and other niche markets looking to expand their product line. With low minimums, ALSF looks forward to meeting the needs and grow new markets with many local partners.
