Opportunity to win resort trip, free produce, groceries
US: Wholesum Harvest “Grow With Us” Facebook contestOrganic grower Wholesum Harvest, which broke ground on a new 12-acre greenhouse in December, is also aspiring to grow the company’s online presence. Between April 1 and August 31, 2012, Wholesum Harvest will be running the "Grow With Us" contest, a competition that encourages Wholesum’s Facebook friends and their friends to 'like' the company’s Facebook page and register for giveaways.
"The first harvest at our new greenhouse should yield approximately nine million pounds of certified organic tomatoes, growing our ability to meet consumer demand for fresh produce year round," said Ricardo Crisantes, vice president of sales and marketing, Wholesum Harvest. "Since we are dramatically expanding production, we are also interested in securing a larger market share. Social media, such as Facebook, offer invaluable tools to regularly reach our existing customers and grow our customer base."
For every increase of 500 'likes,' Wholesum will randomly draw a name from contest registrants. The winner will receive a crate of top quality, certified organic produce to be shipped to his or her home.
Additionally, if Wholesum is able to reach 2,000 'likes' by August 31, the company will draw a name from all registered contestants. The winner will receive a $500 gift certificate to the grocery store where he or she buys Wholesum Harvest produce.
If, by August 31, the company reaches 3,500 'likes,' the winner will receive a three day, two night trip for two to Tubac Golf resort in Tubac, Arizona. The package includes airfare from any airport in the continental United States. The winner will also attend a party celebrating the new greenhouse’s first harvest and enjoy a meal prepared by a Wholesum Harvest chef served inside the greenhouse.
The company will award both prizes—the $500 gift certificate and the resort trip—if the Facebook page gets 5,000 'likes' by August 31.
Contestants must register via the "Grow With Us" button on the Favorites bar on Wholesum’s Facebook page to be eligible for prizes. “Liking” the page does not constitute registration.
All contest registrants will receive occasional product information, recipes, organic gardening tips, and information about Wholesum’s commitment to sustainable agriculture.
“Our customers are our best ambassadors, and we look forward to rewarding them for their loyalty and for spreading the word about Wholesum Harvest,” said Crisantes.
