NEW ORLEANS, LA –  If you’ve watched shows like Chef’s Table, you already know you’re never too old to put a little bit of fun into your eating experience. And it looks like the buyers at PMA Fresh Summit agreed. In PMA’s annual Sensory Experience Contest, a panel of professional produce buyers, food bloggers, and local kids alike cast their vote at this year’s Fresh Summit convention, selecting DelFrescoPure®’s Mini Cucumber Strawberry Boats as the winner of its Buyers’ Choice Award.

“We were excited to compete in the Sensory Experience Competition and were thrilled when we won the Buyers Choice Award, featuring our Mini Cucumber Strawberry Boats,” Marketing Manager Fiona McLean tells me. “The recipe features our Mini Crunchers Cucumbers® and YES!Berries Your Everyday Snack™ strawberries with a touch of feta cheese and reduced balsamic vinegar. The combination is sweet, crunchy, and refreshingly light! Our team has worked hard on developing innovative recipes for in-store demos with children as the main focus.”

PMA has continued its Sensory Experience Contest year in and year out as a way to promote greater consumption of fresh produce at home, in schools, and across foodservice settings. Set up as a way to showcasing the delicious flavors and beautiful colors of fresh fruits and vegetables, the panel of buyer judges preselected finalist recipes based on the following criteria, according to PMA:

  • Produce-centric: Produce should be the primary ingredient and the star of the dish
  • Innovative: The dish should be innovative and creative, without precluding the ability to easily replicate it in a home or commercial kitchen
  • Visually appealing: The dish must have "eye appeal" and be vibrant and colorful, without hindering the ability to replicate the recipe in a home or commercial setting
  • Kid-friendly: The dish should appeal to children, and be easily replicated in a school or consumer kitchen

And it sounds like DelFrescoPure hit all the marks! Want to learn more about each and every DelFrescoPure product that made this recipe the top choice among Fresh Summit's buyer judges? Visit
