Sysco’s Julie Olivarria and Ocean Mist® Farms' Julie Criswell Win the AndNowUKnow Holiday Sweater Contest

THE HOLIDAY UNIVERSE - There are so many ways to celebrate the holidays, and here at AndNowUKnow, we like to see how our friends do it with sweaters. This month, we received a host of submissions from those who reimagined the rules (wink wink) to others who came with designs fit to fuel laughter the whole month through.

This morning, we shared a selection of Yearbook holiday pics and sweaters galore, and now we are announcing the winners, selected by our editorial team!

Sweater or not you like your holiday attire silly or traditional, we found these knitted wonders put the bow on December cheer.

To our foodservice delight, Julie Olivarria, Vice President, Produce, Sysco, played along with our contest and took home the winning buy-side title with her love of llamas—and their love of Christmas.

And for our supply-side most stylish and savvy, the winning sweater encouraged us all to start Googling the silliest of Christmas sweaters for next year’s contest. Please help us congratulate Julie Criswell, Ocean Mist® Farms’ new Internal Communications Manager, on her holiday best this year!

Congrats to these two amazing Julies on their winning sweaters and the inspiration to raise the bar even higher next year! Keep an eye out for that late Christmas present from AndNowUKnow, Julie and Julie!

Thank you for all of your holiday cheer, continued support, and passion for the fresh produce industry, its people, and its vision!

By the way, sweater lovers, it is never too early to start shopping for (or creating) next year’s contest-competing candidates. We look forward to your 2022 submissions and all your fun and fancy digs!
