Sandy Eason of Calavo Growers Wins ANUK's Avocado Quiz Quix
SACRAMENTO, CA - How well did you fare in our quiz on the green fruit that has taken the consumer market by storm?
Ultimate accuracy and speed went to Calavo’s Sandy Eason, who claimed the avocado crown with the fastest time and a perfect score for $100 cash.
As someone truly California grown, and therefore an avid avocado fan, I’d like to give a bow to many who showcased green thinking by making top contender like Monterey Mushroom’s Mike O’Brien, Sobeys’ Jim Bower, Blue Apron’s Darren St. Thomas, To-Jo Mushrooms’ Pete Wilder, and Renaissance Food Group’s Rachelle Schulken.
Sandy joins the ranks of several savvy produce quizzers, including:
- LGS Specialty Sales Category Manager, Rebekah McMurrain
- Save Mart Buyer, Melissa Morrell
- NatureFresh™ Farms Sales Office Manager, Paul Schockman
- Fusion Marketing Senior Category Analyst and Marketing Specialist, Matt Schraut
- Oppy Social Media Coordinator, Kelsey Van Lissum
