chinese-herbal-medicine-to-treat-autoimmune-disordersBoy, do I feel silly. I left a trail of Tweets about how I was going into the freeze dried fruit business. Hey, I’ve done lots of things over the years, and managed to make a lot of money along the way. Nothing was going to keep me away from my latest brainstorm.

So, I loaded my van up down by the river six or eight times with boxes of ‘cots and prunes, after having five humongous freezers delivered to my home — it’s a 900 square foot condo on the ground floor. Man, I had all those box freezers all up to maximum temperature by the time I rolled in at midnight.

Well, I was up ‘till about 3 a.m. working on all those prunes and apricots…pitting, cleaning…pitting…cle…OK, it was a lot of work and I kept all of my social media friends updated on my progress.

Well, for some reason, being a city boy and all, I didn’t get the memo or part about what the “freeze” was in “freeze dried,” or anything about the whole darn process.

Needless to say, the next morning, when I proudly opened up my first freezer to check on my newly “freeze dried fruit,” I was stricken with one big stomach ache — I was looking at a 350-pound chunk of frozen prunes. Man, I thought a damn alien hopped in my freezer and expired or something.

And that wasn’t the only problem. You see, I had contacted hundreds of outlets like Big Lots and grammar and high schools and even the warden who ran our unfenced prison across town to tell them how I could bring them the best darn freeze-dried fruit they’d ever come across.

OMG! You don’t want to have a power outage when you’ve got a half ton of fruit all froze up in freezers encircling yours and three other condos. Whew. It was a veritable river of apricot and prune juice flowing through our nice campus — the dogs and cats loved it, but the owners told me they were up all night with their pets just keeping them comfortable…if you know what I mean.

OK, so this was one of those “hyperboles” to make a point about where to go if you need to stock up on inventory surplus items like Frozen Concentrate Orange Juice (FCOJ…is not a NASDAQ symbol to chase), and excess inventories that are sure to make your purchasing department.

Contact us for the straight-away way to benefit with surplus stock.

So I was minding my own business driving down the highway and my uncle Vito’s dispatcher calls and tells me that we’ve just bought four semi-trailers at a wholesale liquidators auction — surplus grocery items in 3 of them, the fourth is full of FCOJ – Frozen Concentrate Orange Juice and the auction house has certification the refrigeration has never been turned off. What am I supposed to do with about 50,000 gallons of stiff orange juice!  So I call my cousin Vinny and we go check out the trailers.

Turns out the three trailers with grocery items have surplus snack stuff,  like about 2,000 cases of bagged pretzels in one trailer, along with 40 pallets full of cases of big jars of pickled eggs, all nicely boxed and ready to go. We found what looks like 20 pallets of cases of beef jerky, and behind them was about the same amount of bagged healthy snacks like trail-mix and the like. We found enough Beer Nuts to feed a small army in the very front of the last trailer.  Oh yeah, and two pallets of toothpaste, too! The good news is that we only have one pallet with about 30 small boxes w/24 in each of toothbrushes!  And of course, in the last one was indeed a whole bunch of containers with FCOJ.  Where, oh where, are we gonna get rid of all this stuff?

We start making phone calls. Vinny finds a wholesale liquidator who wants all of it!  Not only does this guy want the FCOJ, he’s got a use for the rest of the surplus stuff as well!  Momma Mia can this be for real? And he’s working with Vinny to come out and pick it all up. I can’t tell you how pleased I am right now, but I can tell you that the folks coming for the FCOJ have promised us cash.  Life is good.

When they arrive for the pickup, Vinny, always the entrepreneurial type, starts asking the drivers probing questions.  Talkative lot they were. They wouldn’t tell us exactly where they were going with all of the surplus stuff. But all four tractors had contact us stenciled on the side and they assured us that they could handle these four trailers and another 40 if we could find them!  They kept saying “They turn excess inventory into cash!  No job too big or too small.”  They are always looking for surplus foods that includes fruit commodities, vegetable commodities, meats, poultry, bulk products and dairy stuff, too, like cheese, eggs. The more they can find, the better.  They’ll take anything that’s already packaged, or if you need it, they can help with packaging too. They do the pickup, packaging and will handle the retail marketing as a distribution wholesalers would.

What a triumphant day this has been and watching that stiff FCOJ head down the road WITHOUT me is awesome. What a country! OMG — Vinny’s on the phone with some farmer trying to buy his field of watermelons!

Anyway, remember to contact us for all frozen concentrated orange juice commodity and fresh fruit and veg needs.
