KINGSVILLE, ON - SUNSET® is continuing to earn accolades for innovation; the company’s You Make Me™ line of pasta kits secured the Packaging Innovation Award at the CPMA Convention and Trade Show held in Vancouver, Canada, this week—marking the second innovation award that SUNSET has secured this month.
“It is extremely gratifying to earn the approval of our peers here in Canada at the CPMA Convention and Trade Show for our You Make Me pasta kits,” shared CEO Paul Mastronardi. “We were honored to receive the Gateway to Innovation Award at the Viva Fresh Expo in San Antonio, Texas earlier this month for this exciting product, and I look forward to seeing more positive responses in the future.”
SUNSET’s line of four pasta kits were selected from a field of 48 products featured in the CPMA New Product Showcase. SUNSET was selected by a panel of industry leaders—who honored the You Make Me line, according to CPMA, for “taking packaging to the next level.”
According to a press release, the You Make Me pasta kits launched by SUNSET in 2017 were designed to provide busy consumers with a healthy and fast meal solution using fresh produce. Each pasta kit contains fresh SUNSET tomatoes, perfectly portioned pasta, a spice packet, and some come with gourmet infused oil. You Make Me is available in four different flavors, Classic Italian (“You Make Me Fresh”), Spicy Arrabbiata (“You Make Me Hot”), Creamy Parmesan (“You Make Me Blush”) and Cold Pasta Salad (“You Make Me Chill”).
