Mucci Farms Wins 2014 Fresh Summit Impact Award for New Pint Series Packaging
KINGSVILLE, ON - It was an eventful PMA Fresh Summit for Mucci Farms this year as the company launched one of its most successful showings yet. Mucci Farms was awarded the PMA Impact Award for its innovative New Pint top-seal re-sealable package, and introduced a number of new products that appeal to a wide range of consumers.
The New Pint Series was praised by industry members for its unique, sophisticated appearance, re-sealable technology, and sustainable design. Featuring high graphic recipe images and great product visibility, the New Pint offers a number of attractive merchandising options for retailers, according to a press release.
Other Mucci Farms products selected as Impact Award finalists included the Terreno™, naturally brown tomato custom lidded tray and Cutecumbers™, standup re-sealable bag.
In addition to the New Pint, Mucci Farms has also introduced Fresh MIX, a new dual compartment, re-sealable top-seal tray that allows consumers to enjoy 2 of their favorite tomato varieties in 1 unique package. Other new product launches include Mucci Farms’ Naked Leaf series – living lettuce and herbs, Smuccies, sweet strawberries, Hotshots, ‘Flavor on Fire’ mixed hot peppers, and Blended Flavors, a medley of snack sized tomatoes, 5 varieties hand-selected ‘best in class’.
The conference itself was an exciting event for the company. Over 1,000 free samples of Mucci Farms’ Veggies to Go snack packs were given away at the registration area on Saturday morning, and the company was also selected as one of ten finalists for the Sensory Experience Contest, a showcase of innovative kid-friendly recipes that involves private tasting sessions by a panel of buyer judges and local children. Mucci Farms’ Cool Summer Treats recipe made with Cutecumbers™ drew crowds at the company’s Fresh Ideas in Action Reception.
As part of the annual PMA 5K Race, Mucci Farms had its largest team registration in company history with 14 runners and its very own Bert Mucci finishing second overall.
“Overall, our experience and exposure at the PMA Fresh Summit was amazing and we look forward to building and developing the working relationships that were created at this year’s show,” Mucci Farms said in a press release.
Congrats on the successful showing, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
