- by Anne Allen
SUMMERLAND, BC, CANADA - PMA Fresh Summit may be in our rear window, but companies are still celebrating the effects of a successful show. Okanagan Specialty Fruit (OSF) showed up and out at this year’s Fresh Summit trade show in Anaheim, California. The developers of the non-browning Arctic® apple were pleased with the reception they saw from attendees.
“We always enjoy attending Fresh Summit—it provides excellent networking opportunities, is the ideal platform to share the newest developments for our company, and demonstrates the many opportunities that Arctic apples offer to the produce industry,” stated Neal Carter, President, in a recent press release. “The just-picked flavor and fresh appearance of Arctic apple slices provide retail and foodservice the ability to utilize fresh-cut apples without sacrificing flavor, convenience, and customer satisfaction. One of my favorite things is to watch people experience this firsthand.”
Showgoers were treated to the company’s Charcuterie Bar, which showcased how Arctic apples can be paired with other ingredients. OSF also offered attendees the chance to spin a prize wheel for a chance to win Arctic apple swag. The grand prize was a branded Apple Watch, which was won by Cherylynn Hebison.
“Winning this Apple Watch is amazing and I could not be more excited,” remarked Hebison. “Stopping by the Arctic booth at the Fresh Summit was not only informational, it was educational. Thank you so much, and I look forward to seeing you next year.”
In addition, OSF has just wrapped its harvest of Arctic® Golden and Arctic® Granny varieties, which will soon become available in select retail locations in the United States and to foodservice customers.
