With five nominations across multiple categories, Mastronardi Produce was among the top nominated brand owners. Dominating the Fresh category, the greenhouse leader took home both of the Best in Class awards given out in the category for its Queen of Greens® Salad Kits and SUNSET® Angel Sweet® & Dip and Qukes™ & Dip Club Packs. Mastronardi Produce also received two Awards of Distinction: one for SUNSET® WOW® Berries in Brand Revitalization and another for Queen of Greens® Salad Kits in Brand Extension.
“We have a passion for marketing our greenhouse grown produce,” says Paul Mastronardi, President and CEO of Mastronardi Produce Ltd. “We put as much creativity and innovation into our design process as we do into the careful cultivation of premium, high-flavor varieties. Our in-house marketing and packaging teams do a phenomenal job of breathing inspiration into the produce section, and these awards are a reflection of their talent and effort.”
