Kingsville, ON (June 27, 2018) SUNSET® continues to be a leader in produce innovation, winning an Innovation Award at the United Fresh Tradeshow in Chicago.
Up against eight finalists in the category, the Aloha™ pepper brought home the award for Best New Vegetable Product. All Innovation Award finalists were displayed at the Innovation Showcases at the United Fresh Tradeshow and voted on by attendees over the course of the two-day show.
“It is always an honor to receive an award that is voted on by our peers and the retail partners who inspire and challenge us to bring new ideas and new flavors to market,” shared CEO Paul Mastronardi. “Winning this award gives us confidence that we are delivering on-trend, innovative ideas that meet the needs of consumers.”
Part of their Chef Inspired collection, the Aloha pepper is a unique striped pepper that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palette. Its sweet flavor and beautiful stripes of red and orange are unlike any other pepper on the market today.
“At SUNSET, we’re on a mission to help our retail partners continue to grow their businesses by delivering consistently excellent flavor to their consumers,” continues Mastronardi. “We will continue to wow our retailers and consumers with exciting, innovative products, revolutionary package design and most importantly, unbeatable flavor that encourages people to eat more produce and live healthier lives.”
