Village Farms is ready to hit the course for PMA’s Fresh Summit in Anaheim on October 18 and 19, 2019!
Swing by and tee off at booth #3991 with all the Village Farmers: President & CEO Michael DeGiglio will be there along with the US and Canadian sales team members Sr. VP of Sales Bret Wiley, National Sales Director Steve Poklemba, Director of Strategic Business & Sales Development Lyra Vance, District Sales & Fulfillment Manager Carlos Flores, Regional Sales Manager Krysten DeGiglio, Northwest District Sales Manager Aman Chatha, and Sales Manager Andrew Sable, and of course members of the marketing team: Director of Brand Marketing & Communication Helen Aquino and Marketing Coordinator Avery LeFils.
Try your luck at hitting your own hole in one for a chance to be featured on the leaderboard. Don’t worry, if you end up with a bogey there will still be plenty of delicious refreshments available. Village Farms’ chef will be on hand offering healthy bites that highlight the versatility and exceptional flavor of the Heavenly Villagio Marzano® tomato along with their other unique and exclusive varieties like: Sinfully Sweet Campari®, Maverick Mix®, Lorabella Blossom®, Cabernet Estate Reserve®, Cherry No. 9 Fall in Love Again®, Lip Smackn’ Grapes®, Luscious Seedless Long English®, Scrumptious Minis®, and Sweet Bells®. Stop by for some Heavenly Villagio Marzano® roasted tomato hummus, pomodori al forno, spicy Asian cucumber noodle salad and more!
Village Farms is driving more than the specialty tomato category in sales and flavor, they strive to promote a healthy lifestyle too.
"We look forward to seeing everyone in Anaheim,” said Helen L. Aquino, Director Brand Marketing & Communications for Village Farms. "PMA is the premier event for our industry that provides exceptional networking opportunities for us with our customers. We have a number of great things planned this year that we can’t wait to share with everyone. With tomato, cucumber and pepper varieties like ours it’s easy to live healthy. Our produce provides a fantastic and flavorful eating experience and we love being able to provide our consumers with fresh and easy to prepare meal ideas that they can feel good about.”
The company will be featuring their exclusive flagship tomato, the Heavenly Villagio Marzano®. Our customers tell us they love it because it is the one, the only, and the original authentic mini San Marzano. Heavenly Villagio Marzano® is exclusive to Village Farms and the only true mini San Marzano available in North America today. As the category driver for the specialty tomato segment it’s no wonder that this variety will always be your hole in one! Heavenly Villagio Marzano® is now being grown organically and offered in our most popular 10 oz. pack size - it seems that there’s nothing this little tomato can’t do.
Don’t forget - if you find your battery running low on the back nine not to worry, Village Farms will be there for a recharge as the company is sponsoring phone charging stations throughout the show.
Village Farms vertically-integrated and environmentally friendly hydroponic greenhouses are definitely something to feel good about since they provide Garden Fresh Flavor® 365 days a year while using less water and land than conventional growing methods. Their farms and distribution centers are strategically located throughout The U.S., Canada and Mexico to maximize freshness and flavor guaranteeing a consistent product and supply year-round.
