Mann is also listed as the "Go to brand" for fresh vegetables and broccoli cole slaw in Lillien’s book. The Hungry Girl co-branded packages are a finalist for the 2009 PMA Impact Award: Excellence in Packaging.

By partnering with Lillien, who has featured Mann Packing products in her e-newsletter for more than a year, Mann Packing reaches more than 800,000 daily e-newsletter subscribers and leverages that exposure to shoppers at the store level, according to the release. The co-branded products have Lillien’s approval, recipes and ideas but Mann Packing also has brand presence. The co-brand reaches Mann Packing’s target audience of young women, moms and aging baby boomers.
