Q: With whom are you communicating and recognizing?
A: As most of you know we have an assembly and grading facility inValle de Guadalupe, Mexico. Our Gringo South team worked very hard duringthe Mother’s Day rush, so we continued our Town Hall recognition andappreciation lunches with them last week.
Q: That’s cool. Where is Valle de Guadalupe andwhy did you pick that location? A: “Valle” is actually the wine-growing region of northern Mexico.(Picture Napa Valley one hundred years ago.) We chose this beautiful region asit is close to Ensenada and many of our growing regions.
Q: Remind me again…How long ago did you open this facility?
A: We started this facility with 12 people 3 and a half years agoand now we have 155 team members there.
Q: Very cool. How did you recognize and appreciate the Gringo South team?
A: In much the same manner as the Gringo North team. We hand out awardshirts to teammates who have been with us for at least a year. Next, werecognize the Gringo Stars (these are team members who went above andbeyond during the Spring Season.) Then we select the best of the best inthe Star category and award the Gringo Gold Award. Of course, then weall enjoy a wonderful, catered Mexican style lunch (lots of yummy food.)

This facility is close to the ocean so the ceviche andfish tacos are as good as it gets.
Gotta have a cake right!?
