Mucci Farms Wins PAC Award for Veggies To Go™
KINGSVILLE, ONTARIO - Taking home another award, Mucci Farms’ Veggies To Go™ won a Best In Class Award in the New Brand–Food & Beverage category at the 2018 Packaging Consortium (PAC) Awards, a not-for-profit corporation with over 2,500 members throughout the packaging value chain.
“We are excited and honored to receive another award for Veggies To Go,” said Emily Murracas, Director of Marketing, in a press release. “Having been recognized within the produce industry for this product and package, it’s particularly exciting to be recognized in a broader context amongst well-established world-class brands and packages.”
The annual PAC Awards were judged by a panel of international brand design packaging experts from around the world. This year, over 200 entries were judged on a variety of criteria, including sustainability, food safety, cost, packaging material, graphic design, print process, practical usage, and the story of the product from inception to market. On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, at Brand Experience Magazine’s BXP Live! Conference in Bonita Springs, Florida, a team from Mucci Farms was on hand to accept Veggies To Go’s award.
“Veggies To Go was an exciting and challenging project that took us three years to bring to the market, so it’s very rewarding to have it received so well by retailers, consumers, and now industry packaging experts,” said Fernanda Albuquerque, New Product Development Manager.
Veggies To Go has received several awards over the years, including the Freggie Approved award at the Canadian Produce Marketing Association’s Convention & Expo, which recognized the best kid-centric product and package, as well as recently won the Award for Best New Package Promo at the PMA’s 2017 Fresh Summit Conference and Expo.
And, if you’re headed to SEPC’s Southern Exposure conference this week in Tampa, Florida, Veggies To Go will feature in the new product showcase, so be sure to check it out.
