Village Farms' Heavenly Villagio Marzano® Chosen as Finalist for United Fresh's Product Innovation Awards
DELTA, CANADA - As the industry preps to gather in the Windy City for another United Fresh, Village Farms is kicking off the event with a nod to its creative endeavors. Village Farms' Heavenly Villagio Marzano® 5 oz ready-to-eat snack bag has been chosen as a finalist for the Product Innovation Awards at United Fresh 2017.
“This unique fresh and healthy tomato snacking bag in 5 oz and ready-to-eat format satisfies both sweet and savory snack cravings alike,” said Director of Brand Marketing and Communication Helen L. Aquino. “Our authentic Heavenly Villagio Marzano® tomato needs no refrigeration making it an excellent item for display out of the produce section, such as in the snack aisle or near the register for that spontaneous nibbler purchase.”
The 5 oz bags are being considered for the packaging category award, according to a press release. This authentic mini San Marzano tomato is exclusive to Village Farms, comes washed and ready to eat, and is featured as the one of the only fresh tomato snacking item at several parks at Walt Disney World.
As an additional perk, the bag is recyclable and uses significantly less plastic than clamshell-style packaging. As a grab-and-go item it provides both a healthy snacking alternative to the usual offering of sugary and salty snacks, while being environmentally conscious.
