“TopLine Farms is focused on flavor,” stated Jimmy Coppola, Account Marketing Manager. “Innovation on a varietal level starts with flavor, and these three awards are a testament to our commitment on keeping focused on flavor.” 

The awards which Westmoreland-TopLine Farms took home from the event are as follows:

  • Best Cocktail Cucumber
  • Best Hot Pepper
  • Best Overall Pepper: Westmoreland-TopLine Farms Hot Pepper 

At this year’s greenhouse competition, judges anonymously reviewed each product to select the winners. The company stated in a press release that produce items entered into the competition were judged on flavor, taste, look, and smell

Judges privately reviewed the entrants prior to allowing the public access to the competition tent, and each entry was marked only with a number to ensure unbiased results were achieved. Winners were selected in each category based on which received the highest score

All funds raised from the 2016 Greenhouse Competition will go to R.E.A.C.H. International to help provide children with wellness and living care in Uganda, Africa.
