US: Record year in contributions for Eurofresh Farms

As the end of 2007 nears, Eurofresh Farms, the leading year-round producer and marketer of certified, pesticide-free greenhouse tomatoes in the United States, has announced that in 2007 the company made the most financial contributions and partnered in the most community projects than any other year.

Donations and community sponsorship in the regions of Willcox and Snowflake, Ariz. reached an all time high in 2007, which is something the company wishes to celebrate as the year draws to a close. "Community involvement is a priority for Eurofresh Farms", said Ferguson. 'As our business has grown, it's natural our community involvement and contributions would grow, too, and 2007 has been our most successful year yet. As Eurofresh Farms looks forward to 2008, Arizona's organizations can look for our continued support.

This past year, Eurofresh Farms sponsored the Snowflake High School Lobo football team, the Arizona State BBQ Championships at the Taylor Corn Festival, the Taylor Rodeo fireworks as well as the presenting sponsors of Rex Allen Days Rodeo, helping with the Rex Allen Days Rodeo Queen Contest and the winner's travel throughout the year. The company also donated thousands of pounds of tomatoes to local charities, food banks, Bishop's storehouses and many other charitable causes year-round.

As well as sponsoring Lobo football, Eurofresh Farms reached out throughout the year to Cochise and Graham County sports programs, helping fund city softball, baseball and soccer programs to ensure players had new uniforms and playing equipment for the season. "Eurofresh Farms is committed to promoting healthy living", said Ferguson. In addition to eating right, education and sports are important components of this, which is why we take a strong interest in helping the youth in our community.

In education, Eurofresh Farms worked with Arizona Project WET, one of Arizona's leading water-education programs, and with the statewide chapter of Arizona Future Farmers of America. College internships and other forms of higher education aid have continued to be supported and developed at the agriculture departments by Eurofresh Farms at University of Arizona, Eastern Arizona College and Cochise Community College.

"Our hometowns of Willcox and Snowflake have given so much to our business", said Ferguson. "On many levels we are a part of people's lives, and we pride ourselves on being able to give back to the groups who help make Eurofresh Farms a success."
