- by Christofer Oberst
SALINAS, CA - Mann Packing Co. has been named the very first recipient of Canadian Produce Marketing Association’s (CPMA) new, monthly Fresh Health Award due to the company's continued commitment to increasing fresh produce consumption.
“Mann’s has been committed to the Half Your Plate message since day one,” said Ben Alviano, National Business Manager for Mann’s in Canada. “We are thrilled with the success of Half Your Plate and are proud of our partnership with CPMA to promote the health benefits of eating more fresh vegetables at every meal.”
Chosen in particular for its continued support of the Half Your Plate initiative and for their efforts to promote healthy eating, Mann’s has been including the association’s logo on the company’s stringless snap peas across Canada, and have been providing coupons for Half Your Plate’s giveaway at the Food Bloggers of Canada conference in Montréal.
Ben was also the recipient of CPMA’s Mary FitzGerald Award at last year’s expo in Montreal, Canada. The Mary FitzGerald Award is given to those under the age of 40 working in Canadian produce, and focuses on generosity, innovation, and the demonstration of a passion for produce.
According to a press release, Mann’s has helped share the message of making healthy choices and eating more vegetables by using the hashtag #HalfYourPlate through its engaging social media campaign.
