Albert’s has teamed up with the USA Pear Association to promote pears with two Albert’s pear-a-palooza contests.
The pear-a-palooza contests aim to bring attention to the abundance of pears in the marketplace by working with the USA Pear Association to provide support materials like POS signs, recipes, and training
The winners for the first contest included: Imperfect Produce from San Antonio, Texas; Northbound Organics from Minneapolis, Minnesota; Ever'mans Market from Pensacola, Florida and Greens Natural Market from Mt Kisco, New York.
Albert’s second pear-a-palooza contest runs from December 12th to the 16th of January and is open to all Albert’s customers. There are two ways to win, either by largest increase in sales, year over year, or by creating the best pear display using POS materials provided by the USA Pear Association. Cash prizes are awarded in each category:1st place - $500, and 2nd place - $250.

It distributes more than 300 seasonal fruits and vegetables from local, regional, national and international sources.
