Ocean Mist Farms, the grower and marketer of fresh artichokes, will showcase its Organic Artichoke retail packs in the “New Product Showcase” at this year’s New York Produce Show in booth #242.
Following the debut at this year’s Fresh Summit, Ocean Mist’s organic artichoke packaging is now available in a two-count handle bag and a two-count recyclable corrugated clamshell pack. These include size 24 or 30 artichokes, a great size to prepare a side dish during the holidays. Understanding the strong demand for Italian vegetables in the Northeast, Ocean Mist will also be displaying its winter vegetables, including Italian staples like brussels sprouts, cardone and fennel.
“We’re looking forward to another great year at the New York Produce Show,” said Diana McClean, senior director of marketing at Ocean Mist Farms. “We had great engagement and conversations with our trade partners last year considering the Northeast is known for its heavy distribution of artichokes. This show is a great opportunity for us to put our fresh artichokes and other winter Italian vegetables on display.”
During the month of December, Ocean Mist will prepare for its winter promotion, “Peace, Love & Artichokes,” beginning January 15. The campaign aims to increase artichoke demand by focusing on healthy eating at the start of the New Year and promoting the nutritional benefits of artichokes to encourage in-store purchases.
