PETALUMA – Three Twins Ice Cream, which started small in 2005 and grew to three retail operations in the Bay Area, has opened an organic production plant in Petaluma.
According to founder Neal Gottlieb, the increased volume has already scored Three Twins a distributorship with United Natural Food Inc., which supplies Whole Foods.
"This is a major step forward for us," said Mr. Gottlieb, who chose opening his own business over attending graduate business school.
Organic and green products are often in niche markets, with buyers limited to believers or the affluent, he said.
"An organic food that tastes good and comes at a reasonable price point can become a national brand. Look at Amy's Kitchen."
