NatureFresh Farms™ Announced as Finalist for World's Most Inspirational Tomato Grower
BERLIN, GERMANY – From the floor of the ongoing Fruit Logistica show, surrounded by the majestic backdrop of Berlin, NatureFresh™ Farms has been announced as a finalist for the World’s Most Inspirational Tomato Grower.
“To be recognized this year as one of the top five most inspirational tomato growers in the world is a tremendous achievement,” said Peter Quiring, Owner & President. “Our initiatives to increase fresh tomato consumption have helped raise the bar in delivering consistent quality to the consumer, while reducing food miles wherever possible. To all the nominees, I congratulate on this very important accolade.”
Handed out each year, the award is used to recognize top tomato growers throughout the globe who have been chosen by an international jury from the tomato industry for their contributions. According to a press release, NatureFresh™ Farms was one of five companies chosen as a prospective winner for the award, but the only grower from North America.
The Tomato Inspiration Event will be held on Thursday evening, Friday 9, in Berlin. At this event the 2017 Award will be presented to the winner of the Most Inspirational Tomato Grower.
“It is an honour to be nominated with the worlds best tomato growers,” said John Ketler, Farm General Manager. “We have built our business with a vision of growing great tomatoes year-round at our facilities in Leamington, ON, and now Delta, OH. Supported by a solid infrastructure, forward thinking technology, seed research & development, strategic marketing, and a great team of people, it has helped us create consistent products that our customers love, regardless of the season.”
NatureFresh™ Farms was chosen as a finalist for the distinction due to its approach to consumer education with its mobile Greenhouse Education Center, in addition to the launch of its TomBar™ and TomBall™ Machine. These efforts were specifically cultivated to increase consumption of produce.
Key supporters of the Tomato Inspiration Awards include Priva, Koppert, Svensson, Monsanto, Axia, and Enza Zaden.
