Peppe Bonfiglio Discusses SUNSET® ALOHA™ Peppers and You Make Me™ Pasta Kits
KINGSVILLE, ON - With all the hullaballoo around convenience these days, many companies around our industry are stepping up to ensure flavor isn’t lost in the quest for exciting, convenient product offerings. One such company is SUNSET® Produce.
I tapped Peppe Bonfiglio, Director of Sales, on the United Fresh show floor to get the inside scoop on what makes a few of SUNSET’s latest launches stand out in more ways than one.
“The show has been great. It’s been busy here at our booth,” Peppe told me. “We’re featuring our ALOHA™ Peppers. So, we’re doing an ALOHA rice mix. It’s a little bit citrusy. Adding a little lime to that. And also, we’re serving up our pasta kits. So, these are our ready-made meal solution pasta kits that we’re cooking up as well. Everything we offer here is great flavorful items.”
After launching just as the peak of grilling season hit, the ALOHA Peppers are not only beautiful to look at, thanks to their unique yellow and red striping, but they also bring a sweet, tropical, and versatile flavor to dishes that is perfect for the summer season and beyond.
And, the You Make Me™ pasta kits are a one-two punch of convenient deliciousness. Containing everything consumers need for a gourmet pasta dish—including favorites like Classic Italian, Spicy Arrabbiata, Creamy Parmesan, and Cold Pasta Salad—the kits come fully stocked with tomatoes, pasta, spice packets, and infused olive oil. Cooking has never been this easy.
“What differentiates us is our passion for flavor. We’re always out there looking for the next greatest tomato, cucumber, and pepper that will really set us apart,” Peppe shared.
