Oleen Smethurst is assistant vice president Buying and Operations - produce for Costco Wholesale Canada, based in Ottawa. She leads a team of nearly 30, and it’s her job to keep Costco’s 99 warehouses stocked with not just epic volumes of food, but also the trendiest and most popular fruits and vegetables.

Smethurst says that easy snacking and including more fruits and vegetables in our own and our kids’ diets is a key driver of fresh food trends. That said, after the salsa and hummus craze gave way to king kale, cauliflower rice, and avocado on everything, just what is the next “it” produce item?

Smethurst told realagriculture.com that it’s time for avocado to move over and make way for cauliflowerini.  Cauliflowerini has a less dense head than cauliflower and is sweeter, she says. It’s nutritious, great for sautés, and easy to prepare, ticking all the boxes of the next popular food craze.
