May 17, 2013 – CIO Solutions, Santa Barbara’s premier IT firm, has begun providing IT support for Hollandia Produce, LLC(http://www.livegourmet.com/holland.html), a multi-faceted agricultural concern specializing in greenhouse-grown vegetables.
As a producer of Live Gourmet® brand butter lettuce, upland cress, and 3-n-1 lettuce, Hollandia Produce, LLC provides many of the major supermarket chains in the western states with a year-round supply of premium quality produce. All of their vegetable products are produced hydroponically in state-of-the-art greenhouses where they control light, temperature, humidity, and nutrients. By controlling these factors Hollandia Produce, LLC can increase yields, shorten crop times and produce a uniquely uniform high-quality product on a year-round basis.
Hollandia has been in business for over 43 years and is very active in the community. They recently donated multiple salad bars to local high schools as part of the Let’s Move Salad Bars to California Schools initiative.
