Leamington, ON (June 19th, 2016) – Long known as a leading greenhouse bell pepper grower, NatureFresh™ Farms took top honours in 4 key categories in the very popular Greenhouse Vegetable Competition this weekend.
Amongst dozens of entries, NatureFresh™ won the following categories:
– People’s Choice For Hottest Tomato: NatureFresh™ Starburst Tomato
– Best Cocktail Tomato: NatureFresh™ TOMZ™ Sweet Red Cocktail Tomato
– Best Red Bell Pepper: NatureFresh™ Red Bell Pepper
– Best Yellow Bell Pepper: NatureFresh™ Yellow Bell Pepper
Held each June during the Leamington Fair, The Greenhouse Vegetable Competition allows for greenhouse growers & marketers to showcase the best that they grow. With 16 different product segments split in to 3 primary categories as the Hottest Tomato, Perfect Pepper, and Coolest Cucumbers, the general public has the opportunity to taste hundreds of different types of vegetables to select the best entries in the competition. Done under secret ballot, consumers get a true blind taste test on selecting the best varieties. The entry with the highest amount of public votes through Friday and Saturday for each competition wins the People’s Choice Award
“We are very pleased to have won these top awards for our tomatoes and bell peppers”, said Peter Quiring, Owner & President of NatureFresh™ Farms. “ Our employees take great pride in growing the best vegetables we can and when you receive awards like this, especially the People’s Choice Award, you know you are doing good things”, added Quiring.
All funds raised from the Greenhouse Competitions go to R.E.A.CH. International. This local charity has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to build schools & clinics, drill water wells, and sponsor and care for impoverished children in Uganda, Africa.
NatureFresh™ will be featuring the winning varieties at the upcoming United Fresh Tradeshow & Convention this week in Chicago. To learn more about the varieties and the extensive products that NatureFresh™ grows, visit booth #1238.
