In light of its efforts that helped contribute to an increase in fruit and vegetable consumption and its support of the Fruits & Veggies–More Matters brand and national health campaign, Green Giant Fresh has been named a 2015 Role Model by Produce for Better Health (PBH).
"The nutritional features and benefits of our premium fresh vegetables are a natural part of our messaging," said VP of Marketing Jennifer Fancher. "But we also feel a great responsibility to help consumers understand the versatility of vegetables and the easy swaps that can be made to improve the overall nutritional value of dishes while eliminating some fat, calories and starches.”
To help today's label-reading consumers who are eager to learn more about what they’re eating and serving to their children, and how it will affect their overall health, Green Giant Fresh provides usage ideas and recipes for its different vegetables, value-added products and vegetable blends via on-pack information and recipes.
“Providing preparation suggestions and tips is an important step for us in continually innovating healthful products," added Fancher, "and we always encourage our consumers to be imaginative and create their own in-home culinary masterpieces with our peeled, cut, chopped or prepared products that help eliminate prep, mess and clean up."
