Guadalupe, Calif.-based Apio received the Packaging Innovation Award at the Canadian Produce Marketing Association trade show for its Salad Shake Ups.
“We were delighted to be awarded the inaugural Packaging Innovation Award at CPMA,” Anne Byerly, vice president of marketing for Apio, said in a news release. “This newly created award recognizes excellence in packaging designed to answer consumer needs and to maximize the sales of fresh produce.”
Salad Shake Ups are designed to be as convenient as possible.
“When consumers pull back the top, they find a tray with packets of toppings and a fork,” Byerly said in the release. “They remove the tray to reveal the salad blend, then pour the toppings and the dressing onto the vegetables. Next, they flip over the tray, snap it onto the bowl, shake to mix the ingredients, and then unsnap the lid and eat the salad with the fork. Easy mixing and no mess.”
Salad Shake Ups are available in Avocado Ranch, Tropical Lime and Raspberry Acai, with each recipe containing at least 10 ingredients.
