- by Jordan Okumura
KINGSVILLE, ON - Bright, vibrant, and energetic – you know the PMA Fresh Summit presence I am talking about. And this year promises to be no different. Set to the backdrop of New Orleans, Louisiana, SUNSET® is bringing flavor, inspiration, and ingenuity to the trade show floor with a dynamic team and portfolio to impress.
With the 2017 show just days away, President Paul Mastronardi joins me to dish on the upcoming event and what we can expect from this pioneering company.
“This year has been focused on growth. New acquisitions, new partnerships, and new product innovations related to popular consumer trends such as snacking and convenience,” Paul shares, giving us a taste of some of the excitement we can expect at the SUNSET booth. “Just like everything else at SUNSET®, flavor comes first. We don’t put anything on the market without thorough testing and we have a dedicated team to develop products that fit the needs of the consumer. We match those needs with our flavor standards to create innovative products that consumers across North America love.”
The company is excited to showcase its uniquely striped Aloha™ Peppers this year, which are as flavorful as they are colorful and are guaranteed to bring a warm and tropical atmosphere to any produce department. In addition to other mysterious products like the Mediterranean created Monterosa, SUNSET has also expanded the company’s pasta kit line, which attendees will be able to see and taste for the first time at Fresh Summit booth #533. Just follow the crowds and the great aromas!
“SUNSET® is constantly researching new products and packaging. As the company that pioneered top seal, which is now an industry standard in fresh and sustainable packaging, we are always innovating to drive trends and stay connected with our consumers and customers,” Paul tells me.
This greenhouse exhibitor is a must-visit for anyone visiting Fresh Summit next week, so be sure to mark them down. And if you haven’t, well, SUNSET is hard to miss.
