WALNUT CREEK, CA - It’s always nice to be recognized for your work, it’s even better when you come out as a winner for it. Del Monte® Foods, on the other hand, scored a hat trick. This year, the company was recognized across three value-added categories as 2020 Product of the Year winners.
“At Del Monte Foods, we’re on a mission to bring people accessible and great-tasting nutrition through the goodness of fruits and vegetables,” said Greg Longstreet, President and CEO, Del Monte Foods. “It is fantastic to see that these new products are already becoming people’s favorites.”
According to the press release, the plant-based food company won recognition for its Veggieful Veggie Bowls™ in the convenience meals category, Fruit Crunch Parfait™ in the snack cups category, and Contadina® Pizzettas in the frozen snack category.
Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation with this year seeing the largest number of participants to date, as stated in the press release.
“We couldn’t be more proud to see three of our products honored this year,” said Bibie Wu, Chief Marketing Officer, Del Monte Foods. “To be selected as ‘winner’ within a brand new category like frozen snacks is very exciting and demonstrates the strength of our R&D and Innovation teams.”
Winners are determined by the votes of 40,000 consumers in a nationally representative survey conducted by research partner Kantar, a global leader in consumer research. This year marked the 12th year of the award in the U.S. and more than 30 years globally.
