PLANT CITY, Fla. (August 2, 2011) – Wishnatzki Farms, a Florida-based grower-shipper, today announced its new company name, Wish Farms. After 90 years and three generations of carrying on the family name, the company is officially changing from Wishnatzki Farms to Wish Farms to further develop its focus on consumer branding.
In January 2010, Wishnatzki Farms debuted “Wish Farms,” the new brand for its fresh produce products. The consumer label, featuring Misty the Wish Farms Garden Pixie, replaced the “Wishnatzki Farms” label helping to position the company for continued growth.
“Building brand recognition amongst consumers is a top priority. Introducing the new label last year was the first step in transitioning from the Wishnatzki name to Wish Farms. It’s time to make it official,” said President Gary Wishnatzki. “I’m proud of the organization my grandfather, uncle and father built. We will continue to uphold the traditions, values and quality service that we are known for.”
Though the name has been officially transferred, changes will occur gradually over the next 2-4 months. Marketing materials, including product labels, purchase orders and order confirmations, will be replaced during that time.
A letter of notification is being sent directly to the company’s customers, vendors and suppliers. There has been no change in the company’s management or ownership.
