Mucci Farms' Emily Murracas and Steve Zaccardi Discuss Upcoming CPMA Showcase
KINGSVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA - Step into your backyard and what do you see? Well, for Mucci Farms, that will soon be the Canadian Produce Marketing Association’s Convention and Trade Show in Toronto. The grower takes a lot of pride in being part of the global produce industry but looks forward to embracing and promoting its Canadian heritage at the event.
“We are excited to showcase our full assortment of products as we kick off the local season. Amongst that assortment, we are highlighting our new Savorries Strawberry Tomatoes. This unique and flavorful tomato variety is perfect for foodies and culinary enthusiasts. It’s sweet like a strawberry, savory like a tomato!” said Emily Murracas, Director of Marketing. “We are also gaining momentum on our Paper Top Seal package, now offered in a reseal format which converts a common footprint container into a fully recyclable item. We are in full production and encouraging retailers to jump on board and partner with us to address one of the biggest challenges in our industry.”
As Steve Zaccardi, Senior Director of Sales, told me, all industry members should attend CPMA because even though it’s a Canadian show, many suppliers distribute throughout the continent; there’s plenty of opportunity for partnerships even if you’re a retailer, wholesaler, or foodservice company outside of Canada.
“Our main goals are to reinforce Controlled Environment Agriculture as the future of farming that offers clean growing practices and real solutions to some of the bigger challenges of the day,” Steve added. “What we do is sustainable and efficient, and there is innovation at every level of our business dedicated to maximizing environmental protection while producing clean, fresh, and flavorful fruits and vegetables.”
Mucci Farms hopes to convey the message that it is a one-stop shop that can take care of retailers from end to end across North America.
“We have the experience, the scale, and the supply to build out custom programs that fit any type of retail environment from brick-and-mortar supermarkets to boutique stores and foodservice outlets,” Steve continued. “Mucci Farms has a full support staff to make sure all of our partners in produce can rely on a team of people eager to help them deliver for their customers.”
In addition to its showcase, Mucci Farms’ annual sponsorship of the Relaxation Lounge continues this year. Attendees can kick back and relax at “The Green Lounge”—a great place to get off your feet, have a meeting, or a place to work outside of the busy show floor. The space will be complete with refreshments and, of course, some sample of Smuccies™ Sweet Strawberries to snack on.
