Calling the PMA Foodservice Show “the premier show of the nation… dedicated to showcasing fresh produce in a food service environment,” Lauren McDougall of Veg-Fresh in Corona, CA, said her company will showcase red and white California-grown onions in Booth 114 at the Monterey, CA, event.
Lauren, who handles marketing and social media for Veg-Fresh, told OnionBusiness.com that the show offers the perfect setting for onions. “It is a great opportunity to showcase innovative recipes and how to incorporate more onions into foodservice operators’ ever-evolving menus,” she said.
She went on to say with ongoing changes in consumer demands, the show takes on new dimensions. “As produce takes center-of-plate and has more emphasis in the changing food culture, [it becomes] a higher priority to meet the demands of maximizing nutrition in innovative ways.”
To that end, PMA Foodservice Show brings professionals from every segment of the industry to a common ground, and the synergy is contagious.
Veg-Fresh’s recently rebranded, interactive web site, www.vegfresh.com, has a page devoted to foodservice and a tab for onions. The PMA Foodservice booth, she said, is “a mass display of a variety of fresh produce in which onions are an intricate part of our mix.” In addition to the produce display, the company’s National Restaurant team will be on hand for photo ops – visit and be included in the #PMAFSC frame.
With partners and distribution centers nationwide, “Veg-Fresh sees continued support in our core retail and foodservice categories,” Lauren said. And regarding onions, added, “In addition to our conventional onion line, we offer a Good Life Organic™ bulk and bagged onion program. Our bulk onions are individually PLU stickered and packed out of our Corona facility. We also have a strong bagged onion program offering red and yellow California organically grown onions.”
