REIDSVILLE, GA – Shuman Produce has announced exciting plans for the 2017 PMA Fresh Summit—including chef demos featuring RealSweet® brand sweet onions and sweet potatoes and a festive Big Green Egg Giveaway. And this year, Shuman Produce is proudly celebrating 20 years of growing premium sweet onions in Peru.

The year-round grower and shipper of RealSweet onions has plans to showcase its Peruvian sweet onions, available to retailers during the fall and winter months. According to the company’s press release, the premium sweet onions are the product of Peru’s ideal combination of weather and sandy soils. Shuman Produce’s RealSweet Peruvian sweet onions maintain the taste, sweetness, and color consumers have come to expect from RealSweet Vidalia onions and maintain supply of the sweetest onions possible year-round.

 Chef & The Fat Man

Kevin Jenkins and Erik Holdo, also known as the personalities Chef & The Fat Man, will once again host live cooking demos featuring RealSweet Peruvian sweet onions and sweet potatoes at Shuman Produce’s booth #4237. These two culinary creators will, according to Shuman Produce, both entertain and provide delicious meal samples that highlight the company’s products.

This year, Shuman Produce also plans to highlight its RealSweet brand sweet potato crop. Harvested in Georgia in late-September, these sweet potatoes are expected to be available to retailers in time for Thanksgiving and will be available in both 40-lb. bulk options and consumer pack varieties.

Big Green Egg Giveaway

PMA Fresh Summit attendees can also enter to win a Big Green Egg by visiting Shuman Produce’s booth. Big Green Egg is the highest-quality ceramic kamado-style charcoal grill and can be used as a smoker, oven, or grill. Lucky entrants who win will be able to enjoy RealSweet Peruvian sweet onions in a variety of ways with this perfect complement to tailgates and barbecues.
