|Ocean Mist Farms Plans Multiple Activities at PMA Fresh Summit
|Bag giveaway, different menu daily and Twitter contest planned
CASTROVILLE, Calif. – (September 28, 2009) – Ocean Mist Farms is planning multiple activities at this year’s PMA Fresh Summit in Anaheim.
To support development of the future generation of the industry, the company is a sponsor of the 40 Under 40 Event on Oct. 3 as well as the PMA FIT program. The Ocean Mist human resources staff will be participating in the FIT career fair as part of being a $50,000-level contributor to the FIT program.
Ocean Mist will be promoting eco-friendly practices at the Fresh Summit this year using earth-friendly serving ware for all food served (thousands of servings over the course of the show), along with offering recycling stations within its booth. In coordination with PMA the company will also give away 3,000 Ocean Mist Farms- branded reusable shopping totes at the entrance to the exhibition floor.
All of the activities are designed to bring attention to the debut of the company’s comprehensive redesigned new packaging and three new items: Leaf bikini bands, herb sleeves and an Ocean Mist branded wrap leaf, said Kori Tuggle, marketing manager.
"We plan for PMA’s annual Fresh Summit year round and want to leverage the exposure to the industry as much as possible," Tuggle said. "There are several things the Ocean Mist booth is known for and one of them is having the best food at the show."
Chef Tony Baker of Montrio Bistro in Monterey, Calif., will do cooking demos throughout the show as well as serve a different menu daily in the Ocean Mist Farms booth (#4138).
For the first time this year, Ocean Mist will use Twitter as a tool to give away new generation iPod Nanos (with video and radio function) daily during the three days of the Fresh Summit expo.
To win, participants must follow Ocean Mist Farm on Twitter in order to receive the daily contest announcement via Twitter, be the first to arrive at the Twitter Spot in the Ocean Mist Farms booth (#4138) and show a retweet of any earlier Ocean Mist post.
