“We ship all of our Southern Hemisphere organic apples to the US in ocean containers and are bringing most of them into the Port of Philadelphia because of the reduced carbon footprint. Our studies have found that the amount of carbon or fuel required to ship an ocean container with 1,176 cartons of apples to Philadelphia from the Southern Hemisphere uses 1/12th the amount of carbon or fuel required to ship a truckload of 980 cartons of apples from the west coast of the US to the east coast. Additionally, because our apples are half a year fresher than domestically grown apples at the same time of year, there is an additional carbon savings from the electricity saved from the fact that our apples are stored for six months less time,” said David Posner, President and CEO of Awe Sum Organics.
Awe Sum Organics is working with Southern Hemisphere growers from Chile, New Zealand, and Argentina.
