Day Two of United Fresh 2014
After hours of engaging, meeting, interviewing and walking, the Fresh Cut team has returned to Michigan. After a five-hour drive, we are exhausted, but being able to meet with people important to our industry makes it all worth it.
On Tuesday I bragged about my New Product Awards votes, but now it’s time to brag about the winners. (I must have jinxed the companies I voted for, because very few won.)
Anyway, a very big congratulations is in order for the winners:
Best New Food Safety Solution: FoodLink Fresh – FoodLink
Best New Fruit Product: Crunch Pak with Marvel Apple Snacker, Crunch Pak
Best New Packaging Product: Josie’s Organics Romaine Hearts, Braga Fresh Family Farms
Best New Packing/Processing Equipment: The Frazer strawberry capper, Turatti.
Best New Vegetable Product: Y.E.L.O., Mastronardi Produce/Sunset
I also want to say congratulations to the finalists that were not selected. What an honor!
Before I say goodbye for the final time, I want to thank the United Fresh Produce Association for a great show! As a first time attendee and exhibitor, I couldn’t have asked for more.
See you next year in Chicago!
