Limehouse’s Quality Assurance program plays an integral part in our teams effort to ensure customers receive quality produce at competitive prices. Field monitoring is done weeks and days before harvest to keep abreast of supply and quality issues in the various growing regions. This diligent monitoring enables Limehouse to forecast supply volume and spot potential quality problems.
As we move into the peak of the hurricane season the National Hurricane Center is monitoring 8 separate systems five of which pose or could pose a threat to land.

It’s almost the time of year for menus to feature a sea of red, juicy local heirloom tomatoes!! Locals and visitors alike always love going out and enjoying the creative dishes and drinks featuring the local delicacies and Limehouse Produce is excited to once again promote it all with their annual Heirloom Tomato Trek.
The Heirloom Tomato Trek will run from June 20 to July 22 with a goal of promoting more to the public about the varietals, the local farmers, the supporting chefs, and more.
As part of the campaign, we are asking our restaurants, chefs and bartenders to consider getting behind the effort. We are asking you to submit photos and details on your dishes or drinks featuring local/heirloom tomatoes so we can promote on a special online website to the public. Patrons can then vote on their favorite posted items. A panel of judges will then go and select the best dish or drink as the winner who will receive a truck wrapped with an dish image for a period of time promoting the restaurant, and a special tomato trophy to display proudly.
If a restaurant/chef participates in this campaign, they will be promoted as part of the Trek via various outlets including a map listing all the participants. Limehouse Produce will be encouraging patrons to go to the participating places and order the featured dish or drink. Once they order, they are asked to take a photo and submit online and one lucky patron will a $100 gift card to the winning restaurant.
If you want to be involved in a different way, and have recipes you want to submit, we promote those as well. You can host a special event during the timeframe and we will help promote it. We also encourage any onsite promotions at your establishments/through your outlets. We can provide more on the varietals, photos and more details if needed.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and we hope to hear from you soon. Time is short as the promotion will kick off June 20 so please submit your details as quickly as you can.
